Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has settled into a cream-colored, four-bedroom stucco house near Leesburg that he rents with his fiancée, Rebecca Liddicoat, according to neighbors. Griffin and Liddicoat moved into the River Creek development over the summer, a few of the neighbors confirmed in phone interviews today. “He’s very quiet,” said one woman, “but he’s very friendly. He and his fiancée seem to be homebodies. They are very good neighbors.” She said that after Sunday’s victory over the New Orleans Saints, some of the neighbors tied balloons to Griffin’s mailbox. Otherwise, they leave him alone.
“He exercises out front, pulling tires down the road to build up his strength,” said a man, who seemed in awe of this feat. “He plays football with the children. He’s very approachable but likes his privacy. His fiancée is a lovely person with a cute little dog.” When we asked what kind of dog, he laughed, “I don’t know, except that it’s small.”
A female neighbor said there are 23 houses on the street, which she described as “very residential, with mostly families.” She said the development was built in 2000.
“It’s a pleasure to have him in the neighborhood. We’re trying to give him his space.”
Griffin rents the house from a former MicroStrategy executive who moved to California.
