A Northern Kentucky Home Owned by Former Bengals Linebacker Vontaze Burfict is For Sale
A Northern Kentucky home owned by controversial former Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict recently hit the real estate market.
Located at 678 Canterbury Drive, the $1,199,000 contemporary Edgewood home was purchased by Burfict in 2018. Spanning over 4,000 square feet with four beds and four baths, the home is full of amenities including a “state-of-the-art kitchen” and a massive en suite spa-like master bathroom with a free-standing bath, shower with dual shower heads and spacious walk-in closet.
The basement features a gaming room with five TVs, a billiards room, wet bar and steam room. Plenty of Bengals memorabilia can be seen throughout the basement rooms throughout the listing images.
And whether you're a Bengals fan or not, you may know Burfict for his behavior on the field.
According to a February post on NFL.com, Burfict was suspended for 12 games after a "helmet-to-helmet hit" on the Indianapolis Colts' Jack Doyle during the 2019 season and for his "repeated violations of the player safety rules while the linebacker was with the Oakland Raiders."
The story goes on to say, "The suspension is Burfict's fourth during his NFL career, and the third time he's been hit with a ban for on-field incidents. In 2016, Burfict was suspended three games for multiple violations of player safety rules. In 2017, the linebacker was suspended five games for a hit to a defenseless player, which was reduced to three games upon appeal. In 2018, Burfict missed four games for a violation of the NFL's PED policy. The linebacker has also been slapped with multiple fines for illegal hits throughout his career."
Is this a selling point? Probably depends on how big of a football fan you are. But the swanky interior certainly is, regardless of who owned the home last.
