Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has recently closed on a $3.6 million dollar waterfront Bay Area property located in Richmond, California, sources say. Lynch, a Bay Area native, attended high school in Oakland, CA and college at Cal Berkeley where he was an essential asset to the Cal Bears football program. While at Cal Berkeley Lynch set the school’s record for most 100-yard rushing games and was a strong candidate in the running for the famous Heisman Trophy.
According to sources, the 7,000 square-foot-home includes five bedrooms and five and a half baths with extraordinary panoramic views of the beautiful San Francisco Bay. With a custom built 58-foot boat dock, Lynch can “ghost ride” his boat to and from Richmond and San Francisco and go “beast mode” with his water toys on the Bay Area waters, a.k.a., his new backyard. The property is contemporary in style and offers additional luxe amenities including a wine cellar, theater room and elevator.
Lynch not only scored big with his recent real estate purchase, but earlier this year landed another huge contract deal with the Seattle Seahawks, extending his contract until 2016 and earning him a total of up to $31 million. Number 24 is making big moves on and off the field.
