Troy Aikman graduated from UCLA in 1989 as the top-rated college quarterback in the country and was that year's # 1 draft choice by the Dallas Cowboys. He quickly became a star for America's Team where he was a three-time Super Bowl champion and qualified for six Pro Bowls. While playing football may have come easy for Aikman, selling his $14 million Dallas mansion is not so easy.
Troy may have been a trend setter in 2004 when he and his new wife Rhonda bought and then demolished a very nice home in their ritzy Dallas Highland Park neighborhood (Mitt Romney also plans to tear down his $12 million San Diego beach home and build a much larger home) and built a 10,500 square foot mansion. The current Aikman estate is just what you might imagine for Big D extravagance at five bedrooms, seven baths, swimming pool, outdoor entertainment area, fancy arched glass doors with iron trim, two-level atrium, family room with hand-hewn beams, and a guest house. Located on a secluded block with only five homes, the Aikmans are now divorced so Troy is selling. It was the most expensive home in Dallas when it came on the market in 2010 at $24 million. However Troy did manage to sell an adjoining lot and reduced the asking price to $14 million.
