This one might remind you of an episode of MTV’s “Cribs.”
In Sandy Springs, there is a $5.89 million home for sale that is fit for a king. Or at least, it was good enough for a Super Bowl MVP.
A home nestled on Northwest Riverside Drive is owned by Hines Ward — a former University of Georgia and Pittsburgh Steelers’ star — and recently, the custom-built home was placed on the market. Realtor Paula S. Van Sickle calls it an “entertainer’s dream home.” She and Brad Burns of the Burns Van Sickle Real Estate team are selling the home through PalmerHouse Properties.
The home sits on more than two acres of land, has 15-foot ceilings, a two-story foyer, six fireplaces, a six-car garage and an elevator.
Ward, a five-time Pro-Bowler and Forest Park High School graduate, was living large in this north Fulton County home. In total, it has eight bedrooms, seven full baths and five half-baths.
The master bedroom features a sitting room and a “luxurious” bathroom with custom his and hers closets. There is also a nanny suite will a full bath and kitchen. The main level also has a kitchen that opens into the family room.
In the backyard is a resort-style pool, a hot tub, an outdoor kitchen, a pool house and a tennis court. In the basement, there is a theater, a bar, a poker room and a playroom.
The home also features a weight room, a sauna and a trophy room that once likely housed all of Ward’s awards. At Georgia, he was a two-time All-SEC selection and is second only to Herschel Walker in all-purpose yards.
It is also a "smart home" with high-tech controls, and has geothermal heating and air.
The home was built in 2008 and first listed on Realtor.com in March.
