Local Businesses Team Up for $1.3M Grand Slam Home
Thanks to Chuck Cole of Cole Luxury Homes, the Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation will soon have even more funds to improve the lives of young area baseball fans with disabilities. Cole, a third-generation home builder, brought together a team of leaders from community-minded local businesses, including First National Bank of Southlake Town Square, Randy White Real Estate Services, Park Place Dealerships and Designs by K to deliver what he calls the Grand Slam Home — a 5,900-square-foot luxury residence. Proceeds from the sale of the home will go to the Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation.
Once completed, the $1.3 million, four bedroom, four-and-a-half bath Colleyville home will feature a wine gallery, library with fireplace and bar, reading nook, outdoor kitchen, master retreat, bonus room, sunken courtyard and four-car garage.
“We are in the business of building dream homes,” said Cole, founder and president of Cole Luxury Homes. “I get great joy out of watching someone’s dream come true, but I also have a tremendous desire to give back to our community. Building the Grand Slam Home and then donating all the proceeds to the Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation is a great way to achieve both.”
To mark the occasion, Texas Rangers All-Star reliever Joe Nathan and Ranger Hall of Famer Jim Sundberg joined Colleyville Mayor David Kelly, community leaders and Miracle League executives in a baseball-theme groundbreaking. Nathan caught the ceremonial first pitches from Dan Richter, a fire-balling Miracle League pitcher.
“For me, it’s easy,” Nathan said. “I live down the block. It’s an honor not only to welcome a new family to Colleyville and into this new home, but also to bring a lot of money to the foundation. The foundation does a lot for the DFW area, so it’s great to be a part of a worthy cause.” Mayor Kelly also expressed his admiration for the event.
“This is a great opportunity for the city of Colleyville to welcome a new resident and to partner with the Texas Rangers organization to help kids,” he said.
