I have to run out the door, so I am unabashedly plagiarizing from Ebby’s blog. I’ll just tell you this up front. Tonight is the fourth episode of TNT’s new Dallas series,and I love it. So does the rest of the world; the reviews have been fantastic.

And Jo told you that  2504 Beacon Crest Drive in Plano, Paulette Greene’s listing, is the home of the infamous Southfork Ranch in the pilot episode. You know, the one where what’s her name got the cookbook from Anne.

(Note: I do not like the name “Anne”. I like “Ann”.)

Well, another wonderful Dallas home that we have written up, that in fact belongs to some dear friends,  has already made a peep in some scenes. That’s 4130 Cochran Chapel in Bluffview  – listed for sale by Patricia Massey of Dave Perry-Miller & Associates for $6.9 million.

The house is to-die-for, as we told you, and also reduced for sale. Wouldn’t you like to own a home that is regularly sought after by talent scouts? As I may have told you, I think they used Cochran Chapel in “GCB” as well, R.I.P. And they are paying anywhere from $1500 to $3000 PER DAY to shoot at these homes. Seems to me you could cover at least a few mortgage payments with that kind of booty.

Ebby says you can see the home’s debut from the third episode of Dallas here. And this fabulous home will make more cameo appearances in upcoming episodes. 

Now I’m just dang copying: “Curious to see what it takes to film a television show?  Check out the behind the scenes photos of the filming at 4130 Cochran Chapel at the Ebby Halliday Facebook Page.”

Thanks Cody! Want a by-line?


Jo, you’ve got a great eye, and our readers are 100% correct: this home WAS featured in D Home, written by my friend and former great editor, Jennifer Dodd. Also, the owners of this home have been dear friends since residency days. So fabulous, the home has also been used for many a TV shoot, and I THINK (don’t quote me) that David told me when we last chatted over the holidays that it was used in filming GCB (Good Christian Bitches, R.I.P.). The story is completely true. The Waldreps owned a lot down the street from us on Northaven where this home is now listed with Allie Beth Allman for lease, and they found Cochran Chapel and let go of the plans to build on Northaven. Homes have a way of just calling you, sometimes. This one turned out to be an AMAZING remodel by Guy Courtney of Wilson & Associates. The home listed in MLS last spring at $7,999,999 then reduced to $7,499,900. Today’s price is $6,900,000.
