Former Preston Hollow Home of Dallas Cowboy Anthony Henry Hits Market

Anthony Henry had a good career in the NFL, starting out with the Cleveland Browns back in 2001, and joined the Dallas Cowboys 2005 for four seasons as cornerback. There wasn’t any drama, no Pro Bowls or championships. Just a nice nine-year career in professional football.

From there, Henry has done a little investing, but also launched a career in the film business as a producer. Interestingly enough, Henry listed his Hollywood contemporary last April for $2.85 million, according to Neal Leitereg at the Los Angeles Times. This month, David Griffin Realtor Brandon Stewart has listed Henry’s former home at 17 Winding Lake, which is on the market for $1.75 million. Like his former Hollywood abode, it’s a clean-lined contemporary with sleek living areas and a floating staircase. Henry sold the home, a Quorum Builders design that sits in a gated subdivision near Preston and Forest, back in 2010.

It doesn’t take much to see why this beautiful property is our High Caliber Home of the Week. If you’re already falling for this cool contemporary, don’t hesitate — call Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans today to make your dream home a reality.

It’s easy to draw parallels between this home and Henry’s Hollywood abode. He definitely has a type!

“This stunning contemporary home defines excellence,” Stewart said. “Located in a private gated community, the home provides the ultimate in lock‐and‐leave luxury with the convenience of a low maintenance lifestyle for today’s sophisticated home owner.”

Stewart hits the nail on the head — this is a wonderfully secure smart home with plenty of walls for your art and collections. There are four bedrooms, four full and two half baths, four living areas, three fireplaces, and two dining areas inside this home’s more than 5,900 square feet. For such a tidy footprint, this home packs a punch.

You also get plenty of outdoor entertaining space and a beautiful pool and spa. HOA fees are $2,750 due semi-annually.

And while we love the floating staircase, note that this home is perfect for aging in place for the mobility-limited — it comes complete with an elevator.

“The gourmet kitchen features top-of-the-line appliances, two dishwashers, quartz countertops, a wine refrigerator, and an appliance garage,” Stewart notes.

We love the upgraded pendant fixtures both in the kitchen and over the spacious wet bar in the den, which is just off the kitchen. It’s the perfect open floorplan for today’s casual entertaining, with friends and family gravitating to kitchens and family rooms.

“The master bedroom includes LED colored cove lighting and a private fireplace to set the mood,” said Stewart. “Remote control electric shades allow the room to be totally darkened with the touch of a button.”

The sex appeal continues to the master bath, with a huge soaking tub that seemingly defies gravity, a floating double vanity, and beautiful tile throughout.

“A Crestron whole‐house automation system controls lights and music via the Crestron app on your smartphone or tablet, Stewart noted. “Likewise, an acoustically‐treated media room serves up entertainment via the built-in projector and screen. Don’t miss the powered curtains when it’s showtime!”

Stewart also says that the backyard is perfect for entertaining, with multiple covered seating areas offering great views of the elegant temperature-controlled pool. A mosquito nix system ensures that evenings outdoors by the pool are spent pest‐free, he said.

Sounds like it’s time to grab a cocktail and jump in!
