|Not bad for a neighborhood gate house, eh?|
So ... let's bend the rules, crane our necks and check out the quarterback's new house.
We all know Romo moved out of his old house in the Cottonwood Valley neighborhood of Irving and is selling the 5,500-square foot joint for a cool $1 million. As for his new address?
I haven't seen his new digs with my own eyes, but got a couple of sources who have been on the property and inside the home in the far North Dallas community of Glen Abbey near Bent Tree Country Club.
The key, cool statistics:
*12,000 square feet
*A spiral slide that lands on an indoor basketball court
*A back yard that features a glass-enclosed spa and sauna
Sounds like a pretty swanky playground for sons Hawkins and Rivers, and not a bad place to entertain or relax for Tony and wife Candice.
The locale, of course, makes total sense. For now it's a quick drive up the Tollway to the Cowboys' new headquarters at The Star in Frisco. And, when Romo retires, he can simply meander down the street to play his beloved golf on one of the Metroplex's best courses at Bent Tree.
Don't have a price tag, but - relatively speaking - it sounds like a modest place. In 2013 the quarterback signed a contract worth a whopping $108 million. One of his peers - guy named Tom Brady - recently sold his moated mansion in Los Angeles and moved into a $50 million castle outside Boston.
