Beloved former Cowboys star rushes Dallas-area mansion onto market for $4.7 million
After taking his talents to Las Vegas, former Dallas Cowboys star Jason Witten is trading in his Westlake mansion for nearly $4.7 million.
The future Hall of Famer, who recently signed with the Las Vegas Raiders, is now passing off his 8,841-square-foot estate at 2001 Navasota Cove, in the exclusive Vaquero community.
Positioned at the end of a cul-de-sac, the Mediterranean-style mansion sits on a 1.2-acre site in Vaquero, a gated luxury enclave that is home to myriad sports stars and celebrities. It has six bedrooms, six full bathrooms, and two half-bathrooms.
The property features a 828-square-foot guesthouse, resort-style pool with waterfall and built-in slide, and ample space for outdoor entertaining.
The 17-room mansion, built in 2008, also offers:
- Four-car garage
- Wine cellar
- Vaulted ceilings
- Five fireplaces
- Game room
- Movie theater
- Access to Tom Fazio-designed golf course
Roxann Taylor and Dan Nicoloff, both of Engel & Völkers, have the $4.685 million listing. The property went on the market in late March, after Witten was traded to the Raiders.
Witten shared the mansion with his wife, Michelle, who’s an ER nurse, and their two sons and two daughters. The Wittens bought the mansion in 2013 and were often seen out and about in neighboring Southlake, shopping with their young kids at Central Market.
Taylor and Nicoloff couldn’t be reached for comment May 5. Taylor tells Barron’s that the Witten mansion “would be an ideal home for a family with children as it has multiple living areas for entertainment and play.”
Jason Witten, who turns 38 years old on May 6, was drafted by the Cowboys in 2003 and quickly became a fan favorite. He is the longest-tenured player in Cowboys history.
He played for Jerry Jones’ squad through 2017, racking up a string of records and accolades. The tight end, who was beloved for his tenacity on the field and his leadership in the locker room, announced his retirement from the NFL in 2018 and subsequently snagged a gig with ESPN’s Monday Night Football. After sitting in the broadcast booth during the 2018 season, Witten returned to the Cowboys in 2019.
Earlier this year, after publicly stating he wished to remain with his beloved Cowboys, Witten signed a one-year deal worth up to $4.75 million with the Raiders.
