Michael Strahan, NFL player turned "FOX NFL Sunday" analyst turned co-host of "Live! with Kelly and Michael," just upgraded his digs from a three-bedroom Hermosa Beach pad to a five-bedroom Bel-Air mansion for $7.9 million, reports the <a href="http://articles.latimes.com/2012/sep/27/business/la-fi-hotprop-michael-strahan-20120927" target="_blank">Los Angeles Times</a>. Take a look at their new digs and the beachy pad that's still on the market for $1.819 million.
Here's an aerial view of Strahan and Murphy's new home. Their new purchase boasts five bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms, a screening room with a wet bar, home gym, a swimming pool and detached guest house. Unfortunately, public listing photos are scarce so we'll let our imaginations do the work.
In addition to the pair's Hermosa Beach home, which is still up for grabs, the couple also recently sold a four-bedroom house in the same beach city for $3 million. Needless to say, it's a year of changes for the engaged couple.
The gated estate provides tons of privacy, though Strahan's commute is bound to be long. At the beginning of September 2012, the former New York Giant was announced as Kelly Ripa's co-host to the popular morning show, which tapes in the Big Apple.
Strahan's new digs feature incredible city views. At least he'll have the California sunshine to greet him after taping in New York. The pair's estate features a spacious living room, formal dining room, family room and office, which are all done up with walls of glass.
Take a look inside Strahan's beachy pad he's trying to unload for $1.819 million.
A view of the footballer's front patio, which is located just minutes from The Strand in an ideal spot in Hermosa Beach. While the front patio offers a bit more public space, the home also features a private roof deck patio if you'd rather not deal with the street traffic.
Strahan's kitchen boasts stainless steel Viking appliances and granite countertops. The entire spread is decked out with various tumbled marble, slate and hardwood.
Another view of the kitchen.
The open living space makes this an ideal spot for entertaining. Football Sunday party, anyone?
It looks like Strahan has totally decamped from this spot leaving no trace behind of his interior decorating tastes. Oh well, the space looks pretty fab with or without furniture.
The bedrooms boast brand new carpets. There are three bedrooms total, two of them are master suites.
One of the master suites features this Zen Jacuzzi tub. A nearby beach and a jacuzzi tub? Now, that's the life.
There are three baths in Strahan's spread. This one features a gigantic shower stall fit for a large football player like Strahan.
Head on down to the lower floor and you'll find a kitchenette/wet bar and a family room that can double as an entertainment/media room, or even a man cave.
What this home lacks in acres sure makes up for in its close proximity to the beach. Though if you're looking for a plot of land with a ton of space, this might not be it.
There's the Pacific. Strahan sure chose a great location for his oceanside pad.
