Conservative commentator Glenn Beck wants to part ways with his sprawling Vaquero Club estate in North Texas. The famed political firebrand and former Fox News star has put his expansive mansion at 2224 Kingfisher Drive up for sale.
Asking price? $5.9 million.
With his credits as radio host, television host and producer, pundit and New York Times best-selling author, it’s safe to say Beck’s Westlake real estate (the North Texas Westlake not the more well known Austin Westlake neighborhood) is drawing plenty of attention.
The house isn’t clearly tied to Beck’s head-turning name, but he’s registered at 2224 Kingfisher in public records and the Tarrant County voter roll.
Beck talked about selling the mansion on his radio show, as first reported by The Daily Beast.
“I am putting my home up for sale because I fear this economy as we are headed for trouble,” Beck said on air. “And I don’t want to be sitting with a big huge house.”
Of course, Beck also seems to be having business troubles of his own. For starters, his multimedia company, Mercury Radio Arts, and his media network, TheBlaze, are reportedly undergoing another round of layoffs — after a previous round just last year.
During a recent CNN interview, Beck was questioned about his seemingly floundering network. He walked out of the interview.
Hopefully, leaving his house will go smoother.
Inside Glenn Beck’s House
Built in 2004, Beck’s 9,100-square-foot, six-bedroom, six-full bath and three-half bath mansion is located on the largest golf course lot in Vaquero, complete with its very own golf cart garage. Beck purchased the mansion in 2012. Every room apparently comes with a view.
It also comes with a backyard oasis. There are a series of cozy covered porches to lounge on, an outdoor living center, a fire pit and an open and covered patio. Not to mention the sparkling pool and spa gleaming next to the cabana for outdoor exercise and relaxation.
Inside, the custom-designed mansion is replete with sophisticated details and elegant touches. Quality craftsmanship and the finest materials define the home, from hand-cut stacked stone to French brown wide-plank hand-scraped floors and Ludowici Tile roof. The high ceilings and tall windows create an airy atmosphere.
Wood accents on the ceilings adds a rustic touch, along with the distinctive arched doorways.
The chef’s kitchen is fit for the most serious gourmand, with top-of-the-line appliances and products, and a vast butler’s pantry. It boasts extensive counter space by the stove, a kitchen island and a bar that is just one of two dining areas, perfect for a family breakfast. Crafted wood cabinetry is plentiful. Even the hood vent blends seamlessly with the backsplash and counter tops for a clean, sleek look.
The living area allows for a lot of flow and features a fireplace, as do several of the bedrooms.
The dazzling master suite includes a wood-finished tub tucked beneath a window in its own private enclave and a glass and tile shower.
It’s almost like the type of place you’d never really want to leave.
