They are some of the biggest names in football, and they have some of the biggest houses in America to match their huge paychecks! As the fans get ready for the highly-anticipated Super Bowl XLVI rematch between the New England Patriots and the New York Giants on Sunday, February 5th, we go inside the most opulent homes in the NFL.
NFL Career: New England Patriots (2000-present)
Tom Brady has plenty of room to house a fourth championship ring if he leads the Patriots to another victory. The New England quarterback and his supermodel wife, Gisele Bundchen have finally moved into their new custom, solar powered dream $20 million mansion. The home offers over 22,000 square feet with eight bedrooms, a six car garage, a resort like swimming pool, weight room, and let’s not forget, a wine cellar!!
It features two wings connected by a bridge and includes a nursery for their son Benjamin, who is 2 years old. The house even has an elevator! Which I guess could be needed looking at the size of that mansion!
They purchased the land in 2008 for $11 million and had plans drawn up to increase the size. Thankfully, money is no object for the young couple who are worth almost $90 million, thanks to her modeling and his NFL Contract with the New England Patriots.
NFL Career: New York Giants (2009- present)
6 foot-7, 304 pound- defensive lineman Chris Canty signed a six year, $42 million contract with the New York Giants in March of 2009. That May of the same year Chris purchased a 10,000 square foot mansion in Alpine, New Jersey. Check out the taste of this new home owner!!
This beautiful mansion is set on just under one acre, but it should does look like more! Canty paid $4.9 million for the new built home which includes five bedrooms, five bathrooms, two-story foyer, three car garage, gourmet kitchen, five fireplaces, a wet bar, home theater, library, a recreation room, a wine cellar, and let’s not forget to mention it comes with its own elevator! It’s got everything a football star could need, don’t you think?
NFL Career: New York Giants (1993-2007)
Strahan, former Superbowl champion and defensive end for the New York Giants, holds the franchise’s record for career sacks and is listed on the Top 100: NFL’ s Greatest Players. He can now be seen every football Sunday on FOX with other NFL Legends.
Strahan and ex-model Nicole Murphy have listed their beautiful Los Angeles home for $6.95 million. Located in an exclusively gated Brentwood community, the six bedroom, eight bathroom Mediterranean estate is masterfully designed with elegant contemporary appeal from head to toe. The home includes a master suite, large balcony, his/her baths and walk-in closets, as well as a steam/dual shower.
NFL Career: Dallas Cowboys (2005-present)
The Dallas Cowboys had a disappointing 2012 record, but at least All-Pro defensive end DeMarcus Ware has a palatial pad to go home to after their season was over. Ware recently listed his home for $2 million. Located in one of Dallas’ finest gated communities, the English style home maxes out a whooping 9,304 square feet of living space.
This lovely mansion features four living areas, numerous bonus rooms, a wine porch, seven fireplaces, a theater room, and a chef’s kitchen. A cushioned turf yard play area, ground level trampoline and putting-chipping green make the house any child or even sports star fans a dream home!!!
NFL Career: San Francisco 49ers (1973-1992), Kansas City Chiefs (1993-1994)
NFL Hall of Fame Joe Montana is offering a major discount on his Sonoma vacation retreat, a $14 million price cut! That’s the second big cut for the San Francisco 49ers family, considering the way the Niners were cut from the playoffs by the Giants in the NFC title game.
Now listed for a jaw-dropping $35 million, Montana’s Tuscan villa style estate sits on 500 acres nestled in the heart of the Napa wine country and boasts a 9,700 square foot, 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home with stone walls inside and out, marble floors and wood-beamed ceilings. Fitting for a sports hero, the grounds also include an equestrian center, a full sized basketball court, skeet shooting range, gym, pool and spa. Definitely a vacation spot for those living the Big Life!!
Imagine celebrating the SuperBowl party in one of this houses!! I know I would love it! Which one would you pick to celebrate your team’s next victory??!!
