A Look at Dirk Nowitzki's Spectacular Dallas Digs (Photos)

A Look at Dirk Nowitzki's Spectacular Dallas Digs (Photos) Dallas Mavericks superstar forward Dirk Nowitzki is playing at an all-time level during the Mavs incredible run to the 2011 NBA Finals. The undisputed greatest player in Dallas basketball history has most certainly joined the upper echelon of North Texas sports royalty, after leading his team to its second-ever championship series. The 10-time All-Star and future Hall of Famer is living large on and off the Big D hardwood.

In 2008, Nowitzki purchased an $8 million home in the prestigious Dallas neighborhood of Preston Hollow. Located eight miles north of American Airlines Center, this very ritzy section of North Dallas is home to Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, Dallas Cowboys legend Roger Staubach, billionaire energy tycoon T. Boone Pickens, billionaire businessman and former presidential candidate H. Ross Perot and former President George W. Bush.  

Constructed in 1937, Nowitzki's 9,215 square foot palace possesses five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a tennis court and a swimming pool. Take a look at exterior and interior photos of Dirk's colonial castle.

Nowitzki's home is as unique to Texas as those of LeBron James,  Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh are to South Florida.

Whatever the location, life at the highest levels of the NBA definitely has its perks.
