A former household of legendary Dallas Cowboys mentor Tom Landry and his spouse Alicia, found in close proximity to the moneyed intersection of Bluffview and Preston Hollow, is on the current market.

&#13
The house was built in 1952 and is at the close of a little, greatly wooded, secluded cul de sac off Inwood Highway. It has 5,408 square feet, and is 1-and-a-50 percent tales, with a lessen stage that appears to be like out above an intensely verdant backdrop that attributes a creek with a footbridge, wildlife, and masses of privacy.

&#13
Situated at 5336 Rock Cliff Place, the household has 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, and a swanky pool, and sits on 1.72 acres. The asking selling price is $2,999,000.

&#13
Initially posted by Men and women Newspapers, the listing is by Allie Beth Allman, which describes the house as “Land / Tons for Sale.” Which means, they suppose customers want it for the land, not the home.

&#13
The agency hosted an open up residence on June 13, so we went in hopes of spotting a pink-tiled bathroom or two, but small ’50s kitsch could be located.

&#13
Rather it has a type of understated modesty for which Landry was recognised, like a utilitarian kitchen, “regular” sizing bathrooms, and cozy bedrooms — the class of non-excess.

&#13
That could truly make a much better situation for renovating the home, which overlooks the Straight Branch creek, an extension of Bachman Lake. The total back of the dwelling is made up of flooring-to-ceiling glass, inserting the focus on the pastoral placing.

&#13
The assets is dense with experienced trees, some ringed with climbing vines for a kind of woodland fairy tale vibe, with a pair of treehouses and a footbridge that crosses in excess of the creek. Some of that can be seen in this video.

For the duration of our pay a visit to, we saw an lovable four-legged critter — a baby hog, maybe? — scuttle into the brush. The area was normally so quiet, the final luxurious.

&#13
Inside of, the home had an extended ranch-type layout, with a hallway across the center, with expansive spaces for the dining home and relatives area to the remaining, and bedrooms clustered to the ideal.

&#13
The lessen amount consisted of a massive bed room and en suite toilet with its possess different entrance, but it could also be reached by means of a mystery stairway of sorts, available as a result of a closet in just one of the bedrooms.

&#13
When the Landrys purchased the land, they bought a few parcels, both equally to warranty privateness and to make sure that the house would continue to be eco-friendly. Tom Landry died in 2000, and Alicia Landry died in January 2021.

&#13
It can be in close proximity to-difficult to come across an undeveloped oasis of mother nature, remaining to its personal machine, like this in the middle of North Dallas. But how lots of masters of the universe who can find the money for such a assets have the self-handle to depart the room alone?

&#13
There’ve been no shortage of Landry households that have been offered in the latest many years, which include his initial ranch-design and style property at 4510 Hallmark in Dallas in 2015 (and then once again in 2017), lakefront property in Spicewood in 2016, his golfing-system getaway in The Hills in 2019, and his Hill Place hideaway in Austin in 2019.
