Clinton Portis's home hits the market

By Dan Steinberg


Clinton Portis's house is for sale. Now, before you all go jumping to conclusions, bear in mind that Portis owns multiple properties in the D.C. market, and that there's no requirement that members of the Redskins actually own a home in this area. Maybe he wants to rent in Reston or something.

But anyhow, here's the description of his home, a five-bedroom, six-bathroom McLean mansion which is listed at a cool $2.5 million.

Beautiful McLean Private Estate tucked away down a private drive. Owner, has spared no expense, 3 finished floors complete with a luxurious mast suite with cavernous closets and balcony, gourmet kit with granite and SS appliances, open and airy solarium, elegant stone and wood work throughout, built-ins throughout, in-ground pool and spa, walkout lower level w/ theater room, and tons more.

"Very bright, almost garish color schemes," I might have added, were I the listing agent.

Stainless Steel Refrigerators suck. How are you supposed to put all your refrigerator magnets on it?

What, no mention of the stripper pole?

The colors he chose lead me to believe he is a Vikings or Bengals fan (LOL). Sheeesh, that is horrible which most likely will affect offers he receives as most people will have to repaint day 1.

That was a foregone conclusion when he signed for the Redskins.

for a full price offer, he will dress up as any previous CP character at the closing.

I kind of like the stuff on the walls in the poolroom. what is that?

Does he know that paint comes in a sheen other than REFLECTIVE??

Unless there are fully stocked shark tanks, I'm not interested.

Posted by: ThisGuy | February 1, 2011 3:04 PM | Report abuse

Given the fact that Portis is clearly color blind, we should be thankful he doesn't run into his offensive line.

Oh, wait...

My eyes! The goggles do nothing...to protect me from these hideous colors.

Love all the "hater" comments on a property they can't afford. I guess if you had nothing better to do, you can always hate!

Does his HOA require that each room be a different color?

Posted by: I-270Exit1 | February 1, 2011 4:08 PM | Report abuse

Ok, I'm a Realtor and a pretty good one.

Those colors are absolutely hideous.

Most "folks" buying a $2.5 mill place are going to tailor it to their tastes. $2.5 mil in McLean sounds like the price was set low already to reflect the "handyman special" status...

Nothing wrong with that house that a WHOLE bunch of paint wouldn't cure.

McLean is a ghetto now I would not give a million for that ethnic POS.

Perhaps "new money" would be more appropriate?

Some of the trailer trash people woke up in an envious mood, eh?

Sounds like a bunch of broke ass haters who can't afford the paint.

Typical comments from those who:

live with Mommy and sleep in the same bedroom they had when they were 6.

live in a non-descript 1970's era apartment complex.

live in a trailer.

Man got money, He do what he want wit-it!

Posted by: vexed50verizonnet | February 1, 2011 6:26 PM | Report abuse

The owner calls this the sheriff gonna getch ya saloon. Its airy and allows sunlight to flow throw like a tsunami. You'll notice the paint really brings this quality out making it ideal for indoor sunglass use...

Let's head over to the south east jerome wing now shall we.

That's it, "hate", "hater", "hating", people. You are a mongoloid.

Before you refinance, check your credit report for anything that could foul up a refinance. You don't want to lay out the money if a credit problem is going to keep you from refinancing, search online for "123 Mortgage Refi" I just used them and they are the best, they got me 3.113% rate

Posted by: caseyrose246 | February 2, 2011 5:23 AM | Report abuse

Some of these comments are a riot!

44's record is safe as CP is going to pull an LT and play backup for a SB contender for the 2 years he has left.

Can't blame him.

Posted by: artsnsportz | February 2, 2011 6:43 AM | Report abuse

Mclean is a ghetto? Grape Kool Aid? New Money? Sounds like some thinly vailed white man hateration of a young black man with money. Just remember...as you sit here and ridicule his taste in paint color and interior design. "Clinton's pockets is straight" as he would say.

The comment about him being color blind and running into his offensive lineman. Now that was "CLASSIC" ^5 Rand-al Thor, well done my man!

The decorator needs to retire. Who in their right mind would decorate someone's house like that...just ugly.

Not crazy about the colors or the sectional but nothing lots of paint and lots of hours painting wouldn't fix.
Really like the tray ceiling and marble floor.

well, LaVar said he dresses like a fairy,
but i don't know how you would classify this interior decoration.

These comments are hilarious! All this banter about a house that went up for sale. Ya'll better get Martha Stewart in there and fix that place up.....

Yeah, b/c if you're spending 2.5 million on a house, you can't afford to repaint.

Honestly I'm surprised he's put so little into his house. That's not even half a year's salary. No wonder guys have nothing after they stop playing. Hope he held onto some of the rest, because he's not seeing 6.2 again.

But in the interest of reporting, where does he live during the off-season?

Posted by: WorstSeat | February 3, 2011 8:53 AM | Report abuse

Now that was a total waste of time.

Posted by: tmkelley | February 3, 2011 11:12 AM | Report abuse

Not hating....I actually like CP got the jersey and the whole 9, but to be honest the color scheme is hidious. But guess what...I aint got to live in it and wouldn't pay $2.5 for it. If I DID want it and had the cash, a serious price reduction would be in order just to get the color scheme to my liking but damn...that $h!# is ugly...and for what it's worth I'm black!!!
