Well this is a surprise. We told you, as we were told back in late November, that Deion Sander’s palatial 29,000 square foot estate sold at the November 18 Concierge auction up at 1280 Preston Road in Prosper for under $4 million.
Turns out the property is still available.
“The buyer can’t perform,” says agent Jonathan Rosen with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty, but no fear: ” we are working with another buyer currently.”
Maybe someone shopping for Christmas? This happens: Deion’s signature estate is available with 9.5 ish acres (checking my last post to be sure… ) and there were another 24 acres as a sort of buffer that were/are available to an interested buyer.
Previously marketed for $21 million, for the house plus 109 acres, Sanders’ home and land was valued at just more than $11.7 million by the Collin County Central Appraisal District. The home has just about everything a professional athlete or the emperor of a small country could want, including a football field, tennis court, pools (one a lagoon-style), a 12-acre lake, basketball court, gym, barber shop, arcade, bowling alley, a guest house, and a huge theater/screening room, and sauna. There’s also an awards gallery, but the new owner could repurpose that as a wine tasting room or art gallery maybe? Who knows! The 29,000 square foot home contains ten bedrooms and ten bathrooms, a commercial-grade kitchen, and soaring two-story foyer. The master closet is the size of most people’s apartments, actually bigger, and there is a sunken sauna tub in the master bath. Don’t forget the turn-table floor in the foyer to the master bedroom.
Recall that Sanders sold off 82 acres to a company called Bloomfield Homes, Inc. out of Southlake, in September. According to their website. they are a pretty cool home builder and have won some major accolades: in 2014, Bloomfield Homes was ranked the 7th largest homebuilder in D/FW by Residential Strategies.
So looks like Bloomfield still owns a 29,000 square foot mansion and a round master bedroom bed. Asking is $12.0 million. Taxes are about $135,000 for 2013. Let’s see what Zillow has to say about this listing in the 75078 zip code:
Zillow predicts 75078 home values will increase 4.2% next year, compared to a 4.3% rise for Prosper as a whole. Among 75078 homes, this home is 3597.3% more expensive than the midpoint (median) home, and is priced 337.6% more per square foot.
