It’s My Mansion: $100,000 Homes. Here’s Granite, Gleaming Hardwoods, and a Great Dallas, Texas Yard for $109K
Readers have written with many requests — so many houses to tour — and we really try to honor them all, see them all. I’ve been a bit preoccupied lately with a family wedding — that’s me at our fabulous rehearsal dinner, below, at Eddie Deen’s. And I cannot say enough wonderful things about my son and daughter-in-law’s wedding or her wedding coordinator, Rebecca Hackl, Rebecca Hackl Events, who I call “J-Lo” because she is so darn adorable. But last week the ninth person offered up this suggestion — more of a challenge, really, especially to a new Monster-In-Law: Continue reading
I guess John and Teresa Amend are really getting serious about selling H.L. Hunt’s old estate on the banks of White Rock Lake. I have always adored this home, and maybe if I play the Lotto and they lower the price a few more times, I can actually buy it. Because buy it I would in a heartbeat. According to Allie Beth Allman’s website, which I visited to check on Troy Aikman’s home status, the price of 4009 West Lawther Drive had been changed to $24,900,000, that’s five million less than original asking at $29,500,000.
Curiously enough, Troy Aikman’s home is no longer on Allie Beth Allman’s web site. And when I checked MLS, it said CANCELLED. What does this mean?
A. Troy has taken his home off the market and needs a break from the exhausting sales process. It is so hard keeping one’s home perfect for every showing. Honestly, don’t people know we all have to live in a house — no, they don’t. This will also relieve him of the peskiness of people like me wanting to write about his house.
I learned today that while Erin Mathews did help Brian and Barbara Pratt acquire their home on Shenandoah, she was not the agent of record for their recent purchase of Troy Aikman’s lot over there on Highland. Who was? Their son, Ken Pratt, who also works through Allie Beth Allman. Called the young man but he would not/could not talk to me because of confidentiality clauses even with his parents! I have learned, though, he is THEE man to watch in the real estate biz. Ken is super duper sharp and manages, I’m told, the family’s real estate acquisitions in both residential and commercial. He’s also adorable, and if not hitched, I’m sure every young lass in town will be upping my page-views today, drooling over his clean-cut good looks.
