Retired professional football player and former University of Miami star Vinny Testaverde called time-out after listing his lakefront house near Tampa last year for $4.999 million.
Testaverde and his wife, Mitzi, took their house off the market in April, spent about $1 million on a thorough renovation of the house’s lower level, and relisted the property with the same asking price, according to Evan Pedone, an agent of brokerage firm Engel & Völkers Madeira Beach.
Pedone, the new listing agent, also told Mansion Global that the Testaverdes want a smaller home because they raised their three children at the house near Tampa, and two of them have moved out.
The three-story, 12,700-square-foot mansion comes with a dock, a tennis court and a basketball court, among other amenities.
The interior features include a wine cellar, game room and dance studio, plus built-in technology that repels mosquitos.
The residence also has a large gym and a golf simulator on the second floor of the guest house.
Testaverde, 54, paid a developer $4.5 million to build the house in the exclusive Dolce Vita gated community in 2007, the year he retired as a National Football League player.
