You can dine with Dallas Cowboys legend Emmitt Smith - if you buy his $2.2M house

·2 min read

Emmitt Smith is back in the news and it has nothing to do with football.

The former running back with the Dallas Cowboys and NFL’s all-time leading rusher has put his longtime, custom-made Dallas home on the Texas real estate market for $2.2 million.

An interesting perk that comes along with the purchase of the home? The buyer will get a private dinner with Smith.

Features that stand out (not including his trophy case) in this 10,806-square-foot beauty:

  • Massive rooms

  • Dining room that seats 22 people

  • Media room that seats at least 11

  • Game room

  • Primary bedroom with an open sitting area

  • Steam room and Jacuzzi bath in primary bathroom

  • Pool

  • Covered outdoor entertaining area

  • Four-car garage

“One of my favorite aspects of the home is that it’s perfect for entertaining,” Emmitt said according to the news release. “With a large dining room table that fits twenty-two people, a media room, and a large game room, this home is ready for the new owners to create their own memories with both friends and loved ones.”

Emmitt also touched base with his own personal thoughts about the special place he’s called home since 1995 — the last season the Cowboys won the Super Bowl.

My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving, and gathering around the dining room table with the people closest to me year after year was a special tradition,” he said in a statement through Douglas Elliman, Mansion Global reported. “Those are wonderful memories that I will always cherish, and I know the new owners will enjoy this home as much as I have.”

Smith played in the NFL for 15 seasons after being selected by the Cowboys in the first round of the 1990 NFL Draft. The Hall of Famer ended up rushing for 18,355 yards over his career, breaking the record previously held by Walter Payton, and was a three-time Super Bowl Champion. Smith also won the third season of “Dancing with the Stars” with dancing partner Cheryl Burke in 2006.

Listing is held by Arthur Greenstein of Douglas Elliman Texas.
