While we didn’t get to see any action from the famed Chad Ochocinco during the Patriots pre-season home opener, the media certainly hasn’t been shy approaching the outspoken wide receiver since arriving in Boston. The media has let us know that the Twitter happy player that has dubbed a place on the Patriots as Heaven is looking for a place to live.
Until Ochocinco finds a place to call home in Boston, he claims he will live with a Patriots season ticket holder so long as they have a room for him, an internet connection and an Xbox 360. This, of course begs the question, where is he living now?
Regardless, that got us thinking – if we were trying to outfit Ochocinco with a place to live where might we suggest he look? These are our ideas of where the Prius driving, Ferrari in the garage at home new Patriots superstar should consider.
According to his tweets, Ochocinco has already made himself at home on Newbury Street dropping in at one of the street’s numerous Starbucks locations. So we thought this man-haven Penthouse on Newbury Street would be the perfect location to explore his new hometown anytime he wants, sans GPS. Listed at 3.1 million, this luxury location is easily within his price range, as he has already received a 4.5 million signing bonus upon joining the Patriots, despite taking a paycut in his base salary in order to place himself at heaven’s gate. Features for the unit include a direct access elevator (even 85 needs his privacy at times), 3 deeded spaces for all his various rides and a outdoor space complete with hot tub and a built in outdoor kitchen.
At 5,594 square feet there is ample space for the entire defense line at this posh unit on the 29th floor overlooking the Boston Common and the Back Bay beyond it with floor to ceiling windows. Adjacent to the Ritz Carlton Boston Common and Sports Club LA, getting in a workout before heading down to Foxboro will always be easy and convenient. A large master bedroom with walk in closet and marble bath will ensure a good night sleep – key for a good performance on the field! This unit also comes with three parking spaces so whatever vehicle he desires can be at his disposal at all times.
This Beacon Street townhouse boasts plenty of room to stretch out and enjoy the heart of historic Boston with close to 8,500 square feet. With six bedrooms inside he can slumber in a different room each night leading up to game day Sunday if he wants and never have to make a bed. There is a garden for moments of quiet reflection and a home gym to stay in pique physical form between trips down to Foxboro. But perhaps the most spectacular feature of this $14 million plus property is the rooftop infinity-edged lap pool over-looking the park. Stunning. We can see the TwitPics now….
What spot do you think Ochocinco is most likely to call home? Are you offering up your home to the Patriots star?
