Lee Trevino, a Texas native who rose from poverty to become one of the world’s great golfers, is selling his North Dallas home for $13 million.

The 10,000-square-foot English country-style house sits on five acres in one of the Dallas area’s posh neighborhoods.

Trevino, 74, and his wife are looking to downsize and do a little traveling, said Penny Cook, their Realtor at Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty.

The Trevinos have owned the house since their children were young and will most likely stay in the Dallas area, Cook said.

Inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1981, Trevino was known for his affable, chatty style on the course. He would even talk during his own swing at a tournament.

Trevino turned professional in 1960 and won his last championship in 2000 on the Champions Tour for golfers age 50 and older (formerly the Senior PGA Tour).
