Brazilian soccer legend Pelé’s former Hamptons beach house recently sold, the New York Post reports. The seven-bedroom home at 156 Waterhole Road in Springs changed hands for $2.85 million, below its most recent ask of $3.25 million. The famous footballer won three World Cups during his career, which ran from the 1950s to the 1970s when he played for the New York Cosmos. Pelé–born Edson Arantes do Nascimento–bought the waterfront ranch house for $156,000 in 1979 and expanded it into its two-story, 3,400-square-foot form. Located on a landscaped acre next to Clearwater Beach and marina, the unassuming-on-the-outside house with sleek, recently renovated interiors also includes a pool, an outdoor shower and deeded access to the beach. Pelé, who is 77, lives in Brazil.
