Former Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton is looking to score a sale of his home in Cincinnati.
Now that the longtime Bengal signal-caller has signed on with the Dallas Cowboys, he’s vacated the Ohio abode. The traditional-style residence is now available for $2.5 million, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported.
For Bengals fans, moving into a piece of sports history might be an added amenity.
Dalton purchased the place for $1.05 million in 2016—and scored a bargain in the process. The home had been on the market for over a year and was initially listed for $1,425,000.
While a sale at Dalton’s current asking price would be a big win, he did invest in a significant renovation, which may cut into his profit.
For the next owner, though, the turnkey option is a “buyer’s dream,” according to the listing details. The listing also notes that the home has been “impeccably designed and completely renovated.”
The charming home features five bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, and 5,654 square feet of living space. From the front of the house, a large, covered porch is spacious enough for some outdoor furniture. Inside, the formal living room with a fireplace is surrounded by built-in shelving.
A formal dining area features a chandelier and a bar cart. The stylish open kitchen includes an island, casual dining area, open shelving, and a herringbone backsplash.
The kitchen opens onto a family room and French doors that open to the backyard. An adjacent space includes a built-in desk.
Upstairs, the master bedroom has a walk-in closet and a large bathroom with separate shower, tub, and dual vanities. Most of the other bedrooms can be found on the second floor.
However, a guest bedroom and bath are located on the home’s lower level. That bottom floor also includes a game room and lounge area with a flat-screen TV.
Sharp-eyed fans may spot some sports memorabilia decorating the space. A yoga or exercise area with a mirrored wall is also set up.
Outside, a covered deck features a seating area with an outdoor fireplace and TV, as well as a grassy lawn. The property also includes a three-car garage.
Dalton, 32, was drafted by the Bengals in 2011, and starred as quarterback for nine seasons, making the Pro Bowl three times and reaching the playoffs four times. After his release from Cincy, he signed a one-year deal with the Cowboys worth up to $7 million.
Here’s a bonus for the Texas native. He has no need to go house-hunting, since he already owns property in Dallas. Dalton has roots in the area, as he starred in college at Texas Christian University, in nearby Fort Worth.
Drew Homan with Coldwell Banker West Shell-Hyde Park holds the listing.
