A European-inspired residence on a resort-style 1.25 acre property in the desirable Vaquero Club has hit the market in Westlake, Texas for $8 million. The 12,665 square foot mansion was designed by architect Richard Drummond Davis and built in 2003 by Paul Kramer. Westlake, Texas mayor Laura Wheat purchased the property in 2006 and lived there for 12 years before listing it in 2018 for $5.3 million. The property dropped to $4.85 million in 2019 and was sold for an undisclosed amount on June 25, 2019 when it was auctioned by Concierge Auctions. CandysDirt.com dished exclusive details in June 2019 ahead of the auction. Laura Wheat exclusively told CandysDirt.com, “There is nothing else like 2006 Navasota Cove,” says Wheat. “It is a blend of European luxury and modern amenities on 1.25 acres, with mature trees, flowing fountains, and a resort style pool and gardens, designed by Elizabeth Smidt of Great Gardens. The grounds are truly magical. Once inside, guests find themselves in the soaring wood panelled rotunda that has taken many a breath away.”
The kitchen is a chef’s dream with La Cornue range, coffee maker, double oven, dual dishwashers and more. Additional features include elevator, wood crank-out windows and Crestron home automation. The master suite is a true retreat with cast stone fireplace in sitting room, wood floors, dramatic arched ceiling, balcony overlooking the golf course, and luxurious master bath. Meticulously landscaped gardens, sculptures and a sparkling pool create the perfect setting for outdoor living and entertaining. According to the listing, the current owners will sell unfurnished for $6.6 million. Annual taxes are estimated at $86,715. It’s on the market for $8 million with Barbara Pantuso of Keller Williams.
