The Texas Rangers pulled off a blockbuster deal this week, acquiring Philadelphia Phillies ace Cole Hamels, who threw a no-hitter the last time he pitched. As excited as we are about this news as baseball fans, we’re more excited as Realtors. Hamels is going to need a place to live, and we’re here to help.

Hamels reportedly sold a five-bedroom home in Newtown Square, Pa., last year that was listed for $1.55 million. Based on that number of bedrooms and that price range, here are four houses that Hamels and his wife, Heidi, may want to see when they get to town. Bonus: All of these Preston Hollow-area properties are just minutes away from the homes of Adrian Beltre and Yu Darvish. Those long commutes to Arlington would be more bearable while carpooling, right?

11145 Lawnhaven


11145 Lawnhaven Road has a spacious patio that features two living areas, a dining area, and a fireplace. The master suite and a guest suite are downstairs, as is a study. Three bedroom suites upstairs are complemented by a playroom, a homework area, a media room, and a snack station. Justin Easterling is offering the home for $1,650,000.

9006 Rockbrook Drive is a unique custom home with an award-winning floor plan. There are 11-foot ceilings throughout the first floor, which includes a rare downstairs media room. Walls of glass in every room showcase the custom pool area. Rick Adams is offering the home for $1,500,000.

6615 Brookshire


6615 Brookshire has two bedrooms (the master and a guest suite) downstairs. There are three more bedrooms upstairs, plus a den and a bonus room that could be a fitness studio or a media room. Multiple rooms provide views of the beautifully landscaped pool. Julie Boren is offering the home for $1,225,000.

5425 Springmeadow


5425 Springmeadow Drive is marked by exquisite craftsmanship. From the French doors in the den, master, and breakfast room to the built-in shelves in the den and the dual master closets, attention to detail prevails. Debbie Sherrington is offering the home for $1,150,000.

Custom Home at Convenient Location Boasts Floor Plan That’s Truly Unique


9006_rockbrook-62


The five-bedroom home at 9006 Rockbrook Drive has a custom floor plan that is truly unique. Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate’s Rick Adams, who is offering the property at $1,425,000, will hold it open for prospective buyers from 2 to 5 p.m. on Suday.

One uncommon aspect of the home is that the grand curved staircase is not visible as soon as you enter the foyer. Placing it in the traditional spot would have distracted from the dramatic formal living room, which features a 16-foot barrel ceiling and a large window providing a view of the pool.

You have to walk down a short gallery, which is open to the formal dining room, to see the main staircase. It features handrails made of scrolled iron and wood, and the steps are finished in light emperador marble. The home’s luxury powder bath is underneath the stairs. The other five bathrooms are all part of bedroom suites.

Two of those bedroom suites, including the master, are on the first floor, where the ceilings are all at least 11 feet. The home’s one-vehicle garage has private access directly into the master suite’s walk-in closets. The second, two-vehicle garage leads to the utility room, which is set up for two washers and two dryers, and the other downstairs bedroom suite.

The roster of KitchenAid appliances in the gourmet kitchen includes two dishwashers, two ovens, two disposals, and a 48-inch-wide refrigerator. Other outstanding aspects of the kitchen include a huge pantry that’s 12 feet deep and a desk area with a pull-out keyboard tray. The kitchen is open to the breakfast nook and family room, which both have walls of window facing the pool.

Completing the first floor are a study and a media/multipurpose room. Upstairs are a fitness room above the two-vehicle garage, a game room with a wet bar at the top of the secondary staircase, a loft-style living room accessed from the main staircase, and three bedroom suites.
