Conservative media personality Glenn Beck is selling his massive home in Westlake, TX, for $5.9 million.
The mansion’s sale comes as Beck’s company struggles through rounds of layoffs and speculation that Beck is ready to pull up stakes and leave Dallas, TX, for Los Angeles.
Built in 2004, the home has six bedrooms, six full bathrooms, and three half-bathrooms and more than 9,000 square feet of living space. It’s stylish and surprisingly subdued throughout, with touches like cut stacked stone, French brown wide-plank hand-scraped floors, and a lovely gourmet kitchen.
The refined, restrained home is surprising, considering the brash on-air personality of its seller.
The home sits on a grassy, green 3.5-acre golf course lot in the exclusive Vaquero community and includes a pool, spa, cabana, fire pit lounge area, guesthouse and even its own garage for golf carts. The listing also touts the property’s "extensive security."

According to The Daily Beast, Beck’s media company, Mercury Radio Arts, which operates The Blaze, has been plagued by a declining audience and rounds of employee layoffs. The article opines that the operation, which once brought in $90 million a year, is on its "last legs," and that some of his employees think Beck is planning to close up his business headquarters in Dallas and move the operation to smaller offices in L.A.
But Beck recently took to the airwaves to offer another explanation for the sale of his home.
“I am putting my home up for sale because I fear this economy, as we are headed for trouble and I don’t want to be sitting with a big huge house,” Beck said.
According to the Dallas Morning News, Beck moved to the Dallas area and set up his own multimedia studio in 2011, prior to his departure from Fox News.
