During football season, America reacquaints themselves with their favorite NFL teams and players. We know their positions and their stats. We might even know how large their salaries are. But what do their lives look like off the field?
Pretty freaking gorgeous. We rounded up the best of the best for you scrolling pleasure. If there were a Super Bowl for interior design, these NFL players’ homes would surely be the winners.
Considered one of the greatest wide receivers in the history of the Pittsburgh Steelers, this Super Bowl champ also has a passion for great design. His Atlanta dream home, which he built from the ground up, is a sophisticated blend of classical and contemporary style.
New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning recently put his Hoboken, NJ condo up for sale. With its antique mushroom wood ceiling and expansive windows, we’d happily live wake up each day in this pad. Well, maybe if a few digits were knocked off the $5.2 million asking price.
Seattle Seahawks frontman Russell Wilson is the one who gets to wake up to a stunning view of Lake Washington every day. His Mediterranean-style mansion in Bellevue is a dreamland of lush textiles and ornate architectural details.
Apparently, lavish style comes with the territory of being a Seahawk. Former running back Marshawn Lynch’s waterfront retreat in the Bay Area seems like the perfect place to retire.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback, Carson Palmer has a more minimal contemporary aesthetic when it comes to his home. This entertainer’s paradise takes indoor-outdoor living to another level.
Last but certainly not least, comes the Mediterranean masterpiece Tom Brady once shared with his model wife Gisele Bündchen and their kids. Unlike the ultra-luxurious, sprawling palaces of many football players, the pair went for a more homey feel. That is six bedrooms, a pond, a giant swimming pool, and 14,000 square feet of hominess. We’ll take this space as our Super Bowl champion any day.
