Daria Drive, a dead-end street that leads to Daria Place, where the President George Bush and Laura Bush will soon transition from first family to private citizens in just over a week.

In a News 8 interview at the White House Monday, both said they're looking forward to living in the house they just bought in Dallas.

About an 8,500-square-foot ranch house, will be gated. Access will be limited to residents and their guests, according to a unanimous vote by the council.

Mrs. Bush calls the home on Daria Place, a cul-de-sac in North Dallas, the perfect house.

It's on a pretty quiet street, and I think the set up of it - the actual floor plan of it - is nice for empty nesters, she said.

On Wednesday, the Dallas City Council will likely approve installing a gate on Daria Drive to control traffic. The gate will be paid for by a trust run by the Bush's accountant.

Once the gate is up, Dallas police will provide around the clock security. Where a week before after a Dallas police officer was shot down at a rundown Oak Cliff apartment complex, the Dallas City Council passed a strict new ordinance Wednesday targeting apartment owners and operators who fail to control crime on their property.
