Dallas Home for Sale: 3 Blocks From George W. Bush for $6.9M

5107 Kelsey Road, Dallas, TXFormer President George W. Bush made news a little more than a year ago for buying a home in the wealthy Preston Hollow neighborhood in Dallas, Texas. Bush bought his home at 10141 Daria Place for a reported $2.1 million.

Now, the chance to live near the former president and his wife, Laura, is available for $6,950,000 at 5107 Kelsey Road. The home is about three blocks -- three very long blocks -- from the Bushes' home. Whether you'll be able to get past Secret Service agents and introduce yourself to your new neighbor is up to you.
The Bushes lived in the neighborhood in the 1990s before moving to the governor's mansion in Austin. The Preston Hollow neighborhood is where some of the wealthiest people in Texas live, including Texas Rangers' owner Tom Hicks, former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach and H. Ross Perot.

5107 Kelsey Road, Dallas, TxThe 10,805-square-foot house that's up for sale has five bedrooms, five baths, three half-baths and a Mediterranean stone exterior. It includes a master bedroom with sitting area and bar, a study, a computer room, a den with wet bar, a wine room, a theater on first floor, a game room, a card room, and a detached guest suite with courtyard.

Outside it boasts a veranda with a fireplace and outdoor kitchen. And there's no shortage of luxe details such as an elevator, four fireplaces, pool with spa, and four-car garage.

It looks more like a mansion than a home. Many rooms have intricate woodwork and the home theater looks comfortable enough to sit in for hours.

Similar homes in the neighborhood have an average sale price of $6,099,000, putting this home just slightly over the average for-sale price.
