House For Sale
There's a notorious house for sale in Dallas, so much for sale that Briggs Freeman Sotheby International Realty, the agency listing the property, has issued a press release, and so here we are.
Located at 5025 Wateka Dr., the house is a 4,853-square-foot behemoth said to be inspired by the sci-fi film TRON: Legacy, and it's listed for $3,960,000.
The house has 3 bedrooms, 3-and-one-half baths, and sits on a teensy .185-acre lot. That is not even a quarter acre. But there is surely a lot of wow packed onto every square inch.
It was designed by builder Michael Shaun Jackson as his own home and built between 2018-2020 — replacing a modest 1400-square-foot home built in the 1940s, as were most of the homes on this street (here's one sweet example). The street is now transitioning into a neighborhood where properties are listed for up to $600K just for the land alone.
Features on this house include:
- marble-pattern, Italian porcelain floors
- Murano crystal chandeliers
- Ferrari-themed office
- speakeasy/game room with upholstered walls
The outdoor space has a checkerboard terrace floor and sunken conversation pit with firepit coffee table.
The Tron influence can be felt in the interior's 3D geometric shapes, with a color scheme that is almost entirely gray-and-white, and the occasional gold accent.
A two-story living room features a monumental fireplace sheathed in book-matched, marble-effect porcelain slabs and a motorized cradle that can retract an oversized TV into the floor.

A massive glass wall panel in the room allows for the full display of one of the vehicles in the three-car garage. If you're someone who likes to keep an eye on your car at all times, this is heaven.
The kitchen has diamond-tread accent panels, quartzite countertops, Italian porcelain flooring, and Miele appliances. The TRON influence exerts itself in a black-and-gray palette, which the release notes was inspired by a craft in the movie known as the Recognizer.
The master bedroom has a Versace-inspired theme, including a fireplace with an ornate mantel. The master bath has a floating tub underlit by LEDs whose colors change and pulsate. It's surrounded by titanium fire glass which can turn opaque for privacy.

A game room is padded in turquoise ultra-suede with zebra-striped patterned carpeting.
In its favor, the home was designed to be eco-friendly, with low heating and cooling cost. And the Ferrari Tributo F8 Spider currently displayed in the garage can also be purchased for an additional $575,000.
