Another home has changed hands in Highland Park's golden corridor along Exall Lake — this one at the bargain price of about $12 million. 

Jimmy Westcott just closed on the sale of her 14,000-square-foot mansion at 4850 Preston Road to an undisclosed buyer. The house, listed by Allie Beth Allman, sits south of the Dallas Country Club and Highland Park Village and just north of the estate of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.

In one of those only-in-Texas tales, the mansion briefly belonged to former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's daughter-in-law, Diane. More on that below.

When Highland Park was first developed, this land between Exall Lake and Preston Road was set aside for marquee properties.

Today, the strip is home to developer Harlan Crow, who recently added a 77-car underground parking garage to his estate. Oilman Ed Cox (as in Southern Methodist University's Edwin L. Cox School of Business) has an indoor tennis court and an indoor swimming pool. Financier John Muse is next-door neighbor to the Westcott place. His English Palladian house is on the tax rolls for $48.6 million.
