Texas Football Star Offers Home for $465,000

Houston defensive end J.J. Watt has been described as one of the better NFL players at his position, although his play recently has been the target of sports insult specialist Skip Bayless. For someone looking for an inexpensive contemporary in Houston, it does not matter much. Watt has a home on the market for $465,000.

12324 Bend Creek Lane in Pearland, Texas, has four bedrooms and three and a half baths within 4,169 square feet. It sits on a quarter acre. The price may seem cheap, but it is more than the median listing price of homes in its Shadow Creek Ranch neighborhood, which is $319,999, or in Pearland at $303,000.

The house is near Fresno and south of downtown Houston and the Sam Houston Tollway. The neighborhood can be best described as a crowded subdivision with almost no land for any house in the area. The homes are really piled on top of one another. However, a swimming pool has been stuffed into the backyard.

Watt’s house was the most viewed on Realtor.com last week. The site’s comments:

When we dropped back to pass you this week’s most popular homes on realtor.com, we were sacked by this week’s winner. The Texas home of NFL superstar J.J. Watt slammed the competition this week and wrapped up our highest honor.

Perhaps curious football fans wanted a glimpse of how an All-Pro lives or maybe they were just shocked by the relative modesty of his Houston-area home. Sure, his four-bedroom home is plush by most definitions, but it doesn’t quite match up with what we’ve come to expect from a baller. And at “only” $465,000, the place was on the market for just two weeks before heading into pending sale status.

And the listing:

Impeccable and immaculately maintained home w/ Landscaped backyard oasis featuring saltwater pool w/ tub, patio with pergola and outdoor kitchen with granite on the lake with a fountain. Stunning! Master suite down, open and inviting living and kitchen areas, formal dining, and study. Three secondary bedrooms up with spacious and open family room. Two rooms have been added where a closet was which add approx 400 sq ft to what appraisal district quotes. Room sizes approximate; measure if critical.
