Here’s a few fun Super Bowl facts for those football and real estate fans out there….
PAUL ALLEN, owner of the NFC champion Seattle Seahawks, is also a co-founder of Microsoft Corp., headquartered in the Seattle suburb of Redmond, Wash. But Allen probably feels right at home when he comes to the Bay Area, considering that he has a palatial home in Atherton. In 2013, Allen paid $27 million for a massive, 22,000-square-foot custom-built home in the San Mateo County town. The home has six bedroom suites and boasts luxury amenities such as a spa and a movie theater. A guest house with two bedroom suites and a kitchen is nearby, plus a swimming pool, a five-car garage, and a “house manager suite.” That’s in addition to the island Allen owns in Seattle, complete with six mansions, plus homes in New York City and southeastern France.
TOM BRADY, star quarterback of the AFC champion New England Patriots and San Mateo native, isn’t doing too poorly in the real estate game, either. The Curbed website in Boston tries to keep up with Brady’s frequent moves and sales: a penthouse in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood, a three-bedroom condo, a 22,000-square-foot castle in Los Angeles’ Brentwood neighborhood, and a 5.2-acre parcel in Brookline, Mass.
A HOMEOWNER in Glendale, Ariz., which is hosting this year’s Super Bowl, painted a Seahawks logo on his front lawn and sprayed his house down with the team colors. Ashtin Fitzwater told Fox Sports he grew up in Washington and is a Seahawks superfan, but he would like get few takers if he tried to sell the house in that condition, as Arizona is one of the 40 states with a plurality of Patriots fans.
