Larry Fitzgerald Sells Arizona Home - What’s Next For The Future Hall of Famer?

Arizona Cardinals veteran wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and his speculated retirement have made headlines over the past few years, much to the dismay of fans. During the tumultuous 2020 season, Larry Fitzgerald caught 54 receptions for 409 yards and one touchdown. Now, the beloved player has sold off his $18 million Paradise Valley home to a mystery buyer. Step inside the mansion Fitzgerald is leaving behind, and speculate what might be next for this fan-favorite.

Paradise Valley: Arizona’s Ultimate Luxury Market

Fitzgerald’s former home sits in the ultra-luxe Paradise Valley neighborhood, one of the richest cities in the U.S. If the name rings a bell, you likely recognize the neighborhood for its other celebrity residents, including Michael Phelps, Kurt Warner, Bil Keane, Mike Tyson, and Alice Cooper. In fact, this star-studded community is the city of choice for most local athletes, artists, and musicians.

The future hall of famer’s former home is three acres of pure Paradise Valley opulence. The compound includes its very own basketball court, pool, guest house, and motor court. It also features plenty of breathtaking views of nearby Camelback Mountain. The main attraction, however, is the sprawling 13,929-sq.-ft. Mansion - though we wouldn’t expect anything less from Fitzgerald as he clearly prioritizes having enough space for activities:

Unfortunately there aren’t many photos of this stunning home, and its recent buyer remains just as elusive. The estate was only on the market for a single day in November 2020, and the transaction was completed by a bay area accounting firm popular with a wide array of celebrities. Fitzgerald’s future is shrouded in mystery as well. Does a move mean he’s retiring or simply upgrading? Either way, fans are waiting with baited breath.

Looking to Score a Paradise Valley Home?

If you or a client have money to spend, why not touch down in Paradise Valley, a stone’s throw from your favorite local stars? Make a play for this stunning 8 bed, 16 bath chateau where, for a cool $13 million, you’ll have a reflecting pool, wine tasting room, and even a hair salon that will rival what Fitzgerald left behind. Or, between the sprawling lawn and home theater, maybe this Mediterranean-inspired 7 bed, 9 bath compound, priced at nearly $9 million, is more your speed. Either way, you’re sure to have plenty in common with your many notable new neighbors.
