The auction was Saturday, as we told you, and so many have asked us, did 3508 Bryn Mawr actually sell at the auction?

You bet it did. Terms are not being revealed, but you know I will find out.

Created by Emerson Residential in 2006, the rock-solid stunner has five bedrooms, seven full bathrooms, one half bath, a designer kitchen, expansive master suite, and lovely outdoor area with a covered patio and fireplace. Enough room for a small pool, and there is even a small sun room off the back yard that would be a perfect entertainment hub.

The house sold at auction on September 1, the market listing price with Allie Beth Allman’s Lillie Young a hair under $3.5 million. This home has been listed for as much as $3.9 in the past. Elite Auctions’ Market Director Southwest, Alicia Chmielewski, couldn’t give me many details other than the fact that she had two very happy home sellers!

You have heard us go on and on about former Texas Ranger Michael Young’s fantastic home at 3508 Bryn Mawr Drive in University Park.

We had an open house event there a Saturday or two ago, and you couldn’t pull me out. 

Created by Emerson Residential in 2006, this house has five bedrooms, seven full bathrooms, one half bath, a designer kitchen, expansive master suite, and lovely outdoor area with a covered patio and fireplace. Enough room for a small pool, and there is even a small sun room off the back yard that would be a perfect entertainment hub. I was totally blown away by the home, quality of construction, design and details. A more family-friendly home in UP I have not seen.

Now I am blown away by the fact that the house is selling tomorrow, September 1 (August is gone!) at 11:00 a.m WITHOUT RESERVE. And someone is going to get the deal of the century. I mean, the home is listed with Allie Beth Allman’s Lilly Young for just under $3.5 million. Hec, once it was listed for $3.9!

“This University Park neighborhood is just a short commute to downtown Dallas and in the attendance zone for Highland Park ISD, a major draw for many,” said Alicia Chmielewski, Elite Auctions Market Director, Southwest. “An open floorplan and luxe amenities make this home appealing for the discerning buyer.”

No kidding. The Highland Park School District is one of the most coveted in the southwest. (more…)

Auction Alert! Snag Mark Teixeira's Westlake Vaquero Mansion with No-Reserve | CandysDirt.com

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. (more…)
