Maurkice Pouncey wasted no time exiting Pittsburgh after announcing on February 12 that he was retiring from the NFL after a 10-year run as Big Ben’s center. Here it is early March, and Pouncey’s suburban Pittsburgh house is empty and on the market for $860,000.
Purchased by Pouncey for $669,500 in 2013, the possible Pro Football Hall of Famer is looking to make a few bucks in a hot housing market. The big selling feature here has to be the hot tub room off the back of the house. This unique feature should make this a quick sell, especially if Pittsburgh gets a snowstorm over the next couple of weeks and prospective buyers walk in and see a party hot tub room waiting to happen.
Upgrade the TV, install a speaker system, some LED lighting, tint the windows, and you have a wild party room ready to go.
From Pouncey’s realtor Dana Demarion with Cowden Creek Realty:
What a beautiful custom built home situated on 1.25 acres! So many gorgeous upgrades. Brand new Link Defense Water System installed, all new piping, theater room with beverage center, attached jacuzzi room with big glass windows, finished basement, office with cabinetry, high ceilings, oversized back porch with super views, 2 sided fireplace in spa-like MBR, dual stairways, 4 car garage, fenced in pet area, intercom system, HW floors and granite countertops, and much more! This home gives you your own private oasis! Come check out all of the amazing amenities!
In other words, this is the perfect house for a guy on the Steelers roster who has young kids and doesn’t want to blow all of his NFL money on a house in suburban Pittsburgh he won’t be calling home for the next 20 years.
The only issue: it’s a 16-mile haul across town to the Steelers training facility.
Mortgage: Realtor.com sets it at a manageable $3,000/month before lawn service. Not bad.
