2340 Victory Park LaneUPDATE: I hate how slow DCAD is. Thank God for my sources. So Don Carter sold this unit to a real estate investor who lives in the W, Pierre Jean, closing 9/26. JP paid $1.2 because Carter basically said to him, take it, get rid of it. But of course it’s been updated and decked out to the nines, and there are not many of these multi-level units left. Former Cowboys player Kenneth Hamlin has the same unit on floor 23.

First he unloaded his huge house in University Park. Now the man who basically birthed and nurtured the Dallas Mavericks into the sixth most valuable basketball team in the U.S. is selling sold his to-die-for North West Tower W condo of many levels. This is a giant custom unit, just shy of 4,000 square feet with two bedrooms, three full baths and one half as powder room on the 27th floor. 2340 Victory Park Lane hall 2430 Victory Park Lane den 2430 Victory Park Lane kit#2704 2430 Victory Park dining 2430 Victory Park bfastAs an end unit, you get fantastic premium panoramic views of Dallas from floor to ceiling windows and never have to worry about drapes, even in the bathtub! (If you do, though, there are electric shades at the push of a button.) There are limestone floors, sleek marble counters, two terraces and a master suite the size of California with more than ample closet space.DonCARTER2-articleLarge

The kitchen is long, open and central, with a large island, gas cook top, Sub Zero and double ovens. Cook yourself up a storm, bring in Kent Rathburn, or call down for the W’s still strong, always dependable Whatever Whenever service. Don Carter has bought up a penthouse at the Stoneleigh Residences, which he is finishing out when he and wife Linda Jo are not sailing on their 41 foot power boat in the Gulf. He also owns another W unit in this building on the 22nd floor that is only 1700 square feet.2430 Victory Park master bath1 2430 Victory master bath 2 2340 Victory Park Lane hall 2340 Victory Park Lane 2430 Victory Park master 2430 Victory park guest 2430 Victory Park balcony

It’s just enough space to hang out before and after a game, which Carter seldom misses in his signature cowboy hat. He retains a 4% ownership in the Mavericks team, Mark Cuban is majority owner. This unit is listed with Rogers Healy’s Steve Rigley at $2,500,000.

I love how this is totally unlike his home on University. It’s really a steal! Well, maybe…
