Haroldson Lafayette “H. L.” Hunt, Jr. (February 17, 1889 – November 29, 1974), known throughout his life as H. L. Hunt, was a Texas oil tycoon and conservative Republican political activist. By trading poker winnings for oil rights, he ultimately secured title to much of the East Texas Oil Field, one of the world’s largest oil deposits. From it and his other acquisitions, he accrued a fortune that was among the world’s largest; at the time of his death, he was reputed to have the highest net worth of any individual in the world. His personal life, which featured many children by three wives, was among the chief inspirations for the television series Dallas, whose character J.R. Ewing was largely based on popular perceptions of Hunt. The Texas city of Hunt is named after him.

This exceptional 10-acre estate merges history with glamour as the most famous property in Texas. Home to legendary oilman H.L. Hunt and his children – including Super Bowl creator Lamar Hunt and Rosewood Hotel founder Caroline Hunt – until 2000, Dallas Landmark Estate has been featured in magazines, newspapers, books, and played host to numerous charity galas and celebrity guests, from athletes to authors to movie stars and former presidents.

Renovated in 2002, the estate impresses with its 10,511 sq ft residence, and 1,200 sq foot pool house/video game center. From a climate-controlled 10,000-bottle wine storage to exquisite grounds that house tennis courts, a swimming pool, putting green, and a Neiman Marcus Christmas Book fantasy gift – a four-lane bowling alley, every detail has been considered to ensure a wonderful experience. Rare and irreplaceable, Dallas Landmark Estate is Texas. The main residence offers five bedrooms and nine baths. The guest quarters provide four bedrooms, four and a half baths, and a media and wine room.
