New Jacksonville Jaguar Julius Thomas buys an off-season spot in L.A.


Julius Thomas is on the move for a second time this off-season.

The former Denver Broncos star, who in March became the NFL’s highest-paid tight end when he signed a lucrative free-agent contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars, has bought a townhouse on the Westside of Los Angeles for $1.25 million.

Found near the border of West Los Angeles and Century City, the three-bedroom unit is highlighted by raised ceilings, wood floors, multiple terraces and a private elevator servicing four floors. The master suite has a fireplace and his and hers baths for a total of three bedrooms and five bathrooms in nearly 2,200 square feet of space.


Terrace balconies sit off the third and fourth floors, while the main level has a private three-car garage.

Records show that the townhouse came on the market in February for $1.295 million. It previously sold for $1.099 million in 2004.

Brett Lawyer of Hilton & Hyland, an affiliate of Christie’s International Realty, was the listing agent, according to the Multiple Listing Service.

Thomas, 27, was as standout basketball player at Tokay High School in Lodi and later attended Portland State, where he lettered four years in basketball and played one year of football. A two-time Pro Bowler, Thomas caught 24 touchdown passes for the Broncos over the past two seasons.

His new contract with the Jaguars will pay $46 million over the next five years, $15.1 million of which he will take home this season.
