So you didn’t think NASCAR drivers made enough money to live in posh estates? Wrong. Ever heard of David Gilliland? The guy has zero wins, eight top tens and two poles over nine years racing the Sprint Cup cars. The guy hasn’t had a top-five finish since 2011. However, the guy makes cash.
He’s earned $27,771,320 since breaking into Sprint Cup in 2006. That allows him to enjoy some of the finer things in life like a 5,000 sq. ft. North Carolina estate.
According to his realtor:
THIS MULTI-FACETED LUXURY ESTATE SITUATED ON LAKE NORMAN IS LOCATED LESS THAN AN HOUR FROM CHARLOTTE AND A CONVENIENT DRIVE TO NC MOUNTAINS, WINSTON-SALEM, GREENSBORO, AND RALEIGH AREAS. APPROXIMATELY 4 HOURS TO NC AND SC COASTAL REGIONS.
HISTORIC, GATED, FENCED, PASTURES, POOL, GUEST HOUSE HAS 2 BEDROOMS, GAME & EXERCISE ROOMS, INTERIOR RACQUETBALL/ BASKETBALL COURT PLUS EXTERIOR BASKETBALL COURT , 3 STOCKED PONDS, HELICOPTER PAD, 2 GARAGE SHOPS, PUTTING GREENS, NINE HOLE GOLF THROUGHOUT THE 66 ACRES, WINE CAVE, WITH FIRE PIT, 3 STALL BARN, ATTACHED GARAGE HAS OFFICE, WET BAR AND LIVING SPACE
Seriously, a NASCAR guy you’ve never heard of is selling this place. I’m pretty impressed he was able to afford it in the first place.
Other Highlights of Gilliland’s Estate:
• 4 beds, 5 baths
• Lowered the asking by $600,000 in April
• Look at that driveway; very estately
• Look at the concrete in the garage; spotless & painted
Mortgage: $20,000/mo. before taxes and someone to cut the grass
