Everything is BIG in TEXAS, heck we know that already, the question is when you live in the Lone Star State where everything is big, who owns the biggest residential house in Texas? The answer is, we don't know who owns this one now, but we know who used to own it, and when you read it, it will make a lot of sense.

It's called Chateau Montclair and would you believe the former owner used to play professional football? Would you believe he played for the Dallas Cowboys? Would you believe he earned a Championship Ring as a player for the Cowboys? Of course you would. The former owner of this home is coaching a college team these days after a successful football broadcasting career. Have you figured it out yet?

He is a former Cowboy, 49er, Falcon, Raven, and Red Skin, he is a Hall of Famer with two Championship Rings over 14 seasons and 8 Pro Bowls.

Not a big surprise that this flashy and brilliant football player would own such an amazing home in Prosper, Texas. Prosper is located a little north of Frisco, Texas which is a little north of Dallas straight up the North Dallas Tollway and not too far at all from "The Star", home of the Dallas, Cowboys in Frisco.
