Friday Five Hundred: Edelweiss, Oh Edelweiss Roger Staubach Lived Here

Published December 16, 2011 by Candy Evans

Claim to fame: here’s how great this neighborhood is. Guess who used to live here? Who, in fact, raised his kiddos here — not in this house, but on this cul de sac? Roger and Marianne Staubach, that’s who.  I love this little nook just north of LBJ — yes, it’s north of the Big O and you are creeping dangerously near to the 972 world — kidding! This is a great location, because you are still close enough in to make running everywhere a snap, yet you can get some great property deals. Take this beauty. Can you tell it was built in 1977 and maybe needs a little work? (Who deosn’t?) But look what you get as far as bones: 4255 square feet, three bedrooms, two and a half baths, half a lush, leafy green acre with low maintenace — no grass in the backyard, which will keep your water bills down when this rationing deal kicks in. And you get a nice deck spa. This home is very woodsy a la late 70′s, maybe too woodsy, but decks can be replaced and then you can create the perfect environment. Vison, people, have vision: 6906 Edelweiss is priced at $499,000 for cripes sakes and the sellers are serious. As in, VERY serious! Linda Vallala with Virginia Cook.
