Former NFL QB Byron Leftwich Sells South Florida Condo
Five years after he bought the place—and nearly two seasons after his last professional game—former NFL quarterback Byron Leftwich has sold his waterfront condo in Aventura, FL, for an even $1 million.
Located about 12 miles north of Miami Beach, Leftwich purchased the Peninsula I condo after he signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2009. Built in 2003, the unit sits on the 21st floor and has stunning views of Dumfoundling Bay to the east and Little Maule Lake to the southwest.
Listed by Billy Brown, the 2,984-square-foot condo features a flow-through floor plan, two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a half bath and a set of resort-like amenities.
Open the front door, and you find marble floors that run through the shared space of the condo, while the bedrooms feature hardwood floors providing atmospheric warmth and comfort. Plenty of natural light flows through the unit, too, thanks to the large windows.
The living room is large and ideal for entertaining, with access to a balcony that faces the water. The kitchen has modern stainless steel appliances, able countertops and a complementary backsplash. A dining room sits next to the kitchen, also with a view.
Both bedrooms have balcony access, and since the balconies face to the east and west, you can watch the sunrise as you wake up in the morning—and you can watch the sunset as you retire for the evening.
Or maybe the sunset is the signal for the fun to begin, and you don’t have to leave the building to find it: Peninsula 1 has two swimming pools to cool off during those hot summer nights, plus a full spa for relaxing after a long day. When you want to get a workout in, you can visit the two gyms or play on the tennis court.
If you have friends over, you can hang out in the trendy billiard room and shoot some stick or enjoy a barbecue in the picnic area.
Leftwich was picked seventh overall in the 2003 NFL draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars. He played for four NFL teams, amassing 10,532 passing yards and 58 touchdown passes, while compiling a 78.9 career passer rating. Leftwich won a Super Bowl ring as the backup quarterback to Ben Roethlisberger when the Pittsburgh Steelers won Super Bowl XLIII.
