Texas Rangers Buyer Heading for Home Near Jonas Brothers

If you've been following baseball, you probably know that Dallas billionaire Tom Hicks and his Hicks Sports Group is trying to sell the Texas Rangers baseball team. Hicks chose the lowest bidders, presumably because the deal allows him to hang onto some real estate near The Ballpark in Arlington, Texas. (Hey, the Super Bowl is around the corner.)

The buyers group led by Pittsburgh-based Chuck Greenberg, who's bringing in the cash, must be pretty darn confident that the sale will get the approval of the MLB even though the creditors are throwing a hissy fit. Why? Because Greenberg has a contract on a Westlake, Texas home in super elite and private Vaquero listed for $3.5 million. And he's buying it from a former Dallas Cowboy player.
Late last month, Greenberg put a contract on 2211 Vaquero Estates Blvd., owned by former Cowboy Tony Banks and listed for $3.5 million with Roxann Taylor and Associates realtors. Banks' home has been on the market for a while and the price recently was reduced.

Greenberg and his wife have three children, all in college, so they'll be empty-nesters in this 8,754-square-foot home that's a pop fly from the Wisteria Way home of the Jonas Brothers. Too bad they don't have any teenage girls.

If the contract goes through, here's what they'll get: A rich Mediterranean-style home with a knock-out veranda view of Vaquero's 17th and 18th fairways. (The Vaquero Club is world-class and sought by many golf pros.)

The home sits on a cul de sac and sports high-end finish-out amenities, like most Vaquero spreads: sweeping ceilings, huge formal rooms, multiple living areas, huge master suite with his-and-hers closets, spa waterfall bath and full coffee bar. There's also a fabulous kitchen with top-of-the-line gourmet appliances, an auxiliary/prep kitchen, wine cellar, game room with bar, microwave and drawer dishwasher, full media room, huge pool, and an amazing loggia complete with 42-inch flat-screen and outdoor kitchen. All this on more than an acre of land. Pittsburg has some fabulous homes and great topography, but 2211 Vaquero Estates Blvd. is totally worth the move, even if Greenberg ends up not owning the Rangers.
