Tom Landry Lived Here
Score a piece of Dallas Cowboys history with the house that Tom Landry built
If you are like many Texans, you love the Cowboys. Now you have the chance to be one of only three owners to live in a home that was built specifically for Tom Landry, the football team's head coach for 29 consecutive seasons.
Located at at 4510 Hallmark Dr., only blocks from the Hockaday School, this 1962 traditional in Dallas' North Highlands Estates has four bedrooms and three bathrooms. It reflects the unassuming nature of the beloved coach, a quiet man who was unfazed by the hype caused by his team. This abode is elegant but not over-the-top.
The coach and his wife, Alicia, raised their kids here, and the 4,000-square-foot home has plenty of room for you to do the same. The open floorplan looks even more spacious with the addition of large windows overlooking a lush landscape that is perfect for, well, throwing the pigskin. The right owner is sure to love the rear patio with a spectacular skylight to enjoy a beautiful Texas afternoon.
The traditional design has been maintained, with the exception of a more modern kitchen, updated by the Ed Jarrett Company. There are the expected stainless steel appliances, granite counters and hardwood floors, but the custom cabinetry is the jaw-dropper. So much storage potential!
All the bedrooms are large, but the master suite is so expansive that it has a sitting area. One can assume Landry spent many a contemplative night in his bedroom rocking chair.
The master bath is also big enough for a couple to get ready at the same time, with a separate shower and tub, double vanities, and three closets. And just like the kitchen, the ample storage space is a major score.
The price for a piece of Dallas Cowboys history is $795,000. The home is listed with agents Kathy Myers and Lacy Schultz of Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate.
