LATimes: For the fifth times in as many years, Adrian Peterson is trying to shed his Texas mansion. The palatial estate just hit the market for $4.5 million — a whopping $4 million shy of his original asking price and roughly half a million short of what the running back paid for the place in 2013.
The property spans nine acres in the Woodlands, a master-planned community north of Houston, about a two-hour drive from Palestine, where Peterson grew up and played high school football.
Gated and landscaped, the 10,500-square-foot mansion is approached by a dramatic motor court with a fountain at the center. Inside are seven bedrooms, 13 bathrooms and a handful of formal common spaces and posh amenities. A sweeping wrought-iron staircase anchors the foyer, while crown molding rings a living room with a wall of glass and one of five fireplaces. Elsewhere, there’s a brick kitchen, two-story library, wine cellar, movie theater and game room with a wet bar.
Serious question, there are homes in the Woodlands worth $4 million?! Really? And if Adrian just knocked off $4 million, that means he originally listed it for $8 MILLION?!?! LOL.
Look, I’m not in real estate biz but there’s just no fucking way a single property in the Woodlands, residential or commercial, is worth that type of money. So, the fact Adrian even bought the house to begin with is suspect. Not to mention, when he bought the home he was still playing for the Minnesota Vikings?
If you’re going to purchase a home to live in only 6 months out of the year, why in the hell would you buy one in the Woodlands?! Why not Austin? Or on the lake somewhere?! Or better yet, Hawaii?
Just makes no sense. And the fact that now SEVEN years later he’s having to sell it for $500k less than his original purchase price is comical.
Either way, this whole fiasco is really showing why Adrian ended up at Oklahoma.
PS: My favorite picture from his home is the library:
I didn’t take Adrian to be much of a reader but now it’s confirmed — Adrian Peterson, 100% is not a literature guy.
And here’s some more picture of the home for anyone interested in luxury Woodlands’ real estate:
