Hey, Hulkamaniacs, what’cha gonna do when a Tampa Bay property is put on the market and runs wild on you?!?
That’s the question Hulk Hogan fans now have to ponder, as the wrestling star has moved his family to Miami Beach and put his mansion near Tampa on the market. The cost on agreeing on terms for this Florida home loan? A cool $25 million.
The Hulkster (real name: Terry Bollea) and his wife, Linda, moved last month to a new $12 million bayfront estate on Miami Beach. They wanted their children, Brooke, 18, and Nick, 15, to pursue singing and acting careers. Brooke has already taken advantage of her father’s name to sing the national anthem at a hockey game a couple years ago.
Now the 17,000-square-foot, French-style mansion – familiar to fans of the family’s VH1 reality TV series – Hogan Knows Best, is on the market. The home has seven fireplaces, 2.3-acre grounds overlooking the Intercoastal Waterway and Gulf of Mexico, a guesthouse, swimming pool, waterfall and four-car garage.
“You can get lost in it,” said Marcia Ellis of Coldwell Banker. We guess that’s a good thing.
Hogan still owns a more modest place on Clearwater Beach, along with a home in Los Angeles that’s on the market for a paltry $5.9 million.
“I’ve got to downscale,” he told The Miami Herald recently. “We’ll head toward Miami like the Beverly Hillbillies.”
