The Butterfly Effect
Never before offered for sale, "Mariposa del Lago" will sell to the highest bidder on October 8th.
Located within 30 minutes of downtown Fort Worth in a private and secluded cove on Eagle Mountain Lake, one of the most beautiful lakes in North Texas, the property will sell in cooperation with Kyle Crews and Daylon Pereira of Allie Beth Allman & Associates. The sellers, John C. Goff, Founder of Crescent Real Estate Holdings, and his wife Cami, built the home as a place to enjoy with their children, grandchildren, friends and business guests.
«We created a place where all of our children would want to come; the gathering place for holidays and the axis point of all major events,» stated Cami. «It was not an easy decision to sell, as we’ve poured our hearts into Mariposa del Lago. Every detail was meticulously thought out, materials selected, and executed by one of us personally. But, we decided that the timing was right to pass the keys to the next family who will cherish this estate and create their own memories and traditions to last a lifetime, just as we have. Finding the right steward requires a unique process, and we are confident Concierge Auctions will provide that.»
The name Mariposa del Lago, or «Butterfly of the Lake,» is appropriate due to the monarch butterfly migration that annually frequents the grounds. With magnificently lush landscaping and a stunning main estate, Mariposa del Lago, located at 7941 Summit Cove, was created by a ‘who’s who’ of renowned Fort Worth and Dallas architects, builders and designers including Richard Drummond Davis, David Lewisand Architectural Digest Top 100 Designer Joseph Minton. The property offers a mix of contemporary design and rustic Texas charm, including Oklahoma river stone and Northwestern white cedar ceilings.
Two automatic privacy gates, which allow for separate entrance and exit, set the stage. The property includes a main residence and a guest cabana with a bunkroom below. The main home is comprised of more than 6,500 square feet with four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms. The main level offers a stunning great room with a double-sided, stacked-stone fireplace, a formal dining room with wet bar, a gourmet kitchen with breakfast area, a library with second stone fireplace, and a temperature-controlled wine room.
The lower level includes three bedrooms and a recreation area and arcade complete with full bar, pool table, poker table, shuffleboard, darts, other casino games and more. The dedicated third level master suite overlooks the great room and also includes a sitting area, coffee bar, office, dressing room and infinity bathtub.
«This property has countless amenities and flawless design,« stated Allie Beth Allman, Founder and CEO of Allie Beth Allman & Associates and one of the most recognized and acclaimed luxury real estate leaders in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. «This is the best opportunity there will ever be on Eagle Mountain Lake. It’s one-of-a-kind.» Eagle Mountain Lake spans over 8,600 acres just 15 miles northwest of Fort Worth, the fifth largest city in the state of Texas.
«Simply put, Mariposa del Lago is a must-see residence. The property takes lakeside luxury living to a whole new meaning thanks to its privacy, acreage and top-notch design,» said Crews. «Having worked with Concierge Auctions in the past, including the recent sale of Timber Creek Ranch outside Dallas, I understand the value of the company’s platform. I’ve seen first-hand the benefits they bring to the table, including global exposure. We’re excited to collaborate again and achieve another success on auction day.»
