Troy Aikman’s Highland Park home is officially off the market, as I told you back in September. Then, I thought it was because a buyer was circling, and selling it out of MLS could have kept the price a secret because of those pesky new MLS rules. But no, Allie Beth Allman told Candace Carlisle at the Dallas Business Journal that he wants it off the market.
Maybe she was looking at homes up north of LBJ, but the Dallas Morning News says she was arrested in Murphy and booked into the Collin County jail, hence this oh-so-attractive photo with the towel draped around her neck, a Collin County hallmark. Update 4:45pm: Rhonda is such a beautiful woman, I could not stand that photo of her, so I have removed it. She has been released on $269 bail, a very interesting number, after her car was towed. (I hope it wasn’t the Bentley.) Rhonda last year divorced famed quarterback Troy Aikman, whose lavish Highland Park home is still on the market but has some serious buyers circling. Rhonda, who lives in Preston Hollow, was also reportedly signed on to be a part of a Bravo TV reality show called The Real Housewives of Dallas. Too bad they haven’t started shooting yet, eh? Oh and I think we should all reserve judgement ’till we hear if she maybe took an Ambien or something. There but for the grace…
Remember when I told you that Troy Aikman sold off the Potashnik lot next to his home over there on Highland Drive? The one listed for $11,500,000 for only 109 days? I heard that he sold it to the Pratts: Brian and Barbara Pratt. Word on the street was they paid just about tax value ($5,493,000) and as I may have mentioned the lot was never ever in MLS.
Remember when I told you all last month that, at the suggestion of his agent Allie Beth Allman, Troy decided to sell off the full acre lot next to his Highland Drive home? Then I told you someone was hovering? Well, Alan Peppard is reporting that the lot sold and closed this week. Continue reading
Who’d have thunk it? Way back in January, we were gearing up for our very first Super Bowl ever, and everyone was trying to lease their home out to the highest bidding celebrity. Troy Aikman was on the cover of D Magazine, “The football god on marriage, loss, and how he lucked into broadcasting the biggest game on earth.” I had been hearing from early November on that Rhonda Aikamn bought a house in Preston Hollow. I thought, optimistically, it was maybe an investment prop? Then I heard more and confirmed the sad news: the Aikmans were splitting up. Troy did not put his house on the market until spring, listing it with Allie Beth Allman for $27.5 million. No wait, $24 million. Yes, it had been entered wrong in MLS. The home is still on the market, still at $24 million.
Second Shelters has learned, but not confirmed, where the Garretts MIGHT be moving. Let’s put it this way: they apparently wants a home with four fireplaces. Recall you heard here first that Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett put his house on the market about two weeks ago with none other than agent to the stars Allie Beth Allman. And not to brag, but like you heard here first that Rhonda Aikman bought a home in Preston Hollow and Troy quietly put his home on the market.
It is not in MLS, but I’ve heard that Troy is floating the idea of selling the family homestead on Highland Drive now that Rhonda has moved out and up to Preston Hollow. And lest you think he’s smoking something other than brisket on the patio in this market, let me tell you there have already been showings, several showings. Yes indeed. What a home and sale that would be. I wonder who the hip-pocket agent is… I’d guess Doris Jacobs, who was named ABA’s #1 Top Individual Producer. (She does it without a team!) And I wonder how much he would be asking? Let’s see, there are two lots,¬† a total of 1.20 acres approximately, that’s 63,034 square feet plus in Highland Park overlooking Turtle Creek? The home is over 11,000 square feet and the newly constructed cabana is over 1300. And you know the finish-out must be phenomenal.¬† I have the flu, it hurts my head to guess…
Over at D Mag’s Frontburner, Christine Perez says Troy was out dining with — people — and she asks, who are they? The last time I was at Eddie V’s I sat smack dab next to Miles Austin, who was oh so sweet. Seems like Troy-spotting is going to get as big as finding House Porn!
