Arizona Cardinals linebacker and former Miami Dolphins player Karlos Dansby just sold his Southwest Ranches home for $3.2 million after about two years on the market.

Property records show Dansby and his wife Tynesha sold the 12,300-square-foot mansion at 16850 Stratford Court to Katie and Michael Meyer. It marks the highest sale in Southwest Ranches so far this year, listing agent Ben Moss told The Real Deal.

The six-bedroom home hit the market in 2015 with Coldwell Banker for $4.4 million, which means it just sold at a 27 percent discount from the original asking price. Moss took over the listing last year at $4 million, and reduced it to $3.7 million, according to Realtor.com.

The Dansbys paid $3.4 million for the home in 2010, which means they sold it at a loss.

The home was built in 2005, and features a 10-seat theater, billiard room, card room, chef’s kitchen, and walk-in pantry and sits on 2.35 acres with a pool, Jacuzzi, basketball court, outdoor kitchen and fireplace.

“This was a very particular house. There’s wallpaper on the ceiling in all the rooms. It’s very ornate and decked out,” Moss said. “It took a special buyer to be able to go for something like that.”

Dansby played for the Cardinals before joining the Dolphins in 2010. After leaving the Dolphins in 2013, Dansby played again for the Cardinals and the Cleveland Browns. “Living here wasn’t part of the long-term plan anymore,” Moss said.

The west Broward neighborhood is a “Who’s Who” of professional athletes. The biggest sale was to former NFL cornerback Asante Samuel in 2015 for $7.5 million. Moss also brokered that deal with Brown Harris Stevens agent Caryn Botknecht.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson also calls Southwest Ranches home.

A previous version of this story incorrectly identified the difference between the original asking price and the sale price. The home sold at a 27 percent discount from the original asking price.
