    Chuck Norris is selling his house in Dallas.

    The first two “Chuck Norris Facts” are absurdly false and part of the internet meme that made Chuck Norris a household name to a new generation in 2005, and the last statement is definitely true – Chuck Norris has just put his Dallas, Texas home on the market for $1.2 million.

    The roundhouse-kicking martial arts legend and star of the hit TV show, Walker, Texas Ranger, is selling his gorgeous 7,362 square foot ranch home in the Northwood Hills neighborhood of Dallas. The home was built in 1975 and has since been renovated and expanded to feature 4 oversized bedrooms, 7 full baths and 2 half baths, a large media room, a home gym with a Chuck Norris Total Gym (naturally), large patio off a sparkling pool, 3 car garage, and an 884 square foot detached studio.

    The property is registered in Chuck’s legal name – Carlos Ray Norris.

    Rogers Healy of Rogers Healy and Associates is the listing agent.

      $29,500,000

      Back to school, back to school,  to prove to Dad that I’m not a fool…” Although many kids would rather be home watching school classics like Billy Madison today, it’s back to school they go as a new school year begins for many students across the country!

      Even though this time of year may bring back those back-to-school blues, little do students realize, that their parents probably jumped through hoops to get Junior into the best school district possible – and more likely than not, this involved a house hunt and a big move before he or she turned 5 years old.

      In the spirit of learning and moving for a good school, we are shining our Luxe Living lens on Dallas, TX – home of America’s best public high school. Recently, US World News & Report ranked The School for the Talented and Gifted the top public high school in the nation and awarded it a gold ranking for its test scores, awards, school data and teaching staff– all of which are said to foster the best well rounded, college-ready students.

      For parents in the Great State of Texas who love a little glitter in their lives, that’s good news. From what we hear, Dallas is a growing luxury real estate destination with its downtown area emerging as an up-and-coming tech hub and its flourishing restaurant and shopping scene reeling in the big spenders. With an average listing price of $502,534, it’s on the high end of the real estate scale and this featured $29.5 million, 10.5 acre, 5-bedroom and 10-bath Dallas Mt. Vernon landmark sure does its part to bring up the average.

      This old-world style property offers historical charm with a splash of modern renovation. Dark hardwoods line the floors, and crown molding can be found in the study with fireplace and built-in library, bringing the property’s antique personality to life. The three-level open floor plan allows for plenty of natural light throughout and can be enjoyed in any part of the home. The renovated kitchen offers an extra large center island and is surrounded by dark wooden cabinets and a lovely brick arch over a stainless steel stove.

      A large heated pool, putting green, lighted tennis courts, and 4-lane bowling center with mini diner allow for a hardworking Dallas student to sit back and relish in a fabulous Texan escape right in the comfort of their own home. When hitting the books, one can catch up on some reading on a lovely country-style porch overlooking the 10.5 acre grounds or in one of the many cozy studies with built-in fireplaces.

      Additional luxe amenities include an elevator, 2-story guesthouse, wine storage, 16-car garage and outdoor entertainment area with gazebo, two fireplaces and pizza oven.
