Million dollar home of the week: 6605 Mimosa Lane in Dallas
Even at $1,450,000, it will not last.
This amazing house will put you two sweet doors down from Rhonda Aikman. Maybe your kids will get invited over to shoot hoops in their front yard – Troy has apparently outfitted his ex’s place with a top of the line basketball hoop. How nice! Maybe go borrow a cup of sugar! The story here is the owners love this home dearly, but he has just been transferred to Miami, where they are sure to find a sea of housing bargains. “I fell in love with this home because it is a far cry from the typical McMansion style you see around here, which I refer to as 'architectural vomit,'" says the owner/seller.
Great location: 6605 Mimosa Lane is on the honeypot part of the street, and besides the Aikman kids, guess who else used to live nearby? Mike Modano. It’s a Hill-Country-inspired, contemporary Austin Stone number that has been impeccably landscaped and maintained since the day it was born in 2006. She’s a spring chicken! Appraised at 6,005 square feet, the home feels much larger.
Custom-built and fully loaded: five bedrooms, 5.5 baths, game room, state-of-the-art media room, wood-paneled study, wine cellar, wet bar, and three-car garage. There are soaring, but not overpowering, 21-foot ceilings in the entry and family rooms, both with palatial window views. The kitchen has a Viking stove, requisite two dishwashers, warming drawer (did you know you can use these for warm towels like right after a massage?), custom cabinetry, gorgeous atypical granite. The backyard features a grill and cooking center and pool with water sheers and hot tub. In fact, the dining room overlooks this amazing waterfall.
Talk about storage, I double dare you to fill this house: butler’s pantry for silver, huge laundry room, attic, ginormous closets. I covet the master suite with the sitting room (would be my office), Jacuzzi tub, and huge walk-in. Custom silk draperies remain, owner’s loss, your gain, and hand-scraped hardwoods in formal rooms. Priced competitively at $1,450,000: You are buying for less than $250 a square foot — this home cannot be replicated at that price. Listed with Bernice Edelmen at Keller Williams Elite. Frankly, I do not think it will last.
