Now that the Washington NFL team’s former third-string quarterback, Robert Griffin III, has a new team in a different city, it’s come time for him to unload the last thing still tying him to the DC area: his four-bedroom, six-bathroom mansion in a tony Loudoun County enclave.
Griffin’s house, located in the Creighton Farms gated community in Aldie, was listed earlier this week for $2,749,000. The quarterback purchased the house for nearly $2.5 million in 2013, following his successful rookie season.
Sitting on more than three acres, the house features a huge kitchen (with a backsplash currently appointed with a big sign reading “FAMILY”), a game room, theater, and heated outdoor pool with a waterfall at one end. The Creighton Farms community also includes a private golf course for residents. Jay Gruden, the head coach who benched Griffin last season, is a neighbor.
Griffin signed a two-year, $15 million contract on March 24 with the Cleveland Browns, one of the few teams that burn through more quarterbacks than Washington.
The house is listed by Century 21 New Millennium.
