Who Won the Super Bowl of Homes?
The Broncos may have won the actual game, but who wins the Super Bowl of houses? We are pitting Cam Newton's Charlotte condo against Peyton Manning's Denver estate. Who will win this battle of the Super Homes? Our findings below.
Cam Newton: Cam Newton paid $1.6 million for his uptown Charlotte condo in 2012. The Panther's Quarterback can relax amid exposed ceilings, fish tanks, and hardwood floors. The three-bedroom, three-bath condo is 3,200 square feet of space and is in an exclusive seven-unit building with a rooftop pool. Newton could bump into other famous residents Michael Jordan, or former owner of the Charlotte Bobcats Boris Diaw. Each resident also receives membership to the Charlotte Athletic Club, (not that Newton needs it.) The former Auburn Tiger can easily afford his bachelor pad- his five-year, $103.8 million contract was extended in 2015, and his net worth is estimated to be up to $32 million. Not bad for someone who has not yet reached his 27th birthday.
Peyton Manning: In 2012, Manning signed a five-year contract with the Denver Broncos worth $96 million and immediately made himself at home with the purchase of his 16,464 square foot home. This Georgian estate has seven bedrooms, 10 baths, and 3.37 of landscaped acres in a great school district for his twins. The home features an open floor plan, a two-story rotunda, and black walnut floors. Manning and his family also enjoy separate media and billiards rooms, an elevator, a safe room, and a dog room attached to an outdoor heated kennel. Also of note is the wood paneled office, perfect for inking endorsement deals or managing the 21 Papa John's Pizzas that he owns around the Denver area.
Results: The winner of the Clickscape Vince Lombardi Trophy of Real Estate is Peyton Manning! Although Cam Newton's condo looks amazing with its sleek interiors, you can't beat Manning's lavish estate. We would love to know which of those bedrooms is the Super Bowl Ring room!
