(PRESUMED) BUYERS: George and Laura Bush
LOCATION: Daria Place, Dallas, TX
PRICE: Who knows?
SIZE: 8,501 square feet, 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms
YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Well children, it looks like our soon to be ex-President George Dubya Bush and soon to be former First Lady Laura have finally purchased a post-presidency residence (or two) in Preston Hollow, a swank suburb of Dallas. At least that's what Miss Candy Evans who pens the deelishus Dallas Dirt blog reported this morning. And Miss Candy would likely know children because she is unquestionably the best connected real estate gossip in all of Texas.
According to Miss Candy's report, it appears that the not very popular president and his lovely librarian-like wifey have purchased an 8,501 square foot house on a quiet cul-de-sac called Daria Place. The house in question includes 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms and was purchased by a gentleman named Robert A. McCleskey who happens to be the Bush's Midland, TX based accountant and one of Bushes best buddies. The house (picture top courtesy of Dallas Dirt) does not appear to have been on the open market.
Miss Candy also reports that the 4,684 square foot house immediately next door, listed at $1,600,000, has also went under contract last week. Hmm. Inneresting. Miss Candy posits that this second house would be perfect for housing the soon to be ex-president's Secret Service security detail.
An additional feature of these adjacent properties that would be of great benefit to the George Bushes is that they occupy large, private lots at the tail end of a small cul-de-sac which means egress and ingress can be closely monitored by the Secret Service and would possibly allow them to gate the entire street. Another bonus are the two large and lavish estates that back up to the two properties Miss Candy believes were bought by the Bushes, which obviously cuts down on the number of neighbors who might be inclined to let the paps pay them a few bucks to peep over the back fence in order to snap photos of Laura gardening and Dubya doing whatever it is he does.
So far, and not surprisingly, neither the Bushes real estate agent nor their spokes people are whispering a word about their possible purchases. However, Your Mama would bet our long bodied bitches Linda and Beverly and our mean ol' pussy cat Sugar that Miss Candy's deductive detective work is spot on. She usually is.
