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.

Two weeks ago we all wondered where the Garrett’s could be going.

To Maplewood, it seems. The Garretts apparently have a contract on a glorious circa 1999 Euro-villa with smooth-as-a-baby’s-butt limestone exteriors, large living and entertaining areas, wide wood planked floors, 11 foot ceilings down, gourmet kitchen with two of just about everything, breakfast room, den, loggia, pool, study, four bedrooms, four and a half baths, 6900 plus square feet, study, sitting room, two bedroom, two bath apartment over the 3 car rear garage, and yes, four fireplaces. Not really pricey, either: listed for $3,795,000.

What is it about guys, football and fireplaces?

Anyhow, the kids can walk to Armstrong. No word yet on any sales over on Lindenwood, which is a great house, so stay tuned.
