Update at 11:09 a.m.: Candy Evans, just back from vacation, has more. You can snap up the Leppert homestead for a mere $5.7 mil. Movie theater included.
Original post: Tom Leppert, you might have notice, did not do terribly well in his quest for U.S. Senate. He lost. Got trounced, even. Not Craig James trounced, but defeated rather handily. So he's not going to Washington, but he is going somewhere. On the same day voters go to the polls to choose between one of Leppert's rivals, his Preston Hollow digs are hitting the market, the Morning News' Steve Brown reported last night.
Former councilwoman Mary Poss is listing the 10,800 square foot home, on the tax rolls for $4.3 mil.. The Lepperts aren't sure yet where they will move, she told Brown, but they're empty nesters, see.
""Their kids are almost out of college and they don't need that much space any more."
Me? I think he just got fed up with neighbor T. Boone's late-night shenanigans.
