Oh, and they come with a mansion.
A palatial estate on Grapevine Lake is for sale, along with two cabins that once belonged to Oak Cliff gangster Herbert “The Cat” Noble. The address is Noble Way in Flower Mound.
The 9,000-square-foot house sits on more than 2 acres that includes the two stone cabins and has sunset views of the lake, plus “elegant millwork, grand entry, floating iron staircase and custom detailed ceilings throughout.” All five bedrooms have en suite bathrooms. There’s a theater room, a gym and an infinity-edge pool. You know, all the essentials.
Noble built the two cabins in the 1930s, according to the Dallas Morning News. He had a longstanding and violent feud with another Dallas gangster, Benny Binion, who later became a Las Vegas casino magnate and started the World Series of Poker.
Their feud killed Noble’s wife, who died in a car bomb intended for him. Noble died in 1951 when a bomb exploded as he approached his mailbox.
