What will he do next?
We are not talking about 89-year-old oil tycoon and philanthropist T. Boone Pickens. He has his famous, 65,000-square-foot West Texas ranch, Mesa Vista, on the market for $250 million. Who knows, could be sold by now.
Now he has sold his Preston Hollow mansion, listed with Dave Perry-Miller and Ryan Streiff. Selling price was $5 million. Word is that T. Boone is heading for a luxury condo.
The 8,906-square-foot Mediterranean-style estate with a LaCornue stove at 9434 Alva Ct. in Preston Hollow has been for sale since October of 2017 for almost $6 million ($5.9). Which is less than what he listed for previously, on March 1 of 2013, when he was divorcing his fourth wife and wanted to shed the house. Madeleine Pickens is a well-known animal rights’ activist and horse trainer who campaigns to protect America’s mustangs. She also decorated 9434 Alva Court.
Then the asking price was $7 million.
But then the two split, he met Toni Brinker, and the home was yanked off the market.
Alas — the women they come and go, only the real estate remains. T.Boone and Toni parted ways last June, and so he listed this home yet again.
The new owner is Dallas energy investment firm exec John G. Calvert and his wife, Suzanne, who paid a cool $5 million. The Calvert’s current home is on Desco Drive.
The gated Mediterranean estate sits on a .98 acre lot in the honeypot of old Preston Hollow. The meticulously maintained gardens and outdoor entertaining areas are thick with lush greenery, fountains, and statuary.
The home has three bedrooms, four full and three half baths, a study, pool cabana, warm and inviting gourmet kitchen, and guest quarters above the three -car garage. The house also has an exercise room, wood-paneled library and a huge walk-in closet that kept (at least) two wives happy.
