Flower Mound real-estate broker and Red Mare Wines owner Jim Striegel is auctioning off his luxury villa-style estate on the shores of Lake Grapevine in the Point Noble community.
The 8,100-square-foot five-bedroom, seven full and two-half bathroom estate features two sprawling acres of land that surrounds a man-made fish pond with a center fountain.
DeCaro Luxury Auctions has announced an absolute auction for 5800 Shorefront Lane in Flower Mound on April 9.
“The auction on April 9th presents an opportunity for buyers to purchase the home of their dreams with beautiful architectural accents, a pool and a huge indoor, outdoor patio that was created for year-round entertaining,” said Daniel DeCaro, CEO and founder of DeCaro Luxury Auctions.
“The estate also uses up to 50 percent less energy than a typical home of this caliber, as it was built with eco-friendly features, like enhanced insulation and tankless water heaters.”
The entrance to 5800 Shorefront Lane is marked by a grand archway with double iron-clad doors that lead to the home’s first floor, which features Italian marble flooring, cathedral ceilings and walnut wood beams.
Picture windows in the kitchen, dining and living room showcase views of the serene outdoor entertainment areas and the lush landscape, which is dotted with topiaries and water features.
A family room with a bar area and a second dining room are also located on the main level, and are separated by a double-sided fireplace, which abuts the home’s billiard and game room.
The home’s gourmet kitchen features walnut wood cabinets and an 11 foot by 9 foot center island with a granite counter top, two sinks and a breakfast bar with seating for four. Built in refrigerator and Wolfe appliances which include an eight-burner gas stove, topped with a pot-filling faucet.
A state of the art wine cellar on the lower-level was custom built by Striegel using his expertise as the owner of Red Mare Wines.
The climate-controlled wine cellar boasts bricked barreled ceiling, floor-to-ceiling shelving for 6,000 bottles, plus storage space for cases. A special tasting island in the cellar features a temperature controlled wine-refrigerator and additional storage for prized bottles and stemware.
The estate’s master bedroom features high tiered ceilings, wood floors and a bay window with a seating area that overlooks the property’s grounds. The master bath is equipped with an oversized jetted and soaking tub and his and hers vanity sinks. The home’s remaining four bedrooms also feature ensuite bathrooms.
At the back of the property is the home’s indoor/outdoor patio, which has retractable screens that open to the backyard and also provide insulation in colder months. The patio is fully equipped with an additional gourmet kitchen, a section for BBQ grilling, a dining area with seating for 16, a fireplace and a large flat-screen TV.
The estate’s backyard features a kidney-shaped in-ground pool with a waterfall, a large pergola with shaded seating areas and a fish pond with a fountain.
All of the custom furnishings throughout the home, including an armoire that belonged to Napoleon in the early 1800’s and several other antique bedframes, dressers and tables, are also available for purchase.
