For some, a home is simply a place to live in privacy. For others, it is also a shrine to their feelings. One newly listed property in Dallas fits perfectly in the latter category.
2010 sci-fi action movie Tron: Legacy, a sequel to the 1982 classic, serves as just one inspiration for this three-bedroom Texas mansion, which is currently on the market for $3.96 million. Like a sci-fi franchise, this 4,120-square-foot home offers plenty of innovation from another world. Think a LED floating dock, a Formula 1 desk and an outdoor dining area, plus a 75-inch motorized TV that rises off the floor.
Seller Michael Sean Jackson had his sights set on a property teardown and ended up buying the home for $286,000 in 2018, according to The The Wall Street Journal. Construction on the new home ended in 2020, costing Jackson and his wife Andrea $1.35 million. Jackson said The Wall Street Journal That costs went up because he had so much creative freedom. “The cost changed dramatically because I had access to 3D design software that a friend of mine was trying out. I kept brainstorming and coming up with fun ideas to test in the software, and they tested so well that I had to implement them in actual build.”
Extending throughout the house are massive Italian porcelain floor tiles, Murano crystal chandeliers, and geometric design details that contribute to its futuristic look and feel.
One of his most famous creations includes a custom serpentine sofa that anchors the living room. Here you’ll also find a porcelain fireplace matching the books and, most strikingly, a white 2021 Ferrari F8 Tributo Spider displayed inside its private glasshouse. While the car is technically parked in the garage, the large windows that double as walls display it as a piece of art in a gallery.
Elsewhere, the theme continues: the kitchen looks something like a spaceship with an exhaust system of satin black diamond plates, quartzite countertops and Miele appliances. Nearby, the modern-style game room is decorated with custom tufted turquoise walls and Zebra rugs. The space has an ’80s vibe and showcases Jackson’s special collection of arcade games including a pinball machine and a Gibson Custom Flying V Guitar. Not to be outdone is the basic suite, which will make you feel as if you’ve walked into a bedroom in a Versace mansion.
The one thing this estate doesn’t have? swimming pool. Sure, a $50,000 fire pit should suffice.
Pogir and Lisa Besserer of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty carry the list.
