Former New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes, beloved in Pittsburgh for his game-winning catch for the Steelers in Super Bowl XLIII, listed his three-bedroom Chester townhouse for $749,000 earlier this month — and he’s already got an offer, according to Trulia.
The home, on a tenth of an acre, was the market for 16 days before finding a buyer. Holmes, a former Buckeye who was released from the Jets in 2014 and then played less than a season for the Chicago Bears, bought it in 2013 for $760,000, records show. Property taxes are $17,579 a year, according to state records.
The 3,241-square-foot home has a large kitchen with high-end appliances, a wet bar with wine refrigerator and a central island open to the family room, a wood-paneled library with fireplace, a sunroom and a large finished lower level with wraparound bar, exercise room and full bathroom.
The Florida native, who has had some legal troubles over the years, also has his Palm Beach County ranch home on the market for $520,000, Realtor.com reports. That property features a screened-in pool and two-bedroom guesthouse.
