Dallas TV Series Mansion Is for Sale
Tried and true fans of the TV soap opera Dallas certainly will remember that the now famous Southfork Ranch had a predecessor – the Calder House.

Curious to learn more about which parts of mystery and television intrigue you can still find inside this home? Read on to get an inside look at the home of ruthless oil tycoon family, which is now for sale.
Bask in Grandeur in This Texas Television Home
As moguls in the country’s massive oil empire, the Ewing family schemed and feuded throughout the Dallas series – and what better site for family drama, greed, and malice to occur than within the Ewing estate itself?
As you approach the timeless Georgian home, the front patio pillars of Southfork Ranch immediately conjure up images of beauty and grandeur. Take a moment to admire the stunning original exterior architecture, before you step inside to see where drama ensued…
Step Inside a Mogul-Worthy Estate
As you step inside the Southfork Ranch, you’ll notice that the entire estate has been renovated since its television debut. While the comprehensive 2003 renovation has obscured some vestiges of the home’s illustrious past, you’ll still find an impressive amount of opulence and beauty throughout the home.
Renovated to stay current with modern luxury, the 10,341-square-foot home includes five bedrooms and six bathrooms. Designed with a painstaking attention to detail, the original 1939 Georgian details are prominent throughout the home (we think J.R. would approve).
