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…)
