NFL Superstar Antonio Brown Drops $6.6M for Fort Lauderdale Manse With Synagogue

Tour the 12-bedroom mansion in Hollywood Oaks

Remember that Fort Lauderdale mansion with a synagogue that was being offered at $7.5 million in February?

It's officially off the market, with Pittsburgh Steelers star wideout Antonio Brown throwing down $6.6 million for the 12-bedroom, 18,000-square-foot estate in Hollywood Oaks, per the Sun Sentinel.

Million Dollar Listing's Chad Carroll was the listing agent.

Carroll said the home had been on the market for more than a year before he took the listing last month. He said it went under contract in 12 days for $900,000 less than the asking price.

"It's a gorgeous, custom-designed home," Carroll said.

The sale price is a record for the neighborhood, even though the home is not on the water, he said. Homes without waterfront views typically don't command such a high price tag, he said.

Brown has become one of the NFL's elite wide receivers, hauling in an unbelievable league-leading 136 catches last year for 1,834 yards and 10 touchdowns. The four-time Pro Bowler was born and raised in Miami and attended Miami Norland High School before starring at Central Michigan.

Brown is heading into the fourth year of a six-year, $43-million deal he signed in 2012, a contract many consider a bargain.
