Phil Simms and 930 Old Mill Road in Franklin Lakes

Former New York Giants quarterback Phil Simms is once again looking to sell his 20-acre estate in Northern New Jersey.

Simms, who weighed in this week on his former team’s brewing quarterback controversy, relisted his 10,180-square-foot home at 930 Old Mill Road in Franklin Lakes for $5.3 million on July 2.

NJ.com noted that the new asking price is about $3 million less than what Simms sought when he first put the home on the market at $8.25 million in May 2017. That listing was removed in January of the following year.

According to Zillow, Simms’ Franklin Lakes home was built in 2002 and has seven bedrooms, 11 bathrooms and a country kitchen with a large eating area and private breakfast nook, as well as a guest house with one bedroom and one bathroom.

Other amenities include an outdoor pool, a fully equipped gym, a master suite with private baths, a study and a fireplace. Charles Oppler of Sotheby’s International Real Estate has the listing.

Property records show that Simms and his wife, Diana, purchased the Franklin Lakes parcel in 1999 for $1.55 million. The couple raised their three children — former National Football League quarterbacks Matt and Chris, as well as daughter Deidre — in the home. Simms starred for the Giants from 1979 to 1993 before moving on to a broadcast career.

When Simms initially looked to sell his Franklin Lakes home two years ago, Patch noted it was only a few weeks after he had been replaced by former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo — no stranger to high-priced home sales, and who kicked off this year’s ICSC convention in Las Vegas — as a television analyst on CBS.
