Former Pittsburgh Penguins player Phil Kessel isn’t the only local professional athlete with a big house for sale.
Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has listed his luxurious Hampton Township estate for $2,295,000 — and that’s at a discount. According to realtor.com, Roethlisberger has knocked $400,000 off the price since he first listed it in June.
The home is empty and unlike Kessel, who was traded to the Arizona Coyotes, Roethlisberger isn’t leaving Pittsburgh. The married father of three is building a home elsewhere in the area — although it’s hard to imagine a house more lavish than his former suburban abode.
The listing describes the Hampton home as “the ultimate entertaining complex.” It’s not hard to see why.
Situated on a gated 5-acre property, the eight-bedroom, seven-plus bathroom home’s amenities include a playroom with an indoor slide and rubber floors, plus a children’s library.
There’s a two-story gourmet kitchen, a wine cellar, game room and a home theater, which — unlike Kessel’s home — has more than one seat. But the standout feature has to be the room dedicated to a state-of-the-art golf simulator. Alas, there is no signed and framed poster of Mariah Carey in “Glitter” (points again to Phil!).
There’s also a pool with a swim-up bar, an outdoor kitchen, a basketball court, koi pond and fire pit. A six-car attached garage and a separate building for recreational vehicles round out the estate.
According to realtor.com, Roethlisberger bought the house (pre-marriage and children) in 2006 for $2.2 million.
