Top 25 Incredible Luxury Athlete Homes

If any aspiring professional athlete had the time to make a list of the materialistic things they can’t wait to get their hands on once they cash their first big-league check, we’d have a list long enough to crash this entire website. Granted, not all athletes are in it for the riches and the fortune, but let’s be honest; it must be nice to get six-figure bank deposits every couple of weeks, no matter how unconcerned with money an individual might be.

The first thing that comes to mind always seems to be the nice car, either a sleek, high-end machine for the athlete or a big, classy SUV for their mother, or whoever else they might want to thank for the sacrifices that person made to help get them reach their goals. Then an athlete might up his fashion game with a new wardrobe, put on a fresh Armani suit and head out on the town in his brand new Ferrari to buy ridiculously overpriced drinks for stunning women who we’re already in love at the sight of him.

At the end of the night, though, where does the high-earning athlete bring his car, his clothes, and his beautiful girl? To his multi-million dollar mansion, that’s where. High ceilings, the latest technologies, enough rooms for twenty families and a massive pool in the even bigger backyard; all “necessities” in the most grandiose of homes.

Over the years, we've seen athletes spend their big contracts of some pretty magnificent properties; some that will make you cringe with jealousy, and some bordering on “what could he possibly need all that room for?” Either way, these athletes’ houses will blow your mind and make you wish you had hit the gym harder while playing for your high school football team back in the day.

Ray Allen decided to do it big just by coming to Miami to play with the Heat’s Big 3, but then decided he would really live the Miami lifestyle and rented out a beach-side mansion that runs him $50,000 dollars a month to live in. The estate has more baths (11) than bedrooms (9), is practically entirely made of marble and houses a four-car garage.

1 Floyd Mayweather

via thisis50.com

The world’s wealthiest athlete would be wasting the fruits of his labor if he wasn't relaxing (or partying, or doing anything for that matter) in the most extravagant home of them all. Money Mayweather didn't disappoint; mostly because his extravagance spans to houses in Miami, LA, and NYC…and three in Vegas. He owns 88 cars. His main Vegas mansion is four-stories and consists of a huge pool with a view of Las Vegas. There is plenty of marble in the house, not to mention a private movie theater, a balcony and the piece de resistance: video games in his kitchen counter-tops.
