Dallas Stars goaltender Marty Turco may have turned down a three-year, $6 million contract from the Philadelphia Flyers, but when it comes to real estate, he might not be turning down many offers on his University Park castle. For one thing, he holds the cachet of a lucky star address: maybe 3500 Centenary holds the same winning streak that 3500 Beverly did.

Marty’s home is gorgeous and certainly much more affordable, and only listed for $2,795,000 versus $12.5 million. Write up this real estate contract, you’ll get a gorgeous Gage custom build from 2006 on an 80-foot corner lot. We know how coveted those corners are in the Park Cities.

This property is filled with more than 6,700 square feet gussied up by top interior designers. Five bedrooms, five full baths, two half-baths, four living areas, a gourmet kitchen, a pool with a water wall which sounds so enticing right about now, complete outdoor kitchen and living area, screened porches, two-car garage, plus a library and study. Don’t know about the market for goaltenders, but I’ll tell you about the Dallas real estate market: the 34-year-old Turco’s home is a steal.
