Peyton Manning said when he signed with the Broncos that he would make Denver his permanent home, and now he has found his home. And it’s a home that will cost about one-fifth of his annual salary.
The Denver Post reports that Manning bought a seven-bedroom home in Cherry Hills Village, about 10 miles from the Broncos’ practice facility, for $4,575,000. That’s a lot of money for most of us, but Manning — whose contract with the Broncos pays him about $19.2 million a year — can swing it.
The house is 16,000 square feet on 3.37 acres, with seven bathrooms, a billiard room, a safe room and an elevator. It also features a media room, which in the Manning household will probably serve as the place to study film, at least until his 1-year-old twins are old enough to crowd him out with their Pixar DVDs.
The house was originally listed at $5.25 million, so Manning got himself a pretty good deal.
