While he will not play any further role in the Patriots’ quest for a fourth Super Bowl, Rob Gronkowski is finding something else to excel in. After originally purchasing the 4,700 square-foot South Tampa mansion in 2012, Gronk officially sold the massive home for $2.08 million, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
And per the Times, the amount that the injured Patriots tight end received in his sale was nearly half of a million dollars more than he paid to buy the house in the first place.
Located in the Westshore Yacht Club, the sprawling home has a few crazy amenities (including a “wood-paneled elevator, custom-built fish tanks and a casino-style security system.”) Interestingly, Gronk decided that he wanted to hold onto one particular item: the 26.5-foot speedboat. The boat wasn’t listed on the home’s furnishings.
Gronk hasn’t been heard from too much since he tore his ACL and MCL on December 8th against the Cleveland Browns, though he did make one notable appearance during the Holidays. Making another half million (or close to it) is a nice way for him to cap off 2013, which was otherwise a year to forget for the talented 24-year-old.
And one of the many outrageous views from the interior:
