Former Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles has headed west to the Los Angeles Rams, and moved on from his oceanfront abode in Jacksonville Beach, FL. The beach house was just sold for $1.7 million, the Jacksonville Business Journal reports.
The 27-year-old first listed the home last February for $2 million, then quickly cut the price to $1,925,000. Its latest price cut, to $1,825,000, finally enticed a buyer in mid-January, according to real estate records.
Bortles had bought the home for $1.5 million in 2015, soon after being drafted by the Jaguars as a first-round NFL pick in 2014.
Built in 1995, the 2,500-square-foot home has three bedrooms and three bathrooms, The “light and bright floor plan” maximizes views of the ocean. The open living area extends to a large covered deck overlooking the ocean. The kitchen features dark wood cabinets, stone countertops, and a center island with bar seating.
The master suite includes a sitting room, bath, and private balcony with ocean views.
The property comes with a private path to the beach, a grassy backyard, and deck with dining space. A two-car garage completes the offering.
Bortles started at quarterback for the Jaguars for five seasons with mixed results. After a dismal 2018 season, he was released by the team after it picked up Nick Foles. He spent the 2019 season as a backup for the Rams and made only three brief appearances on the field.
Justin Dalrymple of Mainframe Real Estate represented the listing.
