Newsweek Goes House-Hunting, So Laura Bush Doesn't Have To
View Larger Map
Newsweek's "web exclusive" about George and Laura Bush's house-hunting in Dallas just went online. A highlight among many:
Agents say that when Mrs. Bush checks out a listing, the agent who has the listing is asked to vacate the premises, and soon afterward a big black Suburban pulls up to the door.
The story breaks down George and Laura's choices to four parts of town: Highland Park, University Park, Preston Hollow or Bluffview, all of which are, like, totally surprising! Alas, the story's author, Daniel McGinn, who wrote House Lust: America's Obsession With Our Homes and clearly digs Dallas Dirt, is really hot on this house at 5140 Seneca Drive in Bluffview, which is pictured above.
But if that doesn't work out:
Dave Perry-Miller, a Dallas broker with an office in Preston Center who specializes in upscale properties, says he has two properties in the $3 million to $6 million range that aren't listed on the open market but would be quite suitable for the Bushes.
