Jeremy Maclin—former wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles—is leaving the nest. The speedy Maclin recently signed a five-year, $ 55 million contract with the Kansas City Chiefs. And as he makes his way to the Midwest, the two-time All-American is selling his two-story brick home in West Deptford, NJ.
Maclin, who was born in Chesterfield, MO, is returning to familiar ground. Before a successful six-year run with the Eagles, Maclin starred at the University of Missouri, practicing on a field not far from the Chiefs’ home turf.
The four-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom home is listed for $ 349,900. Clocking in at 2,506 square feet, the home is on the modest side for an NFL baller, but it offers plenty of high-end amenities.
Built in 2004, the traditional-style brick home has a two-car garage and landscaped yard. Entering the home, you’re greeted by a formal living room with a large, bay window. The kitchen features Corian counters, a limestone backsplash, and stainless-steel appliances.
On the second level you’ll find a master suite with a walk-in closet. The master bathroom has an oversize soaking tub and separate shower.
The basement is finished and measures 667 square feet, which is plenty of space to let your imagination run wild. Perhaps it could be turned into a game room or a miniature football field?
Outside, you’ll find a two-tier deck with a hot tub overlooking an ample backyard, which is fenced. The home is also a mere 12 minutes from Philadelphia.
Philadelphia will likely feel the effects of Maclin’s departure, but the move couldn’t have come at a better time for the Chiefs. After last season’s disaster in which no Chiefs wide receiver caught a touchdown, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid made Maclin his top target in free agency.
However, there’s no need for hope on this listing—we’re sure the wideout will score a quick sale on his modest New Jersey home.
