Aaron Rodgers is officially a Jersey boy.
The Jets quarterback has been revealed as the mystery buyer of a multimillion-dollar contemporary mansion on the Montclair-Cedar Grove border.
Rodgers bought the eight-bedroom, 9-bathroom home for $9.5 million, New Jersey Monthly has confirmed.
As we first reported in June, rumors had been swirling that Rodgers could be the mystery buyer of the new-construction, modern glass pad, which has incredible views of New York City and is located near the Mills Reserve, a wooded county park that sits on top of the First Watchung Mountain.
Super Bowl stud Rodgers, 39, was traded to the New York Jets in April from the Green Bay Packers. The team’s practice facility is located in nearby Florham Park.
As for the new house, it spans a whopping 10,0000 square feet. The sleek design includes walls of windows, an open floor plan that seamlessly blends indoor and outdoor living spaces, and a gourmet kitchen with high-end appliances, custom cabinetry and a large center island with bar seating. Impressively, the back of the house is almost entirely made of glass.
The home was listed and sold by Stanton Company Realtors in Montclair. Rich Stanton, the broker and owner of the agency, previously told us that he didn’t know the identity of the buyer, as the home was purchased through an LLC.
He described it to us as “a very unique, modern home.” And Carol Apprendi, a realtor with Brown Harris Stevens real estate office in Montclair who toured the home, previously told us it was “beautiful” and “very unusual for the area because it’s so modern. It’s a great home for entertaining and the views of the city are breathtaking.”
The mansion sits on 2.39 acres of land atop the mountain, making it very private but giving Rodgers easy access to all the nearby goings-on in Montclair, including the town’s top-notch restaurant scene.
Other features of the house include a gym, media room, wine cellar and three-car garage.
New Jersey Monthly has reached out to the Jets for comment on the home purchase.
