It sold on July 25, 2016, snapped up by young designer Ashley Tripplehorn and her husband, Ward Hunt. Owned by Kenny Goss, former partner of pop singer George Michael and principal in the Goss-Michael Foundation, the 5,538-square-foot, four-bedroom, five-and-a-half bath home came to the market at just under $4 million. It closed at $2.9 after more than 507 days.
George lived in the home at 4449 Belfort when he and Kenny were together, throughout most of the early 2000’s. He died on Christmas Day at his long-time home in the historic village of Goring-on-Thames, one of several luxury homes he owned and left behind at the time of his passing.
Belfort was built in 1940, designed by well-known Dallas architect Harwood K. Smith with landscape by Blackland Prairie Design. The homes’ clean lines and sharp angles hint at minimalism with nods to federal, colonial and art deco styles.
