Dirk Nowitzki has bought the Charles Wyly mansion at 5906 Deloache in the “Honeypot” of Preston Hollow.
While the estate was once listed for $8.25 million, pricing got way more realistic last year when Allie Beth Allman took it over. She was appointed by federal courts back in 2018 to dissolve the property to pay off Wyly’s creditors. The Wyly brothers — Charles and Sam (who had an epic home on Beverly Drive that was built in 1924 for Dallas businessman Fred Schoellkopf) were found guilty in 2014 of using Isle of Man off-shore accounts and trading to avoid paying taxes. The grand total bill between the Wylys? $1.1 billion.
The property was listed at $5,999,950. Sale proceeds to satisfy the family’s debt to the U.S. government. So thanks, Dirk!
Sources say Nowitzki picked up the estate for $5,375,000.
