In just two weeks, one of the most coveted European-inspired estates in Westlake will hit the auction block. And it could be yours if the price is right. The no-reserve auction will take place Tuesday, June 25, through Thursday, June 27, and features a one-of-a-kind custom home you have to see to believe. Which is precisely why we went straight to the source, owner and longtime Westlake Mayor, Laura Wheat, for the scoop.

“There is nothing else like 2006 Navasota Cove,” says Wheat. “It is a blend of European luxury and modern amenities on 1.25-acres, with mature trees, flowing fountains, and a resort style pool and gardens, designed by Elizabeth Smidt of Great Gardens. The grounds are truly magical. Once inside, guests find themselves in the soaring wood paneled rotunda that has taken many a breath away.”

And there is more than meets the eye in every room. Architect Richard Drummond Davis is responsible for the design, alongside Dallas builder, Paul Kramer, for construction.

“Although we were the first owners, we did not have any input on the original project,” adds Wheat. “Over the years, we have developed a great working relationship with Anne-Michelle Cooley and Joanie Cooley of Cooley and Cooley Interior Design. We have a rule that all four of us have to agree on the direction we’re taking. It’s a rule that has served us well!”

In addition to its idyllic locale and magazine-quality interiors, the home affords ample space for hosting elegant affairs, from intimate parties and social gatherings to large weddings and corporate events. And as indicated by the property brochure, “the majestic wood-paneled rotunda at 2006 Navasota Cove is perfect for cocktails and is a sophisticated backdrop for formal galas.”
