Jonas Brothers House

One of the most popular teenaged groups of the 2000s, the Jonas Brothers crafted hook-filled power pop anthems in the vein of McFly, Hanson, and the Modern Lovers. The young New Jersey natives (while readying their 2006 debut, brothers Joseph, Kevin, and Nicholas Jonas topped out at 16, 17, and 13, respectively) were reared in the city of Wyckoff under the tutelage of musical parents. Nicholas showed a particular flair for singing; by the age of six, he'd already begun a modest career as a Broadway performer.

The young vocalist also took an interest in songwriting, even co-writing a Christmas tune in 2002 alongside his father. Several years later, his soulful voice had wowed enough executives at Daylight/Columbia Records to warrant a solo album, and Nicholas began writing original material with help from his two brothers. The siblings' songs impressed the president of Columbia, who ultimately signed the trio in 2005.

The Jonas Brothers' full-length debut, It's About Time, was released in August 2006. Featuring the songwriting talents of Desmond Child and Fountains of Wayne's Adam Schlesinger, the album peaked at number 91 on the Billboard charts and earned the siblings a modest audience, particularly among fans of Radio Disney. Nevertheless, the Jonas Brothers were dropped from Columbia's roster in early 2007.

They bounced back by signing with Hollywood Records, a Disney-owned label that helped the group exponentially expand its fan base. An eponymous sophomore album, Jonas Brothers, arrived in August 2007, supported by a number of Jonas Brothers appearances on the Disney Channel's various programs. The band also toured in support of the record, selling out shows coast to coast including a stop at the Gibson Amphitheater in Los Angeles that was the fastest sold-out show in the venue's history.

The Jonas Brothers reportedly bought a house in a Dallas Fort Worth suburb and some young neighbors sound thrilled.

Located in the upscale gated community of Vaquero Club, the 7360 square foot home overlooks the 6th and 7th fairways of the Tom Fazio designed golf course.

Tarrant County records obtained by The Dallas Morning News indicate that the three band members granted power of attorney to their mother, Denise Jonas, to buy a $2.8 million, six-bedroom house in Vaquero, a gated community in the suburb of Westlake. The documents were signed June 12.

A real estate agent confirmed the house’s sale but said the contract prevented her from commenting further. A publicist for the band, which began a nationwide tour last month, declined to comment.

The exclusive neighborhood already includes major leaguer Mark Teixeira, former star quarterbacks Drew Bledsoe and Terry Bradshaw, not to mention several pro golfers.

The singing trio won’t be the only famous faces in hood-professional golfer Todd Hamilton and major leaguer Mark Teixeira also have homes in the community.

A high stone fence surrounds Vaquero and cars enter through manned gates. And residents on Wisteria Way are used to celebrity neighbors. Ben Crane and Brandt Jobe live in the upscale community, former Cowboy Drew Bledsoe and Hall of Fame quarterback Terry Bradshaw. Stars captain Brenden Morrow and PGA Tour player Corey Pavin own property as part of memberships at the Vaquero Club.

Here's where the boys are hanging when they're not at Barneys.
