Retired NFL Linebacker Takeo Spikes Bidding Farewell to Georgia Mansion

Longtime NFL linebacker Takeo Spikes might be leaving his home state for greener pastures. He’s selling his lovely mansion in Roswell, GA, for $2.5 million.

Sitting on over 2.5 football fields worth of property, the 13,000-square-foot mansion is a sight to behold. Every single space in this home is a snapshot of opulence and luxury. If there’s an amenity on your wish list, you will find it on this property.

Media room? Check. Game room with a wet bar? Check. Pool and spa complete with waterfalls? Check. Opulent outdoor kitchen under a cabana? Yep. Gym? Of course!

This mansion ticks all the boxes and even checks boxes we rarely see in homes.

Take the photography studio. After his long career in the NFL, Spikes became serious about photography, and his love of being behind the lens is a big part of his postgame life.

Any professional or aspiring shutterbug will appreciate the in-home photography studio. It’s an amenity that’s available in less than 50 homes currently on the market across the country.

And then there’s the master suite. The sheer size of the room is a statement in and of itself.

It includes a seating area situated right in front of a fireplace. There’s also a breakfast bar for the ultimate in luxury convenience. The master bath looks like a full-service spa, with a gigantic tub in the center and his-and-hers vanities. The walk-in closet resembles a posh clothing store, with spaces for every accessory—including plenty of valuable sneakers.

The living spaces on the main floor of the house display an abundance of design and style. It’s a perfect place to unwind with family and friends before retiring to the entertainment level.

That level features a game room that has a clublike vibe, with a full bar flanked by vibrant seating areas. You’ll also find a media room and a well-equipped gym.

Spikes, 42, was drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in 1998 and wound up playing for the Bengals and four other NFL squads over his 15-year professional career. He played in 219 games, and is one of only seven linebackers to have started over 200 games in the NFL. He’s also a newly minted member of the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame.
