Photos: Former Dallas Cowboy Bob Breunig’s cozy estate for sale at $1.2 million
It's luxurious without being pretentious.
LAKE HIGHLANDS Today we are heading over to Oak Highland Estates in Lake Highlands, where some of the best values in Dallas real estate are to be found — obviously former Dallas Cowboy Bob Breunig knew it, that’s why he lived here for umpteen years! Breuning, you may recall, started 117 straight games, retired after the 1984 Cowboy’s season. He was the franchise’s second-leading tackler, having played 10 seasons, appearing in 21 playoff games, six NFC championships, and three Super Bowls. In 2006, he was named Dallas Father of the Year and this, dear folks, is where he raised his precious family.
Oak Highland is a delicious part of Lake Highlands. Where else can you be south of LBJ, east of Greenville, on a secure, private, wooded cul de sac with a park practically across the street? Richardson schools. 9215 Westview is a red hot, red brick find. Built in 1982, the home is luxurious but not overstated or pretentious, kind of like Breunig himself. And it has had great TLC. You get a sense that the home was built to raise a loving family as well as entertain everyone from the back to school swim party to an all-adult cocktail fest. At 4,972 square feet, the home is set on 0.39 lushly treed acres and might actually be a great empty nester home that could be filled to the brim come holidays: five bedrooms, four full baths — curiously, no powder?
There are at least three different living areas, a study, and a porch — surely room in one of these to carve out a powder room. The master is large at 21 by 19 feet, and there is a whole huge extra room just for storage sized 17 by 13 feet. In 1982 they were also building walk-in closets. Great yard space and a pretty pool complete the back yard.
Yeah, at $1.195 million this home will need some updating, but you’ve got so much to work with here — great natural floors and floorplan, a few bathroom updates should be painless.
Besides, don’t forget: Bob Breunig slept here, and the cost of all those great vibes? Priceless.
