If you’ve ever driven on East Texas backroads, you know there are a few customs to follow. Number one, give a friendly wave to local traffic, especially cowboy hat-wearing gentlemen driving old pickup trucks. Number two, just know that Google Maps probably won’t help you here, and that’s certainly the case for getting to this east Texas luxury lake home we’re featuring today on CandysDirt.com. Trust us, the two hour trip out of Dallas is worth it for this 4,858-sq-ft lodge-style lakefront property that’s up for auction by Elite Auctions later this month.

OPEN HOUSE PREVIEW | 1-4 p.m., Nov. 10-11. The auction takes place 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 17, with final preview on Friday, Nov. 16. Visit EliteAuctions.com/109-Pennys-Path for pre-registration instructions and driving directions.

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!

Did you catch the article in the Wall Street Journal this week? “Former Major League Baseball All-Star Michael Young is auctioning his 7,715-square-foot Dallas mansion without reserve next month.”

That’s the one we have been telling you about! That’s where we are having our CandysDirt.com Staff Party TOMORROW! This is a rare opportunity to buy a celebrity home at auction in coveted University Park, with top rated schools and security, on a quarter acre of land with five bedrooms and seven-and-a-half baths, hand-scraped hardwood floors, recirculating water heaters, and decorative lighting fixtures, to say the least. And it is listed for $3.5 million. Michael Young said he wanted to take a more “creative route” to sell it.

On the north shores of Grapevine Lake, I’ve discovered an elegant Flower Mound waterfront home sitting on just over 1 acre. This beauty was recently reimagined and we’re going to be there July 14!  

Earlier this week, I wrote about the first property of our progressive staff party, the massive Chateau Du Lac mansion at 5905 Giverny. Now it’s time to talk about the second fabulous house, just 1.6 miles away.
