When the Second Home is Better Than The First: Sean Payton Buys $3.4 Million Vaquero House Complete With Lit Up Disco!
It’s official, he owns dirt in the Lone Star State. Sean Payton and fam are now card-carrying Texans! In early January, Sean and his wife bought a stunning 7,785 square foot home in a delicious part of Vaquero that is honestly one of the most beautiful homes I’ve seen out there, maybe anywhere. I mean, no offense NOLA, but you would not find a house like this in Louisiana. No way Jose. PLEASE check out this slide show for detailed photos. Continue reading
As we told you here first, former Fox entertainer Glenn Beck confirmed he’s not only moving to Dallas but in fact, the family is already here. (Wonder how it makes the folks in Westlake feel when Beck says he’s moving to “Dallas”?) Robert Wilonsky at The Dallas Observer also has this fun YouTube video of the new Pietra now Beck manse, which he is leasing for $20,000 a month. Over the weekend, I heard that Beck is leasing because he wants to test the waters in Vaquero and may ultimately build his own spread out there. He also plans to build a big radio/TV/production facility and “we’re gonna create some jobs with people who know how to create jobs”. Beck was not too keen on the “media” spilling the beans on his new abode, despite leasing under an assumed name (can you do that?) and confidentiality agreements. He’s worried that it will put his family in jeopardy, and to that I say, chill, Glenn: you’re living in Vaquero.
Or will he keep it as a second home? Is he going anywhere? The Dallas Morning News is reporting (I subscribe!) that Chuck Greenberg will be replaced as the managing general partner of the Texas Rangers and CEO of the club’s operating holding company. Expect the announcement later today. Something is apparently rotten in Denmark: a source told the Dallas Morning News that Greenberg left the Rangers’ spring training facility in Surprise, Arizona abruptly on Saturday, this during what was supposed to be a fun-filled, happy, joyous weekend for the partners. And oh dear: Greenberg did not show to a party he and Nolan Ryan were supposed to host on Sunday.
What are we going to do if we start seeing a New Orleans Saints flag flying high in Westlake? Seems NOLA has given their blessings to the Payton family over their move to Vaquero, which is good because Payton told a reporter last week he’s signed a lease-purchase agreement on Mark Teixeira’s house. Don’t be surprised if we get some more NOLA transplants — Bob Warren at the Times-Picayune just wrote the most comprehensive article I’ve seen yet on the area.
We don’t know why, but last fall the newlywed Jonas brother, Kevin, and his New Jersey-born wife, Danielle, put their Vaquero home on the market over there at 2000 Rock Dove Court. (Don’t tell us: The house was too close to Mom and Dad and the other Jonas brothers over there on Wisteria Way? Or maybe they just wanted to be in LA? We totally understand, Kev.) The 5,045-square-foot Westlake, Texas mansion was listed for $2.2 million. And here’s proof that our market just isn’t all that bad: a woman named Mary Skipton bought K2′s home on December 21, 2010 for a cool $2 million.
More North Texas real estate news. The coach of the New Orleans Saints is not leaving the Saints to join the Cowboys, but he is moving his family to Vaquero, in Westlake, from New Orleans, according to The Times-Picayune. Sean Peyton apparently has bought (or plans to buy) a home and plans to enroll his children in school in their new Texas neighborhood toote suite. According to ESPN, Payton became interested in Vaquero when he lived in nearby Southlake, during his tenure as an assistant coach under Bill Parcells with the Cowboys.
This is Adrian Beltre. Third baseman for the Texas Rangers. Born in the Dominican Republic. He is selling this California home, as I mentioned to you earlier in the week, and he and his adorable wife are house-hunting in — where else — Vaquero. (Update: My friend the RealEstalker, a.k.a. Mama, tells me that Bradbury, where Adrian’s Cali house is on the market for $19 million big ones, is one of the most expensive communities in the country. It is also surrounded by toilet bowls. If you are ever looking out there, take toilet paper.) But here, that agent- to- the- stars, Allie Beth Allman, has been toting the darling couple around town all week. Allie Beth, as you may recall, is the agent who found former President George and Laura Bush their home over on Daria Drive. Here’s one of the glorious homes the Beltres may have been gazing at in Southlake, but I hear they have their hearts set on Vaquero. Tons of inventory out there, like the Jonas Brother’s home. Or this one, one of my all time favorites, because the lines are so clean.
Teixeira must really love him some real estate. Here’s his “second” house in toney Vaquero, Texas about 25 minutes west of Dallas. Word is, it’s on the market when he’s off playing ball, off the market when he’s home. Asking last: $4,550,000 for the 8554 square foot home. Vaquero is where, of course, the Jonas brothers live, where Kevin Jonas is selling his starter home, and where many other movers and shakers are moving these days because it is so very private and chi chi. (The rich are not getting poorer, they are just hiding their wealth more. We are going to be showing you how and where right here on SecondShelters.)
