Dealt to the Oakland Raiders in March, Matt Schaub is now looking to make a trade of his own. The former Houston Texans franchise quarterback has listed his Houston-area mansion for sale at $4.29 million.
The traditional-style home, built in 2000, occupies more than a half-acre in the affluent uptown Houston suburb of Tanglewood. Entering through a grand foyer with a curving spiral staircase, the three-story floor plan features beamed-ceilings, delicate molding and hardwood flooring.
Among its amenities, the nearly 11,000 square feet of living space counts an elevator, a gourmet kitchen, a fitness center, a media room and wine cellar. The master suite, one of five bedrooms and six full baths, has his and hers bathrooms and closets.
Found off one side of the home is a generous loggia with a fireplace and a summer kitchen. Adjacent to the patio are a pool and a rolling green lawn.
A two-time Pro Bowler, Schaub, 32, struggled during the early part of last season and ultimately lost the starting quarterback job to rookie Case Keenum. He was traded by the Texans to the Raiders for a 2014 sixth-round draft choice, which Houston later used to select Louisiana State University tailback Alfred Blue.
Public records show that Schaub and his wife, Laurie, purchased the home in December 2009. Laura Sweeney of John Daugherty Realtors is the listing agent.
