Seven years and five relists later, longtime NFL quarterback Drew Blesdoe has finally sold his home in Oregon. The picturesque property in the town of Bend has just been sold for $ 5.6 million, a significant drop from the $ 9.95 million originally targeted.
Bledsoe - a Washington native who won a Super Bowl with the Patriots in 2002 - took the country in 2004 for $ 750,000 and built the custom compound four years later.
The property spans more than 10 hectares in a gated community and focuses on a stone villa of almost 15,000 square meters. This is not the only draw. There's also a swimming pool, two spas, a grass sports field, a putting green, an attached four-car garage, and a free-standing three-car garage.
A park-like courtyard approaches the house, which offers spacious living spaces under dramatic wooden beams. The large room leads to a window-lined lounge with a view of the Cascades. Other highlights include a rotunda-style breakfast corner and a stone slab dining room.
Seven bedrooms, 14 bathrooms and high-quality amenities such as a stone wine cellar, a cinema and a basketball court complete the interior. Outside, a number of terraces, lounges and dining areas characterize the entertainer's back yard.
Bledsoe spent 14 years in the NFL, scoring two Super Bowls and four Pro Bowls: three with the Patriots and one with the Bills. The patriots turned their franchise with him at the top and the team voted him into the Hall of Fame in 2011.
Justin Lavik and Betsey Little of Cascade Sotheby's International Realty held the listing.
