    If you can afford it you can now snap up real life Southern Cross Ranch in Forney, Texas for a cool $3.6 million. The property comes complete with Linda Gray.

    It looks extremely well-maintained, I'm sure it will attract plenty of interest.

    So pretty. This is where Sue Ellen sat and watched the sunset every night with John Ross and her Old Weller's No. 107 and Coke (She was trying ween herself off vodka whenever she was at the Southern Cross):

    Wow! It's actually called "Southern Cross Ranch?"
    I didn't know that. The place looks beautiful.

    Apparently they kept the name after the show renamed it for the screen (I can't recall what it was called before). Just as Duncan Acres remained "Southfork".

    Why resist immortality?

    It's listed as four bedrooms. Here's the interior.

    Only one?
    I thought there were at least two bedrooms upstairs. I mean there's JR/SE's room and then Miss Ellie's old room, as we saw them walk up the stairs and into the crime scene on the new Dallas. Whoever thought it was a good idea to destroy Miss Ellie's room at the museum in favor of a crime scene! :a2:

    We saw them walk up the stairs (supposedly at the motel in Mexico), but the room they used in which JR was killed (AKA: Ellie's room) is actually downstairs on the back corner of the house.

    I wasn't a huge fan of the house itself but I did enjoy the landscape. It would appear the home sits on a slight rise of the land giving it better views of its surrounds. I like the photograph taken from the balcony of the house overlooking the pool towards the tennis court in the distance. The trees have given the property a luxurious feel. And thanks to Garry for posting that image of Sue Ellen walking into the pool. That photo will now get me through the day. I can see why Sue Ellen had three suitors chasing her, JR, Dusty and Clayton.

    Yes, the rise makes it nicer.

    Even though Southfork is actually nearby, its surroundings I find kind of depressing. I feel like it's in a little bit of a trough.

    I love that garden, and its sparseness. It's almost as if there's nothing beyond Southern Cross, kinda like as if the earth were flat and this was close to the edge.
    It's almost heavenly.
    Normally I'm a huge wood-fan but those pictures make me scream no! no! no!
    Combined with those "modern" white walls and ceilings makes it looks faux-rustique. Utterly tasteless!

    Yes!

    And it's right up my tasteless alley.

    Besides, faux-rustique beats no-rustique!

    Then I'd rather opt for a completely different style.

    Well, I guess the only way to make it right is to buy Southern Cross myself!

    Not a big fan of the interior decorating but I suppose it does fit with the property overall. The exterior is lovely, I really like the whole pool setting, it's not just there, there's a design to the outside grounds.

    There is only one bedroom upstairs at real SF, such a tiny house! and thats decorated as JR and Sue Ellens bedroom with the balcony
    Miss Ellies bedroom at real SF is at the very end of the house on Ground floor on L side

    And fdont get me started on changing it (and wiping traces of Miss Ellie from SF) into JRs bedroom where he died

    CC can :crazyme::brick::2B::wall::rant::head::r&r::bang::scream::argue::argue::a2: for that decision!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
