Joe Buck finds buyer for $ 3.3 million house in St. Louis
The sale could be a home run for Fox sports journalist Joe Buck, who appears to have found a buyer for his St. Louis home just a week after putting it up for sale.
The 51-year-old play-by-play football and baseball baseman shared this honeymoon home with his wife, compatriot Michelle Beisner-Buck, for nearly seven years. Now his $ 3.3 million list has a pending buyer – which could mean a profit of $ 2.5 million for the familiar NFL and MLB voice, according to the property records of Realtor.com.
The house, which he bought with Beisner on their engagement, according to an article in St. Louis magazine 2016, has a double gable exterior with two triangular peaks on the face of the house. Tall black-edged windows and an oculus window define the facade, while two skylights protrude from the gray and red shingled roof, as shown in the photos.
It’s hard to find a luxury home with a ‘ranch’ feel, which offers an open floor plan and downstairs living, ”co-agent Megan Rowe told Realtor.com.
The covered and vaulted entrance opens through dark wooden doors onto a modest tiled entrance adorned with chandeliers.
To the right, the office has a slanted barrel ceiling and built-in bookcases filled with soccer balls, awards, and sports memorabilia from the couple’s work – including Buck’s six Emmy Awards.
The basement also includes a bar with sink and a wine cellar that can hold almost 1,000 bottles. Additionally, two gyms can accommodate multiple pieces of heavy machinery and a full set of weights, according to listing photos.
The most stunning room in the house is a family room with a steeply sloping sunroof and lined with French doors. The floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and hardwood floors complement a wrought iron chandelier, and rustic wood furnishings create a “relaxed yet elegant shabby chic aesthetic,” Beisner told St. Louis magazine in 2016.
French doors from the family room open onto a fenced, sloping lawn on 6 acres. The estate has a children’s play area, swimming pool, built-in barbecue and a hut decorated with stone walls, fireplace, TV, wrought iron chandelier, wooden beams and a steeply pitched roof.
Stone countertops and a beige tile backsplash line the kitchen with a large island, pendant lights, and a breakfast nook. And the 340 square foot owner’s suite is designed for two people, with two walk-in closets and a huge bathroom with two vanities.
The shock-absorbing house built in 1959 was furnished with locally sourced materials by interior designer Sandra Long, according to St. Louis Magazine.
“When people come into the house, I want them to feel like they can actually sit down and not just look at the furniture,” she told the magazine. “I didn’t want a show house.”
Property records do not show when the couple bought the house or for how much, but it was listed by its previous owner for less than $ 800,000 in 2012. It is also unclear why the couple are now abandoning their home. first house together. and the property records show no new home purchases from Buck. Selling comes like buck denounces the “bait titles” about him drinking tequila with Troy Aikman calling games.
They shared the house with their two twin sons, who are now almost 3, and their dog Finley. Buck also has two children – Natalie, 24, and Trudy, 21 – with his ex-wife, Ann Archambault, 49.
