If you’re still smarting over the fact that you weren’t one of the three winners of the $1.6 billion Powerball jackpot, this nugget of news probably won’t help.

Tom Hicks, former owner of the Texas Rangers and Dallas Stars, has sold his $100 million mansion in North Dallas to billionaire financier Andy Beal, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Sale of the 25-acre, 28,00-square-foot home -- also called the Crespi Estate -- closed on Friday, reported the DMN’s Steve Brown, who said it was the biggest home sale in Dallas history.

The property on Walnut Hill Lane has a modest seven bedrooms, but the master suite is 3,000 square feet and there’s a two-story guesthouse, plus a separate entertaining building with a theater.

The 63-year-old Beal is a Baylor dropout, but self-taugh math genius, according to Forbes, which ranks him as No. 42 on its latest list of 400 billionaires. They calculated his net worth of $10.5 billion, but that was probably before he bought the Hicks estate.
