Buy Rudi Johnson’s Coral Gables Home — $2.49 Million

If anyone is looking to drop some serious coin on a nice home in Florida, former Bengals running back Rudi Johnson is trying to move his Coral Gables estate for a cool $2.49 million.
You probably remember Rudi for his solid tenure in the mid-2000s, where he logged a couple thousand-yard seasons (and witnessed Carson Palmer’s first catastrophic knee injury) before falling off a cliff.
According to public records, Rudi purchased the home in 2010 for $1.3 million, and has oscillated between selling and keeping for a couple years now.
Information from Rudi’s realtor:

Lowest price per SF in Cocoplum! Freshly painted, with updates and impact windows. On a small, Cul de Sac. Three way split plan for privacy! Grand entry foyer and formal dining open to courtyard terrace. Living room and updated kitchen w/SS appliances, breakfast open to terrace overlooking pool. Private master suite w/sitting area/den, wrap around terrace, spacious bath suite and walk in closet. Pool level Family/Media, Bar, Cabana bath and covered Terrace. 3-Car garage. Lot 16,300 Sq Ft

Your first expenditure: hiring an interior designer. Seriously. Take a look through the gallery — it looks like Rudi had his grandma decorate the place.

Additional highlights of the home:

Mortgage: Around $12,000 a month not counting the designer you need to hire.
