    Another nice home in north Dallas with great location. It’s the estate of Troy Aikman, Hall of Famer quarterback. With a double lot AND the name reputation behind the home, I think this estate could go for at least $15 Mil, not so sure about $24 Mil. The listing price was dropped right after it was put on the market; starting listing price was $27.5 Mil.

    This is a joke, right?

    This would not be $24 million in California or Palm Beach or Greenwich which are the only places I would even consider spending that much money on a house.
    For $24 million, I should have a pool that looks like a friggin oasis, not a standard, boring rectangular pool and tennis courts are cheap, a nice one can be built for about $50,000, so unless he has solid gold walls and floors….no.

    Okay, we’ve established that the price is ludicrous, so I’m gonna look past that for a second.

    I really really love the landscaping (I feel weird calling it “grounds” when there’s so relatively little of it). It’s very tastefully done. Initially I didn’t like the fact that the home is located on a corner, because it looked like the back yard privacy was going to be seriously lacking, but looking at the pics, the property seems to be pretty well shaded from view from Laurel St, which is good. Bottom line, though, is that there’s just not much space.

    I am really disappointed there’s no interior shots (yet) because I really like the exterior of this place…I’m really curious about what it looks like inside.

    Dear Daniel,

    I agree with you that the $24M asking is out of control but despite what you may think Highland Park is a very sophisticated and expensive area. You may not care for Dallas–neither do I–but there are tons of very rich and very cosmopolitan people.

    And p.s. $24M isn’t a “starter home” price in any of the places you mentioned. Although there are sales in excess of, $24M really is the high end of just about every market around the globe with the possible exception of London where $24 is more like the middle of the high end.

      Dear Eddie,

      I never said Highland Park was neither exclusive nor expensive. I just listed places that have historically been havens for the extremely rich. I actually really like a few homes in H.P., but in my opinion, $24 million would be better spent on another market. There is also no ocean, mountain or city view.

      I also have to disagree with your assessment of $24 million being the high-end of the market in the places I mentioned. Yes, the *average* price is no where near that figure, but dozens of $50 million+ properties can be found in each of the areas I mentioned.

      To make a long story short, if *I* had $24 million to blow on a house, I could blow it anywhere I wanted to. Texas would not be in my list of places to choose from.

    I love the babbling brook. I would pay big, no, make that HUGE money…like even $24 Million CLAMS for that. I wouldn’t have to worry about putting water out for the dog every morning.

    Only prob is that the yard is so tiny that rather than worrying about water, I would have to pooper scoop the yard all the time.

    Never mind.

      For 24 million you could hire a man to run around your house with a bowl of water for the dogs making babbling noises.

    I don’t want to see the inside of this home; the outside is quite forgetable enough. Babbling brook, or not, I’m sooo unimpressed 🙁

    The landscaping is amazing…one of the best I’ve seen on this website. Nice job, Troy…never realized he had such a ‘green thumb’
