As 2013 came to an end one major piece of Bend Oregon Real Estate News quietly made headlines when Drew Bledsoe, the former Patriots, and Pro Bowl quarterback, listed his home, located at the Highlands in Broken Top for close to $10 million dollars.
Fit For a King
Bledsoe has been a part of Bend Oregon since 2004 when he purchased the land that his house was built for $750,000, and over the years his Janet Jarvis designed, 14,821 square foot home, has been designed into a luxurious “palace” that’s literally fit for a king, or a Super Bowl champion.
What You Get For $10 Million Dollars
If you’re thinking about purchasing Drew Bledsoe’s home, it sits on close to 11 acres of beautiful Bend Oregon Real Estate and features many awesome finishes throughout the home including: 7 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms, an expansive living room with a huge fireplace, sitting room, close to three utility rooms, office, den, breakfast nook and plenty of space for formal dining but best of all, a wine room that’s temperature controlled and is the perfect space for all of your vintage wines.
Busy Since His Retirement
Drew Bledsoe was one of the best quarterbacks of his generation and upon his retirement many people wondered what the NFL great would do next with his life, the answer is wine. Bledsoe has been busy producing wine since he retired and his Doubleback Winery, located in the Walla Walla Valley has been a huge success and hit thanks to Bledsoe’s name and his partnership with his friend winemaker Chris Figgins.
Drew Bledsoe’s home will most likely sell quick as we move forward into 2014 since there will without a doubt be plenty of people who are eager to purchase this piece of Bend Oregon Real Estate and football history.
