Former NFL All-Pro Champ Bailey has put up his European-style home in a no-reserve auction.
The stone mansion in Atlanta went on the market for $2.9 million in November. The 10,400-square-foot abode is now being offered to the highest bidder through Concierge Auctions.
Although there’s no reserve price, bidders must put down a $100,000 deposit and show proof of funds. Bidding begins online in late February.
The Georgia native purchased the home in 2014 for $2.6 million. He’s apparently trading this home for a larger one to fit his “growing family.”
Although Bailey needs more space, this home offers plenty of room for most families. The layout includes six bedrooms, six bathrooms, and two half-baths. The old-world interior features handcarved millwork, stone and hardwood floors, seven fireplaces, cathedral ceilings, and wood beams, along with modern amenities.
Luxe amenities include an elevator, game room, and kitchen with breakfast bar. The master suite comes with dual closets, a coffee bar, and bath with dual vanities.
Other perks include a large dining room, wine cellar, media room, gym, massage room and spa, wet bar with seating, and rec room. Outdoors, there’s a covered stone patio, living room, and fireplace.
Located in the exclusive community of Tiller Walk in Sandy Springs, the home is just 20 minutes from downtown Atlanta.
The 40-year-old first starred in college, at the University of Georgia. The cornerback was drafted by the Washington Redskins in 1999, and went on to have a 15-year career in the NFL. He will likely wind up in the Hall of Fame. He retired in 2014, and now bills himself as a “strategic investor,” according to Twitter.
