As you may know, we hosted a CandysDirt Staff Party last Saturday afternoon in the beautiful enclave of Vaquero where former Texas Rangers’ first baseman Mark Teixeira has owned a home for more than a decade. It gave me a chance to do two things: really see this house up close, and try to find Rex Tillerson’s house (he’s now trying to sell his lake house, again) and Glenn Beck’s spread. I hear that Beck is selling his private jet. Could the Vaquero spread be next?
But mostly, I peeked in all the corners of this fabulous, sprawling Westlake mansion, a waterfront property, actually. Sitting on 1.08 acres, the 8,554-square-foot house offers an ideal floorplan with five bedrooms, four full bathrooms, four half baths, three living areas, two dining areas, indoor-outdoor theater with wet bar, master suite wing, game room, a separate casita for guests, wine cellar, two-story office, pool, hot tub, and cloistered patio. The custom millwork is part of a look that can only be described as perfection!
Valued at more than $4 million, the stone-and-stucco house at 2220 King Fisher Dr. will be auctioned May 12 at 11 a.m. in a no-reserve event hosted by Elite Auctions. That is correct, no reserve. Mr. Teixeira means business here.
I noticed so many details you may want to know about.
The main living area Great Room has a huge, retractable screen so you can keep the door to the pool open for fresh air without any mosquitoes.
(If you do not have a screened in porch, get one.)
The master bath is a spa bath, with hammered copper sinks. The custom closets have copper insets. Even the main kitchen sink is copper. The HVAC vents are custom made grillwork. The upstairs game room was added on, but you would never know it. The house is rock solid and I didn’t see nary a crack.
Teixeira has said Vaquero was “the coolest resort community I’d ever seen,” and living there felt like going on a “mini vacation” with its golf lifestyle. This home is like a mini-vacation 24/7. The home is on a corner lot. The homes in Vaquero are amazing, and you will have many celebrities and sports pros as neighbors. In fact, many a Texas Ranger and even Sean Payton of the New Orleans Saints, has lived at 2220 King Fisher Drive.
Who knows, after Saturday, you might just be the next famous resident!
