Remember Julius Jones? The 25-year-old former (and a mite bit injury-prone) Dallas Cowboys running back who now plays for the Seattle Seahawks?
Remember when he was back in Dallas two years ago wearing that Seahawks uniform on Thanksgiving Day? Guess where he stayed? 3629 Brown Street. Jones still has a home in Dallas that he'd really like to sell, and he just listed it with newbie broker Clay Stapp for a bargain basement price of $950,000.
Oh and stay tuned for more on Stapp. Watch out, Rogers Healy, there is an ambitious, hot young broker nipping at your heels south of LBJ who played ball in New Mexico. Though Jones lived in this townhouse with his wife and two children, the place has bachelor pad stamped all over it.
It's a contemporary design that was built in 2001, packing a linebacker-sized 4,800 square feet into two stories. There are three bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, a wet bar, a gourmet kitchen, a sexy master bedroom, Zen garden in the middle atrium, riveting open-back staircase, a rooftop deck with one of the four fireplaces, a private courtyard, and security gates. It's all staged with Jones' own furniture, which goes with the house.
That is correct: you can buy this home fully furnished for less than what the Dallas Central Appraisal District has it appraised for: $1,176,000. I've said it before, I'll say it again: This home is what this kind of market is all about.
