George and Laura have ponied up for a 8,501-square-foot, four-bedroom, ranch-style home in Preston Hollow, a wealthy North Dallas neighborhood where they lived before he became governor of Texas in 1995. I guess George is saying goodbye to the Georgian style.Preston Hollow counts some other prominent residents, including Dallas mayor Tom Leppert, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, former Dallas Cowboys Roger Staubach and Chuck Howley, and billionaire investors Harold Simmons and T.

Don't forget about Mike Modano of the Dallas Stars! He and his wife also live in Preston Hollow. It's a beautiful neighborhood.

I love the trees, but the house seems quite 'suburban'.

Doesn't anybody else think that 8500 sq. ft. is absolutely absurd?!
