Laveranues Coles once said to the New York Times, “Why is my house so filthy?” The former NFL wide receiver wasn’t talking about dirt on the floors of his 20,000 square foot St. Johns, Florida home. It was more of a bragging statement.
So imagine the shock today when our friends at Realtor.com mentioned that Coles is selling his filthy house that was built to be his forever sanctuary. According to the Times, he paid $8 million to build it. Now it’s on the market for $5.9 million.
Can Coles, who hasn’t played in the NFL since 2009, get $5.9 million for a house that’s in the middle of nowhere and 25 miles from downtown Jacksonville? Is there someone in the market for a 5 bedroom, 9 bath house on 6+ acres surrounded by forest? Why sell your filthy house now?
