Nothing defined an era more than the 14-year run of the television series Dallas. The entire world was caught up in the complicated lives of the Ewing clan, and all we wanted to know was “Who shot J.R?” I remember traveling in London at the time, and the moment people found out I was from Dallas, that’s all they could talk about.

Nothing before or after the original series has created that sort of international interest. It cast our fair city in a brighter light and made everyone fall in love with the idea of “bigger is better.” Big cars, bigger hair and of course, the biggest houses. The infamous Dallas TV home of the Ewing clan is one of the biggest, one of the best, and it’s for sale. Allie Beth Allman has it listed for $12.95 million.

These photos appear to be lifted straight from Paulette Greene’s listing for 2504 Beacon Crest Drive. Should the Dallas Morning News have credited the source?

I was reading an article on DallasNews.com earlier today when I saw one of those teasers on the sidebar that said, “Check out this Plano mega-mansion featured on TNT’s reboot of ‘Dallas’.”

I had to click, of course, if not only because I am infatuated with the new “Dallas” cast, but I wanted to see if they had some cool photos outside of the ones you saw with your own eyes right here on CandysDirt.com.

Well, they were the same ones, folks. I was kind of bummed! I wanted to see new shots, glamorous people, lights, camera, and action! There wasn’t any of that, and you know what else was missing? A link back to the listing, or any type of credit, for that matter.

So, while The Dallas Morning News is capitalizing on the hits that kind of slideshow will bring in, Ebby agent Paulette Greene won’t see any new traffic from it.

What do you think? Should the News have provided a link, or credit at least?

 

Far from Southfork, plenty of Ewing family drama was shot at 2504 Beacon Crest in Plano's Willow Bend Country.

Tonight’s premiere of the TNT relaunch of Dallas will afford you a unique opportunity to preview the Plano home where the Ewing family double-cross one another.

According to Cody Baker of Ebby, Mary Jo Pope of the Paulette Greene Group has the listing where tons of scenes were shot. Why was the Willow Bend Country home chosen?

Rumor has it that this particular home was chosen over all other options for the filming of interior scenes because of its wide open spaces, beautiful decor and many amenities.

Pope, who was present for filming, said a family dinner scene was shot in the formal dining room, a scene featuring actors Patrick Duffy and Jesse Metcalf (Bobby and Christopher Ewing, respectively) was shot in the study, and the pre-wedding bridesmaid  scene was filmed in the downstairs guest suite.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that the relaunch of “Dallas” — TV show that was popular just about everywhere except Japan — will be on TNT come June 13. But if you have almost $4 million burning in your pocket and a hankering to own the home where J.R., Bobby, and the rest of the Ewing family had frequent screaming matches, drank themselves into oblivion, and sabotaged each other, this Willow Bend Country mansion is for you!

Seriously, this Plano home marketed by Ebby agent Paulette Greene is immaculate! Despite having a gusher in the backyard, there’s not a drop of oil anywhere at 2504 Beacon Crest Drive! The show’s fans will love checking out the digs where Larry Hagman and cast stepped foot, sat down, and poured themselves a Bourbon.

 

Here’s the rundown on the 1.36 acre property from Realtor.com:

The home itself, built in 2000, offers over 11,000-square-feet of living space, with six bedrooms and 9 bathrooms, and is adorned in luxe touches and finishes throughout. Not a master suite, but a master wing features its own fireplace and his and hers baths, while a pair of master bedrooms, one upstairs and one downstairs, can be found on the premises. In the backyard, a cabana and full outdoor kitchen look out over a massive diving pool and a pool house that leads to a sunken tennis court.

This could be the perfect house for Pilar, amiright? Any takers?
