We did it! The Baltimore Ravens won the Super Bowl against the San Francisco 49ers in an unforgettable battle (even included lights in the New Orleans super dome going out for 30 minutes). It was such an awesome feeling to be back in my hometown and see my boys win. There were so many great standout moments from Jacoby Jones’ record 109-yard return touchdown to Ray Lewis retiring a two-time champ after 17 amazing years with the Ravens. Now that the celebratory parades are over, one player is looking for a brand new home.
Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice has put his Baltimore county townhouse on the market reducing the asking price by $20,000. Measuring in at 2,100 square feet, Rice purchased the 4-bedroom/3.5-bath home the same year he drafted with the Ravens (2008). Located on a cul-de-sac n a gated community (sorry no peepers), a future homeowner will enjoy a quasi-bachelor pad (Ray and girlfriend became engaged in 2012) that includes a master bath Jacuzzi and game room/man cave (not sure if the mini fridge in the master bath is included).
As far as decorating goes…perhaps Ray was a little busy with his football career to give his home the proper attention as it is a little lackluster. The interiors are bland boasting neutral walls and so-so furnishings. At first glance, you would not think this home belongs to an NFL footballer, but there is something to be said about Ray’s modesty. Perhaps he was trying to conserve his money as no professional player’s career is ever guaranteed and didn’t want to invest in the help of a decorator or eye catching home accessories. Regardless, it would be awesome to give this pad a redo and say you purchased the house of a Super Bowl champion! Maybe for his next home Rice will give it a little more pizzazz as he signed a 5-year contract with the Ravens for $40 million.
Thoughts on this home?
