Primetime soap operas were all the rage in the 1980s, and none were more popular than Dallas. After all, everything's bigger in Texas.
The popular TV series practically lived by that saying, with an extensive cast, rich storylines and unlimited amount of wealth.
The crown jewel for the family's fortune was Southfork Ranch, the glamorous and unattainable family estate. Now, you might have the chance to buy it for yourself. The Dallas-area mansion used for scenes from the show recently went on the market.
Although the property for sale isn't the sprawling white estate we saw every week in the exterior shots, many of the show's interior scenes were filmed at this location.
That's right, you'd be walking the same halls as Miss Ellie, Jock, Bobby, Pamela and J.R. Can you imagine reenacting one of brothers' infamous poolside fights? What about having an intense and scheming conversation in the living room over a crackling fire?
Just like the show, everything about the property is over the top. The 10,000 square foot estate has five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a media room and a billiards room. Don't forget about the elevator and the wet bar.
If you're not crazy about the popular primetime soap opera, you might be interested in the home because of its famous neighbors. According to Top Ten Real Estate Deals, former President George W. Bush, investor Mark Cuban and businessman T. Boone Pickens live around the way.
You don't need to run an oil empire to afford this mansion, but you'll definitely need a hefty bank account. The property is listed for just under $13 million. Who's ready to move in?
