Marc Bulger hasn’t played in the NFL since 2009 when he finished his career with a 1-7 season. Before the 2007 season, Bulger signed a six-year, $62 million deal with the Rams guaranteeing $27 million. In March of 2007, possibly sensing he was about to become a very, very wealthy NFL quarterback, Bulger bought an 11,587 sq. ft. St. Louis mansion that was built in 1930.
That giant rock structure — five bedrooms, four full bathrooms; 5 half-baths — just hit the market for $7.5 million, according to our real estate sources. When it comes to NFL quarterback houses, Bulger is sitting on one of the biggest, most expensive houses in the Athlete Real Estate game. David Carr is still trying to sell his house with a 10-car garage, but it’s only 8,000 sq. ft.
According to Bulger’s realtor:
Fantastic estate located in Huntleigh on 6+ acres with breathtaking views. This Maritz & Young French style stone beauty has recently been enhanced with many updates. There are exquisite architectural details throughout this magnificent home. The first floor features terrazzo floors w/a circular staircase, extensive decorative plaster moldings, butler’s pantry with state of the art appliances would be any cooks dream. The second floor has plenty of bedrooms including a spacious master suite & guest /maids quarters. The third floor has a large playroom with ample storage. The lower level is ideal for entertaining with a gorgeous wooden bar, fireplace & wine cellar. Sitting poolside gives a fantastic view of the lake & fountain.
The place has 22 rooms. Seriously. I took the virtual tour and have to think that Marc got tired of getting up in the morning and thinking he had been transported to France. This guy went to college at West Virginia and grew up in Pittsburgh. This place is a little flamboyant.
Other Highlights of Marc’s Massive Mansion:
• Did you see the walk-in closets? Look at all the room you’ll have for button-up shirts
• 4-car garage; barn and stable
• In-ground pool to lay back and romanticize about being rich
Mortgage: $30,000/mo. before you pay for landscapers, window washers & maid service
