EATONTON - Tex and Diane McIver’s life here on the ranch must have been splendid.
The spacious main house is elegant yet comfortable. Steps from the back door is a shimmering salt-water pool. Behind that is the guest house, dubbed the “Noddin’ Down Saloon.” The wine cellar, on the bottom level of the Noddin’ Down, is larger than many dwellings.
The 85-acre property is partly wooded, with rolling pastures, ponds and garden areas. Inside is a vast trove of jewelry, artwork, furniture, crystal, china - and also some oddball collectibles. It’s all being auctioned and sold this weekend and the court will direct the proceeds.
Diane McIver was 63 when she died. Her husband is in prison, probably for the rest of his life, for killing her.
