D’Andra Simmons, celebrity chef and star of the bygone Bravo show “The Real Housewives of Dallas,” has put her Highland Park mansion on the market.

Simmons is asking $5.25 million for her five-bedroom, 6,000-square-foot home at 3501 Lindenwood Avenue, the Dallas Morning News reported. Christine McKenny of Allie Beth Allman & Associates is the listing agent.

Simmons, who joined the cast of “The Real Housewives of Dallas” in its second season, has moved to a larger property with more acreage in Preston Hollow. The mansion is already drawing significant interest, as an open house recently attracted more than 25 visitors in just an hour and a half, McKenny told the outlet.

The Highland Park home, located across the street from Abbott Park, was even featured in the 2013 AIA Dallas Tour of Homes, earning recognition for its “harmonious composition between the exterior and interior environments.” Some of its architectural features, such as exposed fireplace flues, a suspended balcony and curved ceilings in two bedrooms, have been praised by the architecture community.

“A lot of contemporary homes are choppy, but right when you open the front door, you can see right through the home to the pool and on to the backyard,” Simmons previously told CandysDirt.com.

Some of Dallas’ priciest homes and transactions are in the Park Cities area, which includes Highland Park and University Park. Earlier this month, an 8,500-square-foot Highland Park mansion at 3616 Crescent Avenue hit the market at $32 million, making it the most expensive listing in the area. In University Park, a 14,000-square-foot home at 6920 Vassar Avenue was Texas’ most expensive new listing in June, carrying a price tag of $20.5 million. 

Real estate is a big part of the Real Housewives universe. Two Douglas Elliman agents in New York are appearing on the small screen this fall. Erin Lichy is part of the cast of a “Real Housewives of New York” reboot, and Kelly Killoren Bensimon is in a “RHONY” spin-off coming to Peacock.
