1600 Nelson ext

 This great Las Colinas estate was originally built and owned by the great Hershel Walker. It hits MLS on Tuesday with Coldwell Banker. Not only does it have a fabulous lineage, and FOUR (count them!) powder rooms, it sits on the Four Seasons golf course, Cottonwood Valley Hole 16. I know, too bad it’s not Hole FOUR. But it’s four times four! And Dr. Phil is ONE of your neighbors! This estate is located in the chi chi private estates of Las Colinas’ Cottonwood Valley. And you know who lives nearby whilst Mark Molthan is building his home in Glen Abbey: Tony Romo!1600 nelson ext 2

And you will definitely be toasty come fall with FOUR fireplaces. The other thing I like about this home is that the media room is downstairs, something you don’t often get in Park Cities or even Preston Hollow. Those second story media rooms, despite the best sound insulation, can get noisy!

You’ve got a dramatic marbled entrance with a sky-blue domed ceiling and dramatic, Alexis Carrington spilt staircase. There are at least three glam entertaining areas. There is also a huge office, a huge kitchen and yes that range has 6 burners, not 4. The master has a lounging area (you don’t “sit” in the master, you lounge) plus a fireplace, a magnificent spa bath (check out that tub and columns! Wow how Greek!) and an exercise room. Of course there are the his and her’s probably even an “its” vanity as well,  a wet bar with fridge, and separate huge closets. I mean, what man wants to be faced with all the money his wife has blown on shoes on a daily basis? Separate closets are a must in our next house. Every time my husband walks past my shoe wall I think his chest tightens.

But once you do get up there, there are two more en suite bedrooms and a playroom.

A note about the room in this house: all super-sized. Like the master is 32 by 21 feet!

There are FOUR bedrooms, and get this: FOUR powder rooms. The other thing I really like is two 2-car garages, so you can effectively house and protect FOUR lovely autos from the Texas sun.guest 2

I’m telling you: walk into home in Frisco less than 9,000 square feet, you are walking into a dressing room!

Asking price tomorrow will be $3.250 million and get this: the owner is selling off all the furnishings and art! Listed with James Douglas Pielsticker of Coldwell Banker Previews International.
