As you know, I have an ongoing love affair with Vaquero Club for its location, topography, greenery and privacy, among other reasons. Several others do as well, given that CEOs of major corporations, professional athletes and at least one famous television/radio personality all live within spitting distance of the most fabulous estate I have ever seen in these parts: 2252 King Fisher Drive.
I also love Vaquero for the schools. They draw buyers and keep property values tip top: parents have their choice of Keller ISD or the public charter school Westlake Academy, which serves K-12 and is an International Baccalaureate World School. Children who live in Westlake can attend Westlake Academy automatically — there are close to 2,000 students outside of the area on a waiting list to get into this highly coveted school.
2252 King Fisher Drive sits on a double lot of 3.83 acres, one of the largest in the guarded, stone-walled estate community that boasts 24 hour security, a Tom Fazio designed golf club, dining rooms, spa, tennis, fishing lakes, trails, trees, hills, and all a short drive to Southlake Town Center and DFW Airport.
Vaquero is exactly 7 miles from DFW Airport. I know, because I dropped off my kids before I sank into this home.
To say that once I walked in, I did not want to leave, is a true statement because I didn’t. I stayed for dinner, like the architect, Aaron Angle, who literally lived with the owners to provide the perfect, most custom home possible.
But truth be told, the love affair began the moment I walked behind the French wooden gates that open automatically. Since the security at Vaquero is so tight, those gates are for show and to get you thinking about the grape vines and wildflowers and daffodils you will be finding beyond them. (more…)
