Hey You, we’re not in L.A. Baby. This will be the First Time you’ve thought to yourself “This is What I Go to School For — a mansion in Westlake’s exclusive Vaquero neighborhood owned by those sibling heartthrobs, the Jonas Brothers.”

That’s what I thought, and it’s Got Me Going Crazy.

We couldn’t Take a Breath, so we had to Make it Right and tell you all that this amazing home will have you screaming “Hello Beautiful!” So we included this incredible estate in our countdown to the grand opening of the Ebby Halliday office in Southlake, which is tomorrow, not in the Year 3000.

The home that housed these heartthrobs in Vaquero is now on the market.

Ebby's Place Rendering

What a stellar 103rd birthday gift! Ebby Halliday Companies announced today that the new YW Women’s Center on Inwood Road between Maple and Denton Drive will be “Ebby’s Place,” named after none other than Dallas’ grand dame of real estate, Ebby Halliday herself.

“Ebby is just delighted that the YW has chosen to put her name on this building,” said Ebby Halliday Companies CEO Mary Frances Burleson said in a news release. “What an honor to know that this center will become a welcoming place where women can go to begin transformative changes that will make life better for them and their families.”

The $7.3 million center is scheduled to open this fall after an extensive renovation. Ebby’s Place will have programming and resources to help women to overcome obstacles and become self-sufficient. Empowering women will be the overall goal of the two-story, 50,000-square-foot facility, providing financial literacy, small business and entrepreneurship information, as well as education regarding childbirth, parenting, nutrition, and wellness.

The building is situated next to the Inwood Road DART Rail station in the Dallas Medical District, and serve the more than 286,000 women and girls battling poverty in Dallas County.

“The stats are heartbreaking,” said YW CEO Jennifer M. Ware. “Here in Dallas County one in three single-female-led households live below the federal poverty line. The mission of Ebby’s Place is to begin changing those stats by helping women to gain financial independence.”

Ebby turns 103 on Sunday, and we think this is the most amazing gift that will encourage thousands of Dallas women to beat the odds and inspire them to succeed!

Take a virtual tour of the sleek, beautiful building in the video below. You’ll adore the fantastic mural of vintage Ebby photos, a shout-out to one of the most amazing women Dallas has the privilege of calling one of its own.
