Former NFL star and two-time Super Bowl champion Jim McMahon is hoping to score with the listing of his Arizona home. McMahon is asking $1.5 million for the fieldstone-heavy desert residence.
The retired QB first put the Scottsdale residence on the market for $1.9 million in early August. Several price reductions followed, so it’s clear McMahon is looking for a sale sooner rather than later.
The customized home is set on two acres. It measures 6,430 square feet, was built in 1993, and holds four bedrooms. The interiors are grandiose, but warm. The centerpiece is the great room, which is designed around an arresting sense of scale, and features a series of ornamental columns and a dramatically angled, vaulted ceiling. It culminates in a grand fieldstone fireplace.
Grandiose the interiors may be, but they’re also warm. Soft yellow walls, beige stone, and mid-toned hardwood floors keep the atmosphere inviting and comforting. A dedicated dining space, breakfast nook, and spacious kitchen take care of both intimate meals and larger gatherings.
The exterior features a pool with angularity reflecting the home’s architecture. A stone gazebo and a self-contained guest house help fill out the property.
McMahon helped two teams on the road to Superbowl victory, one on each end of his career: the Chicago Bears in XX, and the Green Bay Packers in XXXI.
