Just Listed: Carson Wentz’s Rural Retreat in Woodstown
Since the former Eagles quarterback no longer needs this pleasure dome, maybe you might want it instead. Especially if you’re looking for the Best. Man Cave. Ever.
We’re sure you’ve already gotten rid of your collection of Carson Wentz jerseys. And we hope that before you got rid of them, you chipped in $11 to his charitable foundation. And if you haven’t done that yet, you should, for his AO1 Foundation is sticking around to feed the hungry across the Philadelphia region.
But maybe you haven’t wiped your memory clean of Wentz. After all, the Eagles’ — and our — hopes rode on him for five seasons, and he was a fundamentally decent guy. So maybe you still have some mementoes of him lying around.
And maybe you’d like to have the greatest memento of all: His house.
Carson Wentz’s house for sale sprawls across the middle of an 11-acre lot in bucolic Salem County, a few miles east of Woodstown and Pilesgrove in an area suburbia is not likely to reach for some time, if ever.
This house was built in 1995 for a publishing executive, and it was already pretty loaded when Wentz made it his own. But that didn’t stop him from piling on some more.
Huge windows and soaring cathedral ceilings give this house both visual drama and an open, airy feel, even in the comparatively claustrophobic living room.
But that room is no match for the great room overlooking the backyard, thanks to its two-story-high windows and equally high stone fireplace.
Connected to both and open to the latter are the kitchen and dining room. With loads of counter space, a large Sub-Zero fridge and other top-drawer appliances, this recently remodeled space has what you need to prepare a royal feast.
You can drink like royalty, too, thanks to the large wine closet next to the dining room.
And speaking of wine, if you feel like relaxing with a glass in your own personal spa, the primary bedroom upstairs has you covered.
In addition to another soaring cathedral ceiling and plenty of room, its bathroom has both a large shower with dual rain heads and a soaking tub with spray wand. Just fill the tub, grab a bottle of wine from the bathroom’s beverage fridge, and enjoy.
Of course, it has a large home office for your work back on the main floor, across the foyer from the living room. And it has loads of play space.
The walkout basement contains a multipurpose rec room with a wet bar, a billiard/game area and a media room with fireplace.
And if you’d prefer a more cinematic viewing experience, there’s also a 10-seat theater down here.
And what would a pro athlete’s residence be without a gym?
Incomplete, apparently, for the gym in the outbuilding is even bigger and better equipped, complete with an indoor infinity pool.
Another game area overlooks the gym, and below the game area is another lounge.
All of these things put together makes this without a doubt the Best. Man Cave. Ever. Even if it looks like a garage.
And finally, there’s the outdoor play area in between the indoor ones. With an outdoor kitchen and a pool, it’s all ready to welcome your friends.
Wentz liked this place because of its outdoorsy surroundings; he was an avid outdoorsman and hunter, as those buck heads and camouflage clothes in the man cave should indicate, and rumor has it he also filmed episodes of his outdoor-life TV show on the land that surrounds this parcel. Another 23 acres of it also belonged to Wentz, and if 11 acres aren’t room enough for you, you can buy those too for just a little more money.
