DALLAS (AP) — Need space to practice roundhouse kicks and fist-enforced Texas justice? You’re in luck: Chuck Norris’ spacious Dallas home, complete with a gym featuring memorabilia from his “Walker, Texas Ranger” television series, is on the market.

The Mediterranean ranch-style home in a tony neighborhood of Dallas also was the on-screen residence of Cordell Walker, the roundhouse-kicking Texas Ranger who battled villainy at every turn.

Norris portrayed Walker in the CBS series that ran for eight seasons. It ended in 2001, but lives on in syndication.

The 7,362-square-foot home is listed for $1.2 million. Along with the weight room, it has four bedrooms, several bathrooms and a theater.

Listing agent Rogers Healy says Norris and his wife have homes elsewhere and want to “downsize.”

The woman who as a child was the basis for the Beatles song "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" is gravely ill. It was thought by many at the time that the psychedelic song from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band was a paean to LSD because of the initials in the title, but it was actually based on a drawing that John Lennon's young son Julian brought home from school.
