Oh these sleepy summer months when everyone is out of town at their summer home, like in Santa Barbara. What a perfect time for someone to slip out of their “no-longer on the market home” at 4425 Highland Drive, and slip into another home in Highland Park?
I am told there were no less than 5 White Glove Storage & Delivery trucks in front of the house yesterday, and they took all his stuff to another home in Highland Park with the utmost care, my sources tell me. Now I had heard Troy was moving up to Preston Hollow. Guess he changed his mind and stayed in Highland Park?
Aikman’s house was once the most expensive residential real estate in North Texas at $24 million. Now, it’s peanuts what with Tom Hicks’ spread on the unofficial market for is it $135 million (did I type that right?). Recall that Aikman sold a parcel of his estate last May for an estimated $10 million to Brian and Barbara Pratt, who plan to build on the property, and in fact may have started. The lot was listed at $11,500,000 for only 109 days. The lot was never ever in MLS, but I think the sales price is close to ten million. 4419 Highland Drive includes a cabana, a deck and sport court and 39,239 square feet of dirt to build on, a hefty Highland Park lot of 159 width by 258 depth.
History of 4425 Highland: In February of 2009, Troy bought this lot from from Brian and Cheryl Potashnik for about $5 to $8 million. When he sold the lot last May, he lowered the price of his 10,000 plus square foot homestead to $14 million.
Brian Pratt is chairman, president and CEO of Dallas-based Primoris Services Corp, which appears to be a serious commercial infrastructure contractor in engineering and construction consultation and services, with some impressive clients. Oil field services perhaps?
