Steve McNair’s House Re-Listed Three Years After NFL Star’s Murder
Coming up on the third anniversary of Steve McNair’s death, the NFL quarterback legend’s home is again listed for sale. This time, unlike in 2009 when McNair’s house was first listed for sale just weeks after McNair’s tragic death, the price has been reduced to $1.995 million.
That’s more than a million dollars less than what McNair’s widow, Mechelle, was originally seeking for the 14,000-square-foot abode. That makes a bargain out of the mammoth home, listed on the Nashville real estate market, that still bears all signs that McNair lived and played (air hockey and video games) there.
From his portrait that still hangs in the billiards room to the Super Bowl QB’s memorabilia framed and hanging on a trophy-room’s walls, the house is a gleaming — and comfortable — shrine to the McNair. The Mississippi native was revered in Nashville after the Houston Oilers franchise moved to Tennessee in 1997, the year McNair became the starter.
The McNair’s bought the spread in 2004 for $1.599 million, and spent five years in the 9-bedroom, 9.5-bathroom spread, before McNair’s life was abruptly ended in a murder-suicide. McNair was shot by a woman with whom he had been having an affair, who then turned the gun on herself.
