Forke, Shindler’s Vaquero Club Listing is a Trip to Wine Country

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 (, 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.

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.

Exquisite Estate in Exclusive Vaquero Boasts Clean, Museum-Quality Design


If you’re looking for a luxurious home in an exclusive location, then you owe it to yourself to tour 2104 Cedar Elm Terrace in Vaquero, a gated community 10 minutes northwest of Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. The five-bedroom French Moderne home is being offered for $3,450,000 by Madeline Jobst and Ralph Randall of Dave Perry-Miller & Associates’ Highland Park office.

The sellers had their dream home designed by Three Living Architecture and built by CEB Construction, and the team of top-flight professionals spared no expense. The stucco exterior, the museum-finish walls, the sterling hardware, the Lueders limestone and espresso-plank floors, and the Bisazza bathroom tiles all contribute to the home’s crisp, clean design.






Four of the 7,320-square-foot home’s five bedrooms are upstairs; the fifth is in the attached “casita,” or guest quarters. The very large master bedroom features a private terrace, a huge master bath with his and hers vanities and white Carrara marble throughout, and an onyx wall around the fireplace.





That fireplace is one of four in the house; the others are in the living room, the dining room, and the library. There’s even a fireplace outside, in the cabana that overlooks the spa and saltwater pool. Other exterior amenities include three courtyards, a side yard for children, and an outdoor living area right outside the living room.





The kitchen boasts top-of-the-line Viking appliances, a beautiful island crafted in white Carrara marble, and a quaint breakfast area with views of the gorgeous yard and pool. There’s also a wine closet that can hold enough bottles for years’ worth of entertaining.




The property occupies two-thirds of an acre in Vaquero, where neighborhood entrances are guarded 24 hours a day. But this property provides even more privacy thanks to the tall hedges around the entire house. Students are eligible to attend the prestigious Westlake Academy charter school.

Vaquero residents can purchase memberships to the Vaquero Club, which includes a tennis center, a day spa, a kids club, a fishing dock and a grill that offers in-home catering, delivery of a la carte menu items and grocery services. Members also enjoy access to a private golf course designed by Tom Fazio. From the second floor of 2104 Cedar Elm Terrace, you can enjoy views of the course’s fourth hole.
