Eli Manning buys $8M beachfront mansion in the Hamptons
His dreams of winning a third Super Bowl may have been squashed yesterday, but at least Eli Manning‘s got a nice new beachfront mansion in the Hamptons to go home to. The Post reports that the Giants Quarterback dropped $8.5 million on a three-story house in Quogue, a secluded village that isn’t a surprising choice for the rather low-key NFL player. The modern home was built in 2004 and has five bedrooms, a fireplace, pool, massive backyard deck, and private beach access.
The Post spotted the sale in property records under Mr. Chester LLC, which was named for the family dog, a Cavalier King Charles spaniel named Chester. Eli did put his Hoboken condo on the rental market back in April for $18,000/month after listing it for sale in May 2015 for $5.2 million, but it’s doubtful the Hamptons spread will be his permanent residence as it’s quite a hike from MetLife Stadium. We’d imagine it more as a summer getaway for him and wifeAbby McGrew and their three daughters. And they need not hire a lifeguard; in a 2014 People magazine article Manning said of Chester, “He is very protective [of the kids] and keeps a good eye on them. He does not like when they go swimming. He’s very scared for them in the swimming pool, you know. We’ve got a good eye on them, but it’s sweet.”
