Former NFL star and Florida Gator Percy Harvin is saying “later” to his Windermere, FL, home. The retired wide receiver bought the lakefront estate in 2013 for $2.6 million, according to property records. It’s now listed for $2.75 million.

“The flow of the property is really, really nice,” says listing agent Mauro Costa of Premier Realty Partners. “It used to be a much smaller home.”

The previous owners purchased the place in 2007 for $1.45 million and expanded the layout from 3,000 square feet to 8,464, according to Costa.

Once Harvin bought it, there was nothing left to do but enjoy the estate, which has eight bedrooms and two separate guest or staff apartments.

The gated Mediterranean-style estate, dubbed “Bella Olivia,” includes 5 acres, lake frontage, and a boat dock. The estate features wrought-iron doors, and granite and travertine flooring. The living area has a coffered ceiling, wood-wrapped beams, and a stone-wrapped gas fireplace. 

The open kitchen has custom cabinets and high-end appliances. The master suite features hardwood flooring, a tray ceiling, and a master bath. 

Entertainment options include a home theater, game room, and wet bar. While the pool table is still on the premises, the framed jerseys of NBA greats Patrick Ewing and Michael Jordan decorating the wall have departed with the owner. 

Outside there’s a huge lanai, pool and spa, and summer kitchen. There’s also a six-car garage and a paved driveway with elegant fountain.

Harvin has decided to move to Jacksonville to be closer to his family, according to the agent.  But here’s a fun fact: The area is on the opposite side of Windermere where other high-profile celebs have lived, including Shaquille O’Neal, Wesley Snipes, and Tiger Woods. 

Now retired, Harvin starred for the Florida Gators in college and was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings. He also played for the Seattle Seahawks, New York Jets, and Buffalo Bills. He is one of the few players to have won a state high school title, national title in college, and the Super Bowl.
