1280 N Preston Prosper DeionsJust when I think I’ve seen it all in a home, all the amazing homes I have been privileged to tour in North Texas (or anywhere) in the last 30 years, I walk through the gates of yet another amazing, loaded, luxurious, totally high-flying, so very over-the-top property — the former home of Deion Sanders.

Once again, I marvel at how and why people, especially rich people, build their homes as they do. I see how homes are such an extension of someone’s life, personality, background, education, career, and tastes.

With a personality as big as Deion’s, only a 30,000-plus-square foot estate could handle him.

This foreclosure in Glen Lakes is the perfect new home for Pilar Sanders.

Things are not looking good for Pilar Sanders. After their hearing yesterday, Deion Sanders won a restraining order that will keep Pilar 500 yards from their opulent Prosper mansion and that gigantic African statue. So, obviously, the soon-to-be ex-Mrs. Sanders will need a place to stay, right? We have just the thing, and it’s a deal, too!

Pilar will feel plenty at home over at 5 Crownwood Court in the Glen Lakes subdivision. It’s a foreclosure (as Candy tells me, it was owned by a podiatrist who couldn’t “foot the bill!” LOL!) so it’ll be affordable at just $849,900, which will help her when those lawyer bills start rolling in.

And it’s a great size, too, at 5,238 square feet with three bedrooms and 4-and-a-half baths. Sure, it needs a little work (the carpet has GOT TO GO! UGH!). That’s what the discount is for, right?

The master closet at 5 Crownwood Court has plenty of room.

But, there’s one thing Pilar won’t have to update, and that’s the wet bar with a wine fridge. A must for anyone going through a divorce, no? I mean, what’s worse after a long day in court? Your Chardonnay being the wrong temperature when you really need a drink.

The kitchen has plenty of bells and whistles, and there’s granite tile in the master bath. And it’s accessible: close to shopping and North Central Expressway. And there’s plenty of security and covered parking. Oh, and it’s also a plenty safe distance from Prosper. Way more than 500 feet.
