A truly significant piece of Texas history hit the market this week. For $1.25 million, you can now purchase the home at 4510 Hallmark Drive — where legendary Dallas Cowboys coach Tom Landry resided as he forged America’s team.

The 4,000-square-foot Preston Hollow home was custom built for Landry and his wife Alicia in 1962. The Landry family moved out in 1976, and the house has only had two other owners in the years since. The most recent resident brought the home up to date with major renovations, but being a Cowboys fan himself, he was careful to keep Landry’s legacy intact.

The mid-century ranch house is simple and understated with hints of Texas flair. The exterior is modern but homey with white painted brick, black shutters, simple wooden columns, and a narrow porch.

Inside, the home’s open floor plan is ideal for entertaining. Three living areas, the formal dining room, and the kitchen flow together seamlessly. White walls and light hardwood floors make the space bright and welcoming. The spacious gourmet kitchen is fit for a foodie, with ample storage room and stainless steel appliances.

In the rear of the home, walls of windows have gorgeous views of the lush backyard and offer abundant natural light in every room.

The home has four bedrooms, three baths, and a study. Barrel vault ceilings are a focal point of the secluded master bedroom, which also includes a sitting area, a spa-like bathroom, and three closets.

However, the best part of the home might be the covered atrium with an ultra-mod fire pit. Three sets of sliding glass doors lead to the outdoor living area, which looks out onto the tidy backyard, complete with Japanese Maples and Magnolia trees.

On top of being arguably the greatest coach in NFL history, apparently Tom Landry had great taste in real estate too. His mid-century digs might be the ultimate piece of Dallas Cowboys memorabilia.
