So I have this game I play when a real estate listing comes up in the BC email. I don’t look at the tax records until I guess who owns the house. Thought for sure this was Peyton Manning’s house in Englewood, Colorado. Wrong. This one belongs to John Lynch and it all makes sense now. John’s done with Colorado now that he has that longterm job with the 49ers. Time to sell off the 8,718 sq. ft. monster.
It can be yours for $2,990,000. John paid $2.2 million for this place way back in 2004, so it’s not like he’s out here trying to rip you off.
There are several outdoor living spaces and patios for enjoying the tranquil setting backing to the lake. Floor to ceiling windows in the great room set the stage for beautiful natural light. Today’s desire for openness between kitchen and living areas is maximized by the thoughtful floorplan layout. Beautiful main floor master and sitting room with a fireplace, ample walk in closet & master bath. Main floor study provides handsome built-ins and fireplace. Upstairs for three addition bedroom suites, accessed by either front or back staircases. Basement is for entertaining, exercise, two guest suites or choosing the perfect bottle of wine from the climate controlled wine cellar.
It has to be said: Where’s the pool? No way I’m going to the gated community pool each time I want to cool off in the summer.
Other highlights of John’s Colorado house that he’s moving out of for the Bay Area:
• 5 bedrooms, 6 baths
• You’re going to live in the Buell Mansion neighborhood…E-L-I-T-E…and I didn’t even look up the Buell Mansion neighborhood.
• The realtor is calling that a lake in the backyard…that’s a pond full of runoff
• 3.2 miles to Whole Foods
• Just 5 miles to the Penthouse Club
Mortgage: You’re looking at a cool $11,400/mo. before taxes, maid service and that pool you’re putting in
