Miami Dolphins linebacker Kristian “Kiko” Alonso just paid $1.45 million for a home in the Harbour Inlet neighborhood of Fort Lauderdale, The Real Deal has learned.

Alonso, 26, who signed a $28.9 million contract with the Dolphins last year, bought a modern, four-bedroom, five-bathroom house at 2642 Barbara Drive on Monday.

James Hoffman, president and broker for Heritage International Realty, confirmed the sale. Hoffman had the listing and Alonso’s brother, Carlos Alonso of Avant International Realty, represented Alonso.

The 3,093-square-foot home, built in 1953, was listed for $1.495 million. The sale price equates to $469 per square foot.

“[Alonso] loved the ultra-modern look, the quality of materials and the great location,” Hoffman said. “It’s a little hidden gem neighborhood.”

Property Records show the seller was M100 Holdings LLC, linked to Sofmak Holdings, which is led by Milic Novovik. The home was last purchased for $710,000 in 2015.

Alonso previously played for the Buffalo Bills and the Philadelphia Eagles, before signing his four-year contract with the Dolphins that lasts through the 2020 season, according to published reports.

Hoffman founded Heritage International Realty as a luxury residential boutique firm in Wellington in 2016. He was previously president and broker for Opulence International Realty, where he created a development division and a sports and entertainment division.

At Heritage, he now has seven agents and $84 million in listings, from Fort Lauderdale to Jupiter, he said.

Sports celebrities come and gone in Broward County in recent years. Former NFL cornerback Asante Samuel sold his Southwest Ranches estate for $7.5 million in 2015. The same year, Cleveland Browns player Karlos Dansby and his wife Tynesha Dansby listed their Southwest Ranches estate for $4.39 million.
