NFL’s DeSean Jackson Goes All The Way: Buys First Home in Los Angeles

Philadelphia Eagles’ DeSean Jackson has a lot to be proud of. Not only can he say he’s a star player for the NFL, who just recently signed a new 5-year, $51-million contract, but now he can also cross that finish line of becoming a first-time homeowner! After several years of renting in Los Angeles, Jackson has moved on up and purchased a 3,837-square-foot home in Tarzana, CA for $1.65 million.

Being the showman and big spender that he is, this modest purchase does comes as a surprise to some as the multi-million dollar wide receiver shelled out less than $2 million. However, the property exudes charm and personality and is close to his hometown Long Beach, CA. With prime LA location and some pizzazz to fill the appetite of a pro-athlete, the home seems like a perfect off-season retreat for some much needed R&R.

Located in prime South Tarzana, CA, the four-bedroom, six-bath property is a traditional, gated, family home offering luxury and comfort at every turn. The all-white property features beautiful french doors, hardwood floors, crown molding and open living spaces. The living room welcomes you with a beamed ceiling and exquisite glass tile fireplace and leads you to a large family room and elegant dining area with chandelier and backyard access. An upgraded chef’s kitchen is the focal point of the home and includes stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, a breakfast island and a cute windowsill seating area.

The exterior of the home includes a pool and grassy area, along with a one-bedroom, one-bath detached studio suite with French doors and gaudy black and white checkered flooring.
