The NFL’s Clay Matthews and his wife, Casey Matthews, have recently listed their California home for $29.995 million. The home is large and luxurious and features such unique draws as its particularly star-studded zip code and large home-aquarium—rare, tropical fish potentially included.
Clay Matthews first bought the land on which the home is built in 2013 for $2.6 million. Construction on the home began in 2015 and was only finalized last year. While the couple had originally planned to settle down there, plans have changed and they are moving to Nashville, Tennessee.
The home is around 14,000 square feet, built on a lot of 1.65 acres. The home opens onto a two-story entrance hall with a grand chandelier and brilliant white walls. From there, the home includes such amenities as an outdoor pool, a wine cellar, a 15-seat home movie theatre, and a 9-car garage.
The home is located in the Oaks of Calabasas, an exclusive L.A. community on the edge of the Santa Monica Mountains. The neighborhood has great views of the mountains and has drawn a lot of celebrity residents over the years, from Justin Bieber to numerous Kardashians.
The library contains some of the home’s most unique features. Its walnut-paneled walls and bookshelves contain both a secret safe room and an 800-gallon home aquarium. This large saltwater tank includes numerous rare and expensive fish that Mr. Matthews has acquired, including clownfish and triggerfish.
Mr. Matthews keeps much of his NFL memorabilia in this striking teal room. Clay Matthews III comes from a famous family of football players. He and six of his relatives have played in the NFL, with Clay spending most of his career so far with the Green Bay Packers. After a brief stint with the Los Angeles Rams, he is now a free agent.
