Real Estate Worth of TV
Got $13 million? Then you can have J.R. Ewing’s famous Dallas home.
The home that introduced Dallas to the world is now on the market. Located at 4800 Park Ln., the stately, three-story Georgian is best known as the home of the Ewing clan in the original Dallas television series.
Listed with Allie Beth Allman for $12.95 million, it’s bigger and better than ever after undergoing a complete overhaul.
“It’s almost impossible to find a house like this, with unbelievable history and the most gorgeous grounds in Dallas,” Allman says.
This house was as much a star of the show as J.R., Bobby, Sue Ellen, and Pam. Known back then as the Calder House, the home’s interior was used during that first season of filming, and it introduced the world to gracious Texas living standards.
The original 1939 façade has been kept intact, but the interior of the house has been redone. Guy Vance Brown served as the architect; Bill Manning of Manning, Snelling & McIlyar was the general contractor. Together they created a 10,341-square-foot home with five bedrooms, five bathrooms, and two powder baths.
The house has a classic, traditional elegance that permeates every room. Time-honored elements, from Venetian plaster walls and limestone floors to custom woodwork, were installed by master craftsmen.
Every creature comfort was taken into consideration as well. The home has a billiards room, library, wine room, and media room. A third-floor game room can be reached from the elevator or the suspended spiral staircase.
The home sits on just over four acres, in Sunnybrook Estates, and the grounds were landscaped by Michael Zerbach & Associates. Along with a creek view there is a pool, spa, tennis court, exercise building — yes, building — and something we all treasure: privacy.
