The 25-acre estate of businessman and former Texas Rangers owner Tom Hicks in Dallas, Texas has hit the market for $US100 million.
First spotted on the Wall Street Journal, the property known as the Hicks Estate is in Dallas’ prestigious Preston Hollow neighbourhood and combined has a total of 35,000 square feet.
In addition to the main four-story mansion, the estate has a two-story guest house, three-story pool house, and caretaker’s home.
There’s also a country club-sized pool, formal gardens, a helipad, tennis courts, a gym, panic room, movie theatre, and 500-bottle wine storing room.
“This is the first time that the Hicks estate has been offered publicly through national real estate listing networks and marketed actively,” listing agent Allie Beth Allman, who sold the estate to Tom and Cinda Hicks in 1997, said in a press release for the home. “This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a new buyer — only the third owner in 77 years — to acquire this magnificent property.”
The Hicks Estate was originally listed for $US135 million back in 2013, but was unable to find a buyer. The home, which was built in 1938, has been completely renovated and expanded for the new owners.
According to Allman, Hicks and his wife are selling the estate now that their children have moved out. The couple are hoping to travel more and pursue other interests.
