One of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play in the New York area is looking to sell his family’s Georgian Revival house following his departure from professional football.
Eli Manning, who retired from the NFL last year, has listed his property in the leafy city of Summit for $5.25 million. Manning and his wife, Abby, purchased the mansion in 2014 for $4.7 million and undertook a complete restoration the following year.
Built in 1904, the interior space of the house encompasses 9,000 square feet that totals six bedrooms, five full bathrooms, four half-bathrooms, and a home gym. The layout includes a fireside dining room, a sun-filled formal living room, and an oversized family room. A 750-bottle wine cellar is a highlight, as are the eight restored fireplaces scattered throughout the home.
The house is situated on 1.1 acres of land and sports a backyard equipped with an in-ground pool and temperature-controlled pool house complete with indoor golf simulator. The home includes a three-car garage and taxes run $88,810/year at the property, which is listed through Hallee Dangler with Prominent Properties Sotheby’s International Realty.
Manning, a four-time Pro Bowler over the course of his 16-year career, won the Super Bowl in 2008 and 2012 with the New York Giants. He was twice named Super Bowl MVP, one of only five players in NFL history to accomplish that feat. The Giants’ victory in Super Bowl XLII against the previously undefeated New England Patriots is considered one of the biggest upsets in sports history.
Manning currently ranks seventh in NFL history for all-time passing yards and eighth in total touchdowns. He started 210 consecutive games from 2004 to 2017, the third-longest streak ever by an NFL quarterback. The son of former New Orleans Saints quarterback Archie Manning and brother of Indianapolis Colts great Peyton is set to have his No. 10 jersey retired by the Giants next season.
Manning and his family previously lived in a three-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom condominium inside Hoboken’s Hudson Tea Building, which they initially listed at $5.2 million. It eventually sold in 2018 for $3.55 million, reportedly the highest price ever paid for a condo in Hoboken’s history.
