New York Jets quarterback Brett Favre has listed his four-bedroom house in Ashwaubenon, Wis. -- a vestige from his days as a star quarterback for the Green Bay Packers -- for $475,000.
We know we're incredibly late to the party on this one, but it's hard to resist writing about someone as dynamic and noteworthy as Favre.
The whole world knows that Favre (shown here in "There's Something About Mary") retired from the Packers on March 4, and then un-retired on August 4, getting himself traded by the Packers to the currently 7-3 New York Jets. And while Favre has not purchased a New York-area home yet (and at age 39, may never), he has decided to sever all ties with Green Bay, listing his modestly priced house in the Green Bay suburb.
Many news outlets and blogs have written about Favre's listing, but for our money, the Green Bay Press-Gazette wrote one of the finer synopses, last month. Features in the 2,928-square-foot ranch-style house include three baths, a first-floor laundry, a formal dining room with a fireplace and a wet bar, an eat-in kitchen with granite countertops, and an attached, three-car garage, according to public records and listing information. Favre's house sits on a 0.42-acre (18,295-square-foot) property, according to public records.
Records show that Favre paid $416,000 in August 2005 to purchase the house from a salesman for a company that sells forklift assemblies to auto recyclers.
Favre's principal residence continues to be his 450-acre-plus farm in Hattiesburg, Miss.
