If you were hoping to be able to live in the former house of popular NFL announcer Joe Buck, it may be too late.
He purchased a different $4.5 million mansion in Ladue, MO about six months ago and is now selling his original home. According to St. Louis Business Journal, their new property is actually the most expensive residential property sale in the past year of the region. Check out the photos of the home here.
Now he is moving on from the ranch-style house he has spent seven years in with his wife and two boys. The couple has been living there since they were first engaged. It is also in the Ladue area.
Joe Buck’s property is 7,422 square-foot in St. Louis. It is a six-bedroom, six-and-a-half bathroom estate. It has a total of 15 different rooms.
According to Outkick, the property is pending with an asking price of $3,295,000. It already appears to have a buyer as well after only one week on the market.
The house has a number of interesting features like a pool, decked-out cabana, high ceilings, and is tucked away on six private acres. The basement is filled with a collection of sports memorabilia. That includes a No. 99 Wayne Gretzky jersey, a No. 99 John Smoltz baseball jersey, as well as framed photographs and other decorations.
Unlike other high-priced homes, the former home of Joe Buck was meant to feel comforting and homey.
“When people walk into the house, I want them to feel like they can actually sit down and not just look at the furniture. I didn’t want a show house,” interior designer Sandra Long said to St. Louis Magazine, according to New York Post.
