T. Boone Picken’s Most Romantic Home in Dallas Would Make a Great Empty Nest Texas Retreat. But No Windmills…

By Candy Evans | February 14, 2013 | Comments Off on T. Boone Picken’s Most Romantic Home in Dallas Would Make a Great Empty Nest Texas Retreat. But No Windmills…

T. Boone Pickens may be a legendary Texas oil and gas executive, and a huge force behind wind energy, but there are no windmills on his Preston Hollow estate in Dallas, Texas. There are gardens, sculpted and manicured French gardens that will make you think you are in Versailles so much that “mais oui” will roll right off your tongue! He is now selling his Dallas estate in the heart of Preston Hollow for $7 million. And it is not listed in MLS. The home was built in 1996, but then when T. Boone and his wife, Madeleine bought it in July, 2005 for about five million, it was redone to the max. And I do mean the max. From a four bedroom home with a master on the first floor, it was taken to a three bedroom home with an expanded second floor master. In fact, the new master bathroom is so large it features a writing desk — what a splendid idea! The new master closet is larger than most starter homes.

This angel looks all neat and traditional on the outside, but oh boy she is a sexy vamp on the inside! We love that the home was first built in 1939, hence it overflows with charm and character despite significant interior remodeling. In fact, once inside, you will see no evidence of 1939. It’s 2012, baby. Here’s another plus: this home belongs to a Realtor.
