Actor and martial artist Chuck Norris is reportedly downsizing, by selling one of his residences located in Dallas, Texas. Associated Press reported the 7,362 square foot home is located in the Northwood Hills area. Listing agent Rogers Healy has shared that the home is listed for $1.2 million.
The home served as Norris’ on-screen character Cordell Walker, of Walker, Texas Ranger, during the TV show’s eight full seasons on CBS. Starting in 1993, Walker was a fictional member of the Texas Ranger Division law enforcement agency. Following Norris’ typical procedures, Walker primarily used martial arts to enforce the law.
Given the action show’s setting in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, some scenes were filmed nearby. Many scenes, however, were filmed on the property now up for sale. In addition to the residence, the studio for the filming of Walker, Texas Ranger is in a separate 884 square feet building on the property.
According to Healy, the location was also used for filming some of Norris’ other productions.
The house itself has four oversized bedrooms and seven full bathrooms, as well as two half baths. Healy’s listing touts the Mediterranean-Ranch style home as a great option for families and entertainers. Families and entertainers may have some competition from Norris fans, looking to add a big piece of memorabilia to their collections.
Of course the two-story home would not be complete without the media room and the in-home gym. The walls of the gym are decked in posters advertising Norris’ work. If that’s not an inspiration to work out, who knows what is. The media room has theater seating and a screen that rivals some movie theaters.
Outside the home, a large patio offers the perfect view of the even larger personal pool and a separate hot tub.
Pulling up to the front of Norris’ home on the circle drive, the sprawling lawn and the beautiful exterior make it no wonder why Norris, who co-owns the home with his brother Aaron Norris, has held on to the property for so long. As AP reports, however, Norris and his wife own other properties in the area, and it is time for them to reduce their number of homes.
Not even a week ago, Norris’ home was listed by Rogers Healy and Associates. Since Friday, potential buyers have already been touring the home and weighing the option to purchase this piece of Walker, Texas Ranger history.
