Following a trade to the Indianapolis Colts, former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz is letting go of his New Jersey nest.
The Woodstown, NJ, spread on 11 acres is now available for $1.7 million.
Wentz’s exit follows on the heels of Doug Pederson‘s departure. The fired head coach recently placed his Moorestown, NJ, home on the market for $2.7 million.
The quarterback purchased his place for $950,000, shortly after being picked second overall in the 2016 NFL Draft. He’s clearly hoping to net profit on his investment for his stint in South Jersey. The property is marketed as “totally remodeled”—which is probably what justifies the sharp uptick in price.
The listing notes there’s a 23-acre farm adjacent to the property that’s also up for grabs, if a buyer wants to shell out an additional $299,000. The available acreage explains the vast amounts of land surrounding the home, with nary a neighbor in sight.
Wentz’s modern mountain-style abode features beamed ceilings, walls of glass, wide-plank flooring, and sliding barn doors.
With 7,408 square feet of living space, the layout includes five bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms.
The open, airy living and dining space features a large entryway, as well as a staircase with custom banisters. It leads to the living area with built-ins, and a large kitchen, with stainless-steel appliances, a copper farmhouse sink, and a big granite island with seating.
A dining area adjoins the kitchen and features a stylish overhead light fixture. A large family room includes a floor-to-ceiling stone-surround fireplace, with access outside.
The owner’s suite opens to a deck, and comes with an attached, spalike bathroom, with a separate rain shower-head and soaking tub. Four more bedrooms offer private bathrooms and closet space.
The layout also includes an office, with built-in shelves and a fireplace.
On the lower level, the space has been tricked out with a custom bar, a lounge area with TV, and billiards area. Also on this level is a gym and a deluxe home theater that seats 10.
An additional garage space has been converted into another fitness area, with an indoor pool, a game room loft, work center, and a bonus hunting room with walk-in safe. If hunting isn’t your passion, this area could be turned back into garage space. In addition, there’s a three-car garage.
The lower level walks out to a terrace, outdoor kitchen, heated pool, and views of the pond.
The energy-efficient space includes geothermal heating, zoned AC, and a southern exposure, which all add up to low utility costs, according to the listing.
For those who commute to the city, the location is 30 minutes to Philadelphia sports centers.
Wentz, 28, had an up-and-down, five-season run in Philly. He was injured late in the season in 2017, which led to the backup Nick Foles taking the reins, and leading the team to an improbable Super Bowl victory over the New England Patriots.
After a disastrous 2020 season, Wentz seems to be hoping to revive his career with the Colts.
