This Marvelous Mansion Is the Epitome of Westlake Luxury

And the homeowners have updated this property to sell quickly.

Want to get away from the Dallas hustle and bustle but not exactly ready to leave a life of luxury? Many who have this itch to stretch their legs without skimping on amenities make the move to the prestigious Vaquero community in Westlake. This four-bedroom, 4.2-bathroom property has 6,060 square feet of living space that has been recently updated by the current owners to ensure that the selling process is seamless.

Speaking of updates, some of the improvements are what make this home so special. For starters, they took care of the obvious things like a fresh interior paint job. The property has also been updated with new white oak wood floors downstairs and refinished wood and new carpet upstairs. This instantly brings the property into 2021 with a fresh, clean look.  The countertops are timeless and will never go in or out of style.

This is the ultimate house for having a great time. For starters, it is nearly impossible to walk around the lower level of the house without catching glimpses of the sparkling pool. There is also a pergola and a covered living area complete with a fireplace and grill. Essentially you will be spending all fall and spring out there enjoying entertaining al fresco. The upstairs is where you lay back and relax with a fun game area for kids and adults alike in addition to a media room for watching a movie as a family or catching the Dallas Cowboys on Sundays.

The neighborhood is home to the ever-exclusive Vaquero club that offers both opportunities for social engagement in the community in addition to an impressive golf course designed by Tom Fazio, a sparkling pool, tennis, and state-of-the-art workout equipment. This property, of course, is a part of the 525 acres of land that once was the Hunt brothers’ Circle T Ranch in Westlake. Read all about the club and its membership process here.
