Houston Texans player buys Boca Raton home
NFL tight end scored waterfront house for 30% discount off original ask
Apparently undeterred by hurricanes, Houston Texas tight end CJ Fiedorowicz just picked up a luxury home in South Florida to spend his off seasons.
The NFL player paid $1.58 million for the five-bedroom, 4,374-square-foot house at 710 Northeast 69th Street, according to Douglas Elliman’s Joshua Gold. Gold represented Fiedorowicz, while Jason Abitbol of Miles Goldstein Real Estate represented the seller, Booster Internet Corp.
It hit the market in March 2016 for $2.3 million, and was on and off the market with different agents before it sold last week – at the time, listed for $1.6 million. The property sold furnished at a more than 30 percent discount off the original asking price.
The waterfront Boca Harbour home features Italian countertops with marble sinks, an Italian hardwood kitchen, vaulted ceilings, a second-floor loft, oversized bedrooms, a pool and Jacuzzi, and 52 feet of dock space on a canal that feeds into the Intracoastal Waterway, according to the listing.
Property records show the seller, controlled by Elie Berkovics, paid $700,000 for the property in 2015. Gold said the house was completed rebuilt in 2016.
“[Fiedorowicz] wanted a property he could walk into and not have to do anything,” Gold said.
The 26-year-old athlete was drafted by the Texans in 2014 and signed a three-year contract extension in August of this year.
A number of professional football players call South Florida their home, including recently retired NFL linebackers Stephen Tulloch and Jonathan Vilma.
