Monday Morning Millionaire: Wanna Be Rhonda Aikman’s Neighbor? I’ve Got the House for You — Dallas Real Estate News

Published November 7, 2011 by Candy Evans

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’es 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”, syas the owner/seller. Great location: 6605 Mimosa 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 3-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 back yard 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…
