Monday Morning Millionaire II: Life is a Fairytale in Waggoner Place Storybook Home

Published July 31, 2012 by Joanna England

Every girl dreams of having her own little private castle, where she can steal away the days and nights and live life like a prince or princess.

If you never outgrew that dream, this is the house for you! With wrought-iron finishes, shabby-chic details, cute little windows everywhere, and staircases where you can let your hair down while waiting for Prince Charming, 6340 Brookshire Drive in Waggoner place is the perfect home for a storybook lifestyle.

This five-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bath home is in an outstanding location for a family. You’re super close to some of the best private schools in the state as Ursuline Academy, St. Mark’s School of Texas, and Episcopal School of Dallas are relatively just a stone’s throw away.

To me, the main draw is the super-private master suite. You get two floors all to yourself, with an upstairs sitting room and little balcony for sipping your coffee in quiet, too. The master bath is beautiful, with a soaker tub that will have you relaxed and ready to slay your everyday dragons. And if you’re sneaking in after the ball past midnight, you have your own entrance, too!

The house, which is marketed by the super smart and clever Lydia Player, is listed at $1.25 million — a fair price for almost 6,000 square feet in a centrally located area. This is a great home for a downtown commuter, as you’re sandwiched between Preston and Hillcrest on the west and east, and Royal Lane and Walnut Hill on the north and south.

There’s plenty of great shopping nearby, and for families with young children, there are community organizations such as the Preston Hollow Early Childhood PTA. And with a backyard pool like that, you can expect your kids to invite half the neighborhood over, too!
