Westlake’s Vaquero: Great Place to Raise a Family
August 11th, 2014 | by Michelle
Built around a Tom Fazio-designed golf course, the vibrant Vaquero community has become home to many business executives and professionals who enjoy the proximity to the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and the convenience of being 30 minutes from downtown Fort Worth.
With a 24-hour attended entrance, Vaquero is a great place to raise a family. Westlake offers many opportunities for children, especially the chance to attend the nationally ranked K-12 Westlake Academy, known for its International Baccalaureate program.
Children enjoy the recreational activities of the Vaquero Kids Club, from movies and games to scavenger hunts and crafts. Young golfers can work on their game, while adults play a round on the challenging course, relax at the day spa, tone up at the fitness center or jog and bike on the sidewalks and trails.
On a large lot at the end of a cul-de-sac, a two-story, four-bedroom home at 2008 Nighthawk Court features vaulted ceilings with exposed beam, richly stained concrete and new hardwood flooring. Overlooking the large backyard, a sitting area under a covered patio has a grill and fireplace only a few steps away from a saltwater pool and attached spa.
This traditional home features an open floor plan with a well-equipped kitchen that is open to the family room and casual dining. The nearby office features a fireplace and pocket doors for privacy.
Upstairs is a large master suite with vaulted ceilings and a chandelier. A private bath has an air tub set in an alcove with separate walk-in closets and a hidden room for exercise or storage.
The 4,413-square-foot home is being offered for $1,495,000.
