Yes it’s true – NFL superstar Rob Gronkowski, tight end for the New England Patriots, has listed his waterfront luxury home in the exclusive gated community of Westshore Yacht Club in Tampa. Last year, Gronk inked a 6-year, $54 million contract extension.
Described by the press as Gronk’s “party house”, he purchased the home just over a year ago, in August of 2012 for $1.6 million, and is now attempting to flip it for $2.4 million. I guess the $54 mil just wasn’t enough so he decided to try his hand at real estate flipping. (I’m teasing – I’m a huge Miami Dolphins fan so I’ll take every chance I can get to take a little stab at the Pats. 3-0 baby!) Interestingly, this home has a football history, and was previously owned by NFL football player Derrick Ward.
On top of that $2.4 million price tag, the new owners will have to pay for a membership to Westshore Yacht Club as follows: $1,434.50 semi-annual Master Association dues; $3,422.93 annual Bay Club membership; $1,000.00 one-time Master Association assessment due at closing; $108 monthly WYC Marina fees. However, the home does come fully furnished and with 2 jet skis – a steal really!
