Arlington Mansion Succumbs to Fire

Around 1:52am Arlington FD received reports that 2607 N. Cooper Street, an Italian estate and 9,000+ sq. foot main home, was ablaze.  Fire was found in the basement of the home.  Due to the choppy and unusual layout of the large home, it took firefighters all morning to snuff the flames.  The home is reported to be a total loss.  Last appraisal information indicates the home was appraised over $2.5 million.

16,000 Sq. Footer in Colleyville on Glade Road

It appears that most - if not all - of this huge home in Colleyville has been completed.  The appraised $4 million dollar mansion is located along W. Glade Road just east of Pool Road.  There is also a back entrance off Highgrove Court just north of the property.  The Appraisal District does not disclose the owner (obviously someone "big"), but does list the home at 15,900+ sq. feet.  Wowsa!

Doc Malouf Still Building His Compound

Yawn...yikes, it has been a while.  I just woke up from my 7 month nap.  Figured it was time for a new post!  (I have been busy with college - that's my excuse)

The latest Google pictures indicate ole Dr. Richard Malouf is still working on his Billionaires Row compound. Take 2 multi-million dollar homes, combine them, add a water park and I would say you have a pretty nice place.  Not bad, Doc.  This "home" is destined to be the biggest "home" in Dallas. Too much house for me...

XTO's Bob Simpson Upgrades Spread in Montserrat

While taking a quick Google trip over Montserrat, I saw (on updated maps) that Bob Simpson, Co-Founder of oil/gas giant XTO and Co-Owner of the Texas Rangers, has upgraded his estate over on Bella Terra.  The home, appraised over $5 mil in 2013, is around 20,000 sq. feet and now includes some type of wade-pond and, my favorite, a Texas Rangers sport court.  Too cool.  Nice upgrade Simpson!

The Late Kidd Kraddick's Home in east Fort Worth

The news of Kidd Kraddick's sudden passing has stunned a lot of people.  He was an influential figure, both in radio and philanthropy, giving his money and time to benefit others.  He will be dearly missed by many.

According to Wikipedia, Kidd's real name was David Peter Cradick.  A search of the appraisal district shows Kidd owned a home near the Waterchase Golf Club of east Fort Worth on Waterchase Drive.  The neighborhood is fairly hidden tucked behind into the hills north of I30 and Eastchase Parkway.  His home in the 8900 block of Waterchase Drive was around 5,000 sq. feet and includes a 4 car garage and pool.

The owner of the home, listed as David Peter Cradick, also included the address of Kidd Kraddick in the Morning at 220 W. Las Colinas Blvd in Irving, Suite 210.  David P. Cradick and Carol (who he divorced in 2008, according to Wikipedia) also own a vacant lot on the same street.
