This mansion is notable for its use as the filming location of the Ewing family home in the first season of the long-running soap opera, Dallas. The series won multiple Emmy awards across its 14 seasons run from 1978 to 1981, and this home sprawls nearly as long at 10,210 square feet of home within a 4.3-acre lot. Since the mansion was only used in the shorter first season, fans may not recognize it, but it perfectly fits the bill of an estate belonging to a family of Texas moguls.

The house and lot are currently for sale at an estimated $8,938,296. This is substantially lower than when it first went on the market in 2017, but it’s still a bit more expensive than other homes of similar size if you look solely at the cost of interior space, sitting at roughly $875 per square foot. When you include the acreage and history, which are both hard to match, the estate is a steal.
Located at 4800 Park Lane in Dallas, TX, the house itself is nestled between low hills brimming with vibrant green. Coming up to the house, it’s impossible to miss the stately pillars that rise behind the elegant walls and surrounding foliage. The serene pool and hot tub in the backyard are perfect for basking in the Texas sun or enjoying a comfortable summer night locked away in your corner of luxury.
When you need more activity, you can play a few tennis matches on the courts or wander through the forest to find the surrounding creek branches. If it’s too hot to exercise outside, you can work out in the guest cottage that doubles as the gymnasium.
Once you pass through the columned entryway and enter the primary structure, you’ll be greeted by a stunning foyer with a slightly spiraling staircase that leads to the upper floor. Past that, there are five bedrooms, seven baths, and a wide assortment of specialized rooms. The interior may be recognizable to the diehard fans who watched the first season, but the home has been renovated over the years to embrace a mix of its original charm and modern comfort.
Enjoy a game of pool in the billiards room, cook a grand meal in the full chef’s kitchen, or have a drink at the bar. When you’re looking for entertainment, you can enjoy something modern in the media room or go for the classics in the library. All of the rooms somehow manage to blend together enough open area to allow a large gathering with a rustic and cozy feel that is sure to bring friends and family together.
Despite having so much space, the home is still near to the heart of Dallas if you want to hit the town. You can reach the West End historic district in less than 20 minutes of driving, even if you avoid the tollway. The airport is even closer, which is convenient for a jet setting mogul’s lifestyle.
