    Beautiful views. Otherwise hideous. I hope he can find a decent decorator or the porn and stripper communities will be disappointed.

    The best thing for Gronk would be getting married and vacationing with the Welkers and Bradys.

    1.6 million in Tampa and that's all he got?

    I thought real estate in FL was 50 cents on the dollar....maybe it doesn't apply to major cities/areas and just the burbs.

    Still, you gotts figure it's a frat house and I hope he's careful with who he parties with.

    It's OK, hopefully he is being wise with his money.. he seems a tad impetuous at times, and the type who tends to squander.

    Tampa is full of cheeseballs and strippers. I can't think of a more appropriate place for Gronk to call home.

    Actually it's a wise choice to buy a home in Florida. Although it won't apply to his gameday paychecks, by showing that he lives in FL for at least 183 days a year he is considered a resident of that state. Zero income taxes for any endorsement deals he makes. If somebody should someday attempt to sue him they can't take his home or force him to sell his home to pay that debt if I recall correctly.


    As for the price, its almost 5000 square feet of waterfront property in an upscale part of the city; what do people expect that to cost? It's a whole lot less than what Derek Jeter paid for his house in the same city.

    Looking at the pictures/size/price paid for said size, I'd guess it's on Bayshore somewhere.

    Good for Gronk. Hope I run into him at International Plaza one day.

    $300/sq ft on the ocean is a bargain. The lot alone is a big ticket number. You guys realize these houses aren't made of wood....right? Just the costs for the hurricane impact windows would get you a decent house in central Mass. And look at the photos......not your basic Mass. shag carpet. 5000 sq ft of hardwood and saturnia marble. Lots of carpentry, tray ceilings, etc. The infinity pool could be $100k+.

    Same thing I thought, Bayshore. Thats like 15 minutes from my home and I jog there all the time. Also, can't beat Colanade! Best seafood.

    Fixed that for you.

    Yep, the homestead act protects your property from a forced sale. I'm guessing where it is and that is quite a beautiful and upscale section. You're on a little bay next to a city, though. the beaches are in Pinellas county.
