Spoilers ahead! If you haven’t watched TNT’s Dallas mid-season premier yet, which launched Monday night, you may want to just look at all the pretty pictures.
To find out this amazing home on Southfork Road, jump!
Is there a better way to honor the original bad boy of Dallas than to don a Stetson and some Lucchese boots while showing some of the city’s best properties tomorrow? I couldn’t think of one, either.
The idea came from Scott Carlson, who sent us this note:
March 11 is officially declared as “Larry Hagman Day.” The People have spoken. The mayor of Dallas has been requested to issue a Proclamation declaring it official.
Let’s get the word out and have FUN… Post on Facebook, Tweet, Radio and news station.
Wear your cowboy boots and hats to honor the man Larry Hagman and the legend J.R. Ewing.
“He was the Pied Piper of life and brought joy to everyone he knew. He was creative, generous, funny, loving and talented” – Linda Gary
Larry loved to have fun and especially loved wearing his cowboy hat… So, let’s join Larry and wear our cowboy hat this special day of celebration. Have fun sharing photos of you and your cowboy hat..
The date of March 11, 2013 was chosen because that is the date on which the current “Dallas” series on TNT will air the episode entitled “J.R.’s Masterpiece,” which is the J.R. Ewing funeral episode. On that date, legions of fans will both mourn the passing of Larry Hagman as well as celebrate his wonderful life.
Beloved by millions of fans, the man who embodied TV’s greatest villain, J.R. Ewing, was largely responsible for the success of the long-running hit TV series that generated worldwide publicity and recognition for its namesake city of Dallas. On this day we will celebrate the remembrance of the native Texas, actor, and a great friend to our city.
If you play along, send us photos of yourself clad in cowboy attire! And Happy Larry Hagman Day! To help celebrate, here’s a poem about J.R. from Scott:
J. R . THE Texan
Rich, smart, dashing.
Death and Life…. life and Death
A cycle ever more!
Transcendence here and there,
To the light …everywhere!
Dallas and the death of J.R.
and our beloved Sue Ellen!
The Life of Larry Hagman and
the Resurrection of a pained City.
Fun…BEAUTY….OIL, Wealth… And Texas Karma!!!!
An ICON to behold!
The Astronaut….with a Genie in a bottle.
And the biggest, best Oil Tycoon
with a mischievous heart.
Gratitude, Love and Blessing’s
To the soul and brilliance of a great being.
A true Texan with a yellow rose delight!
With a tip of our hat,
We say Goodbye and We Salute
…..A man named Larry Hagman
and a legend named … J. R . !!!!
-Scott F. Carlson
According to Cody Baker of Ebby, Mary Jo Pope of the Paulette Greene Group has the listing where tons of scenes were shot. Why was the Willow Bend Country home chosen?
Rumor has it that this particular home was chosen over all other options for the filming of interior scenes because of its wide open spaces, beautiful decor and many amenities.
Pope, who was present for filming, said a family dinner scene was shot in the formal dining room, a scene featuring actors Patrick Duffy and Jesse Metcalf (Bobby and Christopher Ewing, respectively) was shot in the study, and the pre-wedding bridesmaid scene was filmed in the downstairs guest suite.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that the relaunch of “Dallas” — TV show that was popular just about everywhere except Japan — will be on TNT come June 13. But if you have almost $4 million burning in your pocket and a hankering to own the home where J.R., Bobby, and the rest of the Ewing family had frequent screaming matches, drank themselves into oblivion, and sabotaged each other, this Willow Bend Country mansion is for you!
Seriously, this Plano home marketed by Ebby agent Paulette Greene is immaculate! Despite having a gusher in the backyard, there’s not a drop of oil anywhere at 2504 Beacon Crest Drive! The show’s fans will love checking out the digs where Larry Hagman and cast stepped foot, sat down, and poured themselves a Bourbon.
Here’s the rundown on the 1.36 acre property from Realtor.com:
The home itself, built in 2000, offers over 11,000-square-feet of living space, with six bedrooms and 9 bathrooms, and is adorned in luxe touches and finishes throughout. Not a master suite, but a master wing features its own fireplace and his and hers baths, while a pair of master bedrooms, one upstairs and one downstairs, can be found on the premises. In the backyard, a cabana and full outdoor kitchen look out over a massive diving pool and a pool house that leads to a sunken tennis court.
This could be the perfect house for Pilar, amiright? Any takers?
