Former quarterback Michael Vick has sold his South Florida home for full asking price. The Davie, FL, property had gone on the market in June for $1.4 million. 

Vick passed the spacious spread in a guard-gated community to New England Patriots defensive end Lawrence Guy. While linemen aren’t usually noted for their hands, Guy caught an ultraluxe pad for relaxation in the offseason. 

“The gorgeous property went under contract after just a few weeks on the market. We’re thrilled to have accepted a full-ask offer on the home, allowing the Vicks to focus on the future and their growing family,” said listing agent Giselle Bonetti of Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate. She represented Vick in the transaction.

Vick and his wife, Kijafa, purchased the home in 2013 for $1.32 million, according to property records.

“We’ve loved living in this home and raising our family here, but after welcoming our third baby, it’s time for us to expand,” Vick said when he put the home on the market.

Not that this place is exactly cramped. The 6,295-square-foot home on a half-acre lot offers a chance to “live like a baller,” the listing notes. There are six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and a home theater.

Marble flooring runs throughout the main living areas, the living room features floor-to-ceiling windows, and the formal dining room boasts a decorative ceiling. The chef’s kitchen is adjacent to the family room.

The master suite comes with an elegant bath, sitting area, coffee bar, walk-in closets, and a dressing room. The outdoor living area contains a pool, spa, lounge space, and water views.

Guy has bounced around the NFL since being drafted in the seventh round in 2011 by the Green Bay Packers. The 28-year-old has played for five squads, joining the Patriots in 2017 on a four-year, $20 million contract

Vick, who retired from the NFL in 2017, starred for the Atlanta Falcons and Philadelphia Eagles. His career came to a stop in 2007 over his involvement in a dog-fighting ring, for which he served 21 months. After his release, he resumed playing football, signing with the Eagles in 2009. Vick was recently hired by Fox Sports as an analyst on “Fox NFL Kickoff.”
