Now that he's no longer a Viking, Jared Allen is trying to sell his swanky Chanhassen digs.
Realtor Jeffrey Dewing confirms that the for-sale home at 6915 Lucy Ridge Lane is owned by Allen, who signed a $32 million contract (with $15.5 million guaranteed) with Chicago earlier this year. The asking price is $1.75 million.
Here's how the listing describes the house, which fronts Lucy Lake:
Stunning former Denali model home with European charm. Premium lot with private, expansive lake views. Main floor owners suite with coffee/wine bar, reading alcove and library. Guest/nanny quarters and fully finished garage suite. Minnetonka Schools.Built in 2007, the 8,616 square-foot place features six bedrooms and bathrooms and all the bells and whistles you'd expect an NFL star to have access to.
Allen's isn't mentioned by name on the actual listing. Asked why, Dewing tells us, "I work with a lot of athletes and I keep them as confidential as possible. It's at their discretion -- whatever they prefer, that's how I handle it."
