Texas Retreat Overlooking Fort Worth's Picturesque Eagle Mountain Lake To Sell At Auction Through Concierge Auctions
Never before offered for sale, Mariposa del Lago will sell to the highest bidder on October 8th
Sep 4, 2015
FORT WORTH, Texas, Sept. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Lush grounds, rustic charm and breathtaking lake views merely scratch the surface when describing Concierge Auctions' newest offering - an impeccable Texas family retreat known as Mariposa del Lago, which will sell at auction without reserve on October 8th. Located within 30 minutes of downtown Fort Worth in a private and secluded cove on Eagle Mountain Lake, one of the most beautiful lakes in North Texas, the property will sell in cooperation with Kyle Crews and Daylon Pereira of Allie Beth Allman & Associates.
The sellers, John C. Goff, Founder of Crescent Real Estate Holdings, and his wife Cami, built the home as a place to enjoy with their children, grandchildren, friends and business guests. "We created a place where all of our children would want to come; the gathering place for holidays and the axis point of all major events," stated Cami. "It was not an easy decision to sell, as we've poured our hearts into Mariposa del Lago. Every detail was meticulously thought out, materials selected, and executed by one of us personally. But, we decided that the timing was right to pass the keys to the next family who will cherish this estate and create their own memories and traditions to last a lifetime, just as we have. Finding the right steward requires a unique process, and we are confident Concierge Auctions will provide that."
The name Mariposa del Lago, or "Butterfly of the Lake," is appropriate due to the monarch butterfly migration that annually frequents the grounds.
With magnificently lush landscaping and a stunning main estate, Mariposa del Lago, located at 7941 Summit Cove, was created by a 'who's who' of renowned Fort Worth and Dallas architects, builders and designers including Richard Drummond Davis, David Lewis and Architectural Digest Top 100 Designer Joseph Minton. The property offers a mix of contemporary design and rustic Texas charm, including Oklahoma river stone and Northwestern white cedar ceilings.
Two automatic privacy gates, which allow for separate entrance and exit, set the stage. The property includes a main residence and a guest cabana with a bunkroom below. The main home is comprised of more than 6,500 square feet with four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms. The main level offers a stunning great room with a double-sided, stacked-stone fireplace, a formal dining room with wet bar, a gourmet kitchen with breakfast area, a library with second stone fireplace, and a temperature-controlled wine room. The lower level includes three bedrooms and a recreation area and arcade complete with full bar, pool table, poker table, shuffleboard, darts, other casino games and more. The dedicated third level master suite overlooks the great room and also includes a sitting area, coffee bar, office, dressing room and infinity bathtub.
Large windows, French doors and balconies line the back of the estate, extending the indoors to thoughtfully-designed outdoor living spaces that span the lakefront property, which also includes a Moroccan-inspired, 1,500-square-foot-plus guest cabana with a lower-level bunk room. The two-story boat dock, with a gated entrance, offers another grill and bar for incredible entertaining and is perched directly above the lake. In addition to a luxurious pool with stone spa cascades, the estate also boasts a six-hole putting and pitching green, tennis court, basketball court, and playground for the children. An outdoor kitchen with a grill, barbeque pit and smoker, and pizza oven sits next to a beautiful dining balcony. There are numerous venues, both indoor and out, for dining and entertaining.
"This property has countless amenities and flawless design," stated Allie Beth Allman, Founder and CEO of Allie Beth Allman & Associates and one of the most recognized and acclaimed luxury real estate leaders in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. "This is the best opportunity there will ever be on Eagle Mountain Lake. It's one-of-a-kind."
Eagle Mountain Lake spans over 8,600 acres just 15 miles northwest of Fort Worth, the fifth largest city in the state of Texas. With 60 miles of shoreline, visitors and residents love to fish, water ski, wake board or just relax. A haven for sailing, the lake is home to a number of annual regattas and is a part of the Texas Yacht Racing circuit. Accordingly, several clubs devoted to boating and the nautical arts can be found surrounding the area, but the Forth Worth Boat Club is the oldest and most exclusive boating club in the area. Founded in 1929, now with an emphasis on sailing, club members have participated in races the world over and triumphed — including an Americas Cup win in 1971.
"Simply put, Mariposa del Lago is a must-see residence. The property takes lakeside luxury living to a whole new meaning thanks to its privacy, acreage and top-notch design," said Crews. "Having worked with Concierge Auctions in the past, including the recent sale of Timber Creek Ranch outside Dallas, I understand the value of the company's platform. I've seen first-hand the benefits they bring to the table, including global exposure. We're excited to collaborate again and achieve another success on auction day."
Concierge Auctions will host a preview event at the property from 4 to 7pm on September 17th. The property will be available for viewing daily from 1 to 4pm and by appointment. Brokers are protected and eligible for a 3% co-broker commission. See Auction Terms and Conditions for full details. For more information call 212.257.5018.
