Top-5 Friday: Love Sports? Think About Buying a Second Home Where The Magic Happens — Arlington, TX!
The Dallas-Fort Worth area is home to loads of great sports teams. You’ve got the Texas Rangers and the Dallas Cowboys in Arlington, the Dallas Mavericks in downtown Dallas, and there are tons of fantastic minor league baseball teams throughout the region. Of course, Cowboys Stadium hosts other fantastic events, like the NCAA Final Four basketball tourney, as well as the Cotton Bowl. Some musicians even play gigs at Cowboys Stadium, too!
Not Sure Sean Payton is Renewing His Lease on Mark Teixeira’s Vaquero House: Great Second Home Op in Westlake, Texas
It was about this time last year — well, February 2011 — that Sean Payton got everyone all flustered thinking he was maybe trying to get closer to Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys. Well, of course he wasn’t. He had other fish to fry. But Payton and his family did move to the uber exclusive Vaquero Club in Westake. As in the number one home to many PGA golfers, current and former Texas Rangers players and other celebrities. Payton, his wife Beth and kiddos hunkered down in the 8,554 square foot house owned by former Texas Rangers and current New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira. Built in 2005, the house has been on the market since April 2009 with an original list price of $5,750,000.
If you are looking for a 9,000 square foot plus second home in Texas that is a hop, skip and jump from D/FW with the added plus of no state income taxes, well, thank DeMarcus Ware. The Dallas Cowboys linebacker just plopped his home, Castleton Manor at 6900 Rockingham Court, on the market with a price tag of $2.198 milion. From the looks of it, Ware wants to move on up from Colleyville to fancier digs.
And why not? He’s the highest-paid, high-performing Dallas Cowboy ever, with a six-year, $78 million contract extension that has a $40 million guarantee. Life is good, but apparently not good enough in Colleyville. I would guess the All-Pro defensive end is eyeing larger digs in the Big D, possibly Strait Lane or Vaquero. He’s also one of the few in town who might could swing ownership of Champs D’Or, now reduced to $35 million!
Well. In light of the way the Cowboys TROUNCED the Redskins yesterday, my good friends over at Curbed Washington, D.C. have graciously posted some Dallas Cowboys real estate news (along with some Redskins pads, gotta be loyal) because they know that not only is our team WAY better than the ‘Skins, so is our dirt!
A little different from his Highland Park real estate, here is where Troy hangs in Coppell. Close to Cowboys Stadium and D/FW. Built in 1994, this 4134 story home has four bedrooms, four and a half baths, an attached garage and sets him back $17, 923.28 in taxes.
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.
Hopefully, he’s not going anywhere, maybe just closer to Cowboys Stadium? Jason Garrett just put his gorgeous Highland Park home on the market late Friday with none other than broker to the rich and famous Allie Beth Allman listing it. Asking: $1,950,000. The Ivy Leaguer (Princeton, Columbia) just got named head Cowboys coach January 6, the 8th head hocho in Cowboys history.
We all know that, when it comes to marketing, the world has changed. And when it comes to marketing real estate, we may as well be on a different planet. No longer are cute cards and glossy brochures and, some might add, print advertising in pretty magazines and newspapers, enough. You’ve got to go viral, go FaceBook, go Hollywood.
