Ryan Tannehill Buys Midcentury Modern Home for $4.3 Million in Fort Lauderdale
The Miami Dolphins maintain they're committed to Ryan Tannehill, and the quarterback certainly seems committed to South Florida. Tannehill and his wife Lauren just plunked down $4.3 million for a midcentury modern pad in the heart of Fort Lauderdale.
Located in the Colee Hammock neighborhood not far from Las Olas Boulevard, the house is a major upgrade for the young couple. They has been living in a relatively modest townhouse just north of Port Everglades.
According to the Real Deal, the couple put in an offer on the home only a day after it hit the market. They snagged the place for $200,000 under than the $4.5 million asking price.
The home features four bedrooms, four and a half baths, and a separate guest house with a single bedroom and bathroom. It also features a pool and 100 feet of water frontage.
According to a previous listing, the home was designed by an architect who studied under Frank Lloyd Wright. That explains the midcentury modern feel of the home's architecture.
The home, which was built in 1981, was last sold in 1999 for $1.4 million.
With the team's main training facilities in Davie, most major Dolphins players tend to favor buying McMansions in the western reaches of the Broward suburbs. Tannehill and his young blond wife (who is the face of Levinson Jewelers) are bucking that tradition for a home right in Broward's urban core just a short drive from the Las Olas nightlife scene.
