We all know and love pro golfer Hunter Mahan, who used to live in the Creeks of Preston Hollow, but sold his home to another well-loved, Dallas-born and raised pro golfer, Jordan Spieth.

Hunter and his family moved to Highland Park. I knew they had built a gorgeous lake house out at Long Cove, our closest heart throb, vacation home nirvana only a couple hours east of Dallas on the deepest, coolest part of Cedar Creek Lake.

Long Cove rocks.

5528-Springmeadow-1

Our Inwood National Bank House of the Week at 5528 Springmeadow Drive is one of the finest examples of an American ranch remodel I’ve ever seen. It’s also down the street from one of the most beloved American country music stars of all time, Charley Pride. Pride has lived in this beautiful private neighborhood for over twenty years. David Alan Coe also called it home for a while, and of course, Jordan Spieth is just across the way in Preston Hollow.

Front view from street

Recall this stunning townhome in a DELICIOUS part of Uptown so walkable that you could actually flip-flop it to Knox Street, the Apple Store, Kate Spade, all the great places? 4321 Travis Walk is a 4368 square foot, three-story townhouse that is so modern and stunning you will gasp because it is loaded to the gills. And you know I am not kidding.

And I guess having a famous owner helped it sell for more than asking price. Before he moved to Bluffview, this was the bachelor pad of Dallas’ fave pro golfer Jordan Spieth.

The townhome has a courtyard loaded with a firepit and a peaceful fountain. Walk right into a limestone foyer and floors everywhere of rich, dark bamboo. To the left, a huge living room, to the right, you have the dining room and Bulthaup kitchen which is fully loaded with sleek counters, cabinets, and tip-top level appliances including a wine cooler. Bulthaup! The garage entrance is in this room, with a close by powder bath. Bedrooms, three of them, up all with en suite baths.

Listed for $1,199,000 with Debra Robinson of Allie Beth Allman, who just got the listing in September, the house sold for $1,199,999 on October 9. Which means the new owner must be settling in right about now.  Sure hope all the mail’s been forwarded!

Here is Jordan SpiethNo. 2 in the Official World Golf Ranking, getting his coveted green jacket. So proud of this guy! He graduated from Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas, though I have heard an unconfirmed rumor (which is why it’s a rumor) he spent some time at St Mark’s.

Jordan went to the University of Texas at Austin, left midway through his sophomore year in 2013, and started playing pro golf. He learned to play golf as a wee one at Brookhaven Country Club, where his family, who lives in Midway Hills, still belongs. He’s got the gift!

This weekend, the humble and most gentlemanly young man from Dallas graduated to major golf champion on the sport’s biggest stage. The 21-year-old held off strong runs and swings from the world’s best players. On Sunday, he became the world’s second-youngest golfer to claim the highly coveted green jacket. Tiger Woods was the first in 1997.

The University of Texas even burned UT tower orange in his honor Sunday night.

Magnificent Old Preston Hollow beauty with exquisite amenities!
