Tampa Bay Buccaneers Co-Owner Selling $55M Mansion in Palm Beach

Giles Bradford/Douglas Elliman Darcie Glazer Kassewitz —a co-owner of the defending NFL champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers —and her husband, Joel Kassewitz , are selling their waterfront estate in one of the nation’s hottest luxury markets.

Listed for $55 million , the Palm Beach, FL, mansion is touted as a rare offering.

“The main part that sets this property apart is the property itself. You don’t find 2 acres in Palm Beach,” explains the listing agent, Gary Pohrer of Douglas Elliman. “Palm Beach is made of smaller properties—so to be able to have this much space is kind of unheard of.”

Measuring 10,171 square feet, the home offers 220 feet of waterfront on the Intracoastal Waterway. It is private, something Pohrer says the sellers enjoyed. Glazer Kassewitz is co-owner of the Buccaneers and leads both the Glazer Vision Foundation and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Foundation.

The couple have owned the home since 2018, and Pohrer says it was the privacy that attracted them to this house. A parcel of this size in Palm Beach usually accommodates more than just one home.

“The [property] next door to the north, there are two houses on it, and the one to the south, there are three houses, maybe four on the same area. The person who buys this property is going to want the security and the privacy,” says Pohrer.

Collier was a prominent developer, and Florida’s Collier County bears his name.

Collier Read died in 2008 at the age of 89.

After their purchase three years ago, the sellers updated a number of areas in the classic home. The kitchen, some of the upstairs bathrooms, the front office, and the theater room all received makeovers.

The spacious main house has four bedrooms. Overnight guests have the option of enjoying a two-bedroom guesthouse.

A lovely living room offers views in both directions—the large pool area in front or of the waterway in back.

The mansion sits on a rare spot where the very slim Intracoastal Waterway widens. The expanse of water on the home’s back side is rare for this area.“To have a water view that is a mile wide is significant. If you go to other areas, you could throw a football two times and be over the Intracoastal,” Pohrer says. “It’s something that this house has that others may not.” Pool Giles Bradford/Douglas Elliman Pool Giles Bradford/Douglas Elliman The water side offers another amenity for any buyers who want to hone their golf game in private.“You’ve got this amazing area with a little golf hole with its own green, hitting areas, and a bunker that is kind of fun to play with,” Pohrer says. “The pool is on the mainland side of the house, […]
