The Coolest Athlete Homes
Athletes are known for having some of the most extravagant and expensive homes on the market. Here are a few of the best:
Messi’s futuristic, sustainable house is one of the most unique in the world. Named “One-Zero Eco House,” the home is designed to be shaped like a soccer ball and includes features like a half grass/half solar roof and a massive pool on the right side of the house.
The Aussie golfer bought his house for just 4.5 million dollars in 1991, but recently listed it at a whopping 65 million dollars. The house is located in the exclusive Jupiter Island neighborhood of Florida. Norman, also known as “The Shark,” enjoys features that include a 17-car garage, gourmet kitchen, and a 5500 square foot lawn on which he built a putting green and sand bunker.
The Beckhams recently sold their central London mansion, but it still makes our list. Built in the 1880s, the 8 bedroom, 7 bathroom home was purchased by the family for 39.6 million dollars. After renovations, the home now includes a nail salon, secret entrances, a catwalk, and an underground tunnel that leads to a backyard garden.
Jeter’s 30,000 square foot home is located in the suburb of Tampa, Florida near where the Yankees play their spring training games. Known as “St. Jetersberg,” the 7 bedroom, 9 bathroom home includes a spa, multiple yacht decks, and two separate 3-car garages.
The recently retired Heat star may have been the third option in the “Big Three,” but his home is second to none. Bosh is a noted home collector, with mansions in Florida, Texas, and California. We chose to feature his Pacific Palisades home, priced around 9.5 million dollars. With a stunning balcony terrace and luxurious infinity pool, it’s easy to see why Bosh had to have it.
