Who Bought Troy Aikman’s Lot in Dallas? And Is It A Second Home?
June 7, 2012 | | | Second Shelters
It is a second home — or lot — for now. 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? 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.
Conveniently, the Dallas Central Appraisal District now lists the Pratts as the latest owners of the land at 4419 Highland Drive, and appraised for tax purposes at $5,745,420 million. It includes a cabana, a deck and sport court and 39,239 square feet of dirt to build on, or a hefty Highland Park lot of 159 width by 258 depth.
And Troy Aikman right next door!
When Troy separated the lot, which he bought from Brian and Cheryl Potashnik for about $5 million in 2008, he lowered the price of his 10,000 plus square foot homestead to $14 million. If he did sell the lot for $5.7, which is the word, good deal: he was able to clear off his mortgage.

Who is Brian Pratt? He’s chairman, president and CEO of Dallas-based Primoris Services Corp, which appears to be a serious commercial infrastructure contractor in engineering and construction consultation and services, with some impressive clients. Oil field services perhaps? Business must be awesomely good. He and his wife live over on Shenandoah, in a $5,295,000 home they just bought in 2010 with Erin Mathews as their agent. Their son, Ken Pratt, a commercial realtor who would not speak with us, apparently now handles their real estate investments. The Shenandoah home is not yet listed in MLS, but when it does come on the market, it will likely be listed by Ken and be a humdinger: 8800 plus square feet, French provincial style built by Jeff Gilbert with absolutely positively everything, including generous room sizes, light-filled family room and kitchen, keeping room, mucho outdoor living areas with full exterior kitchen, fireplace, pool, master suite with sitting room, his and her baths and closets, elevator to all three floors, ideally located on a corner lot on a “discreet block in Highland Park” and conveniently close to the DCC.
I ask you: is any block in Highland Park discreet?
