The rolling hills and mature trees that characterize the Vaquero Estates make the development seem as if it’s nestled in the country rather than the middle of two major cities. Perhaps that’s why a home in this gated golf community is so coveted by discerning business executives, celebrities and professional athletes. The French Provencal estate located at 2252 King Fisher Drive (2252KingFisherDrive.com), is the epitome of laid-back luxury, and is offered for $5,750,000 by J.L. Forke and Jennifer Shindler of Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate.
“The home sits on 3.8 acres and can’t be seen from the street,” J.L. Forke says. “A gated, winding drive meanders through roses and mature trees. With native grasses, wildflower fields and perennial gardens planted with 2,500 tulips and daffodils, exploring the grounds feels like a day trip to the wine country.”
The sellers worked with architect and builder Aaron Angle for two years to curate this timeless masterpiece. Inspired by homes in Southern France, it is adorned with 200-year-old French antique tile floors and five artisan-crafted fireplaces. Within its 10,572 square-foot interior are four living areas, five bedrooms, five full baths, media room and a five-car garage. An elevator accesses the underground wine grotto with a copper bar, fireplace and a lounge perfect for after-dinner gatherings.
“Residents will also enjoy relaxing and entertaining outdoors,” Jennifer Shindler says. “The outdoor living room and kitchen features a fireplace along with views of the resort-style pool, terrace, huge lawn with Bocce Ball court, and more.”
Vaquero has a 24-hour guarded gate and a Tom Fazio-designed golf course and club that offers dining, a spa and gym, pool and fishing lake.
Parents have their choice of Keller ISD or the public charter school Westlake Academy, an International Baccalaureate World School serving K-12 students. Children living in Westlake who wish to attend the academy are granted automatic admission, bypassing a waiting list of nearly 2,000 students vying for one of the highly coveted spots.
