TOP TEN REAL ESTATE OFFERS
Professional football fans have an added incentive to purchase this Dallas property: the purchase comes with a dinner date with the NFL Hall of Famer, longtime Dallas Cowboys player and Dancing with the Stars winner Emmitt Smith. And he priced his house in honor of his former cowboys # 22 and listed the property for $ 2.2 million.
Many experts consider Mr. Smith to be the best running back in NFL history. He played for Dallas from 1990 to 2002 and then two seasons in Arizona. He announced his resignation three days before the 2005 Super Bowl and signed a new contract with the Dallas Cowboys. A day later, he retired to quit the NFL with the team he spent most of his career. He was inducted into both the College Football Hall of Fame and the NFL Hall of Fame.
The 10,806 square foot home was built for Mr. Smith in 1995 and is adjacent to a large wooded park and lake with private access. Family and guests come through a guarded driveway and can leave their car under a portico in bad weather. The two-story foyer with a hanging staircase made of wood and wrought iron is large enough to accommodate a grand piano. Throughout the house, all rooms are Texas-sized, including the five bedrooms, nine bathrooms, the kitchen / kitchen, two offices, two living rooms, two master suites (one on the main level and one upstairs), a media room with theater seating for 11, and a Playroom. Outside is a pool / spa and covered kitchen and dining area. There is also a generator for the whole house. The facility is negotiable.
