Chuck Norris recently put his Dallas home on the market for $1.2 million.
The former action hero’s four-bedroom Northwood Hills abode probably looks familiar to fans of the actor’s work. The house served as the home of Cordell Walker on the CBS series Walker: Texas Ranger. The action-packed drama aired on the network from 1993 until 2001.
The 7,362-square-foot Dallas home was co-owned by both Chuck Norris and his brother Aaron Norris. The real estate agent handling the sale explained that the actor and his wife own other properties elsewhere. However, they are currently looking to release one of the houses from their stable.
The Northwood Hills house contains seven bathrooms, a movie theater, and a weight room. There’s also a separate building on the property that served as a studio during Norris’ Walker: Texas Ranger days.
Although several potential buyers have reportedly taken a stroll through the house, nobody has decided to plunk down the $1.2 million needed to make the property their own. Surely there’s a Walker fan out there with a considerable amount of scratch burning a hole in his or her pocket.
To sweeten the deal, the gym inside Chuck Norris’ Dallas home contains memorabilia from the long-running CBS series. If that isn’t enough to coax fans off the proverbial fence, then I don’t know what will.
Unfortunately, purchasing the ranch-style house won’t make your round-house kicks any stronger. At least the aura and mystique of Chuck Norris will permeate every inch of the property. The downside: Dealing with other Walker: Texas Ranger fans who might show up to snap shots of their hero’s former home.
Norris made his screen debut in the 1968 Dean Martin flick The Wrecking Crew. However, it was his turn in the Bruce Lee flick The Way of the Dragon that put the martial arts champion on the map. He went on to star in a string of popular action movies during the 80s and 90s.
Would you consider dropping $1.2 million on a house previously occupied by Chuck Norris?
