Eli Manning Tries To Tackle the Sale of His $3.8M Mississippi Mansion

Former New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning tossed his Oxford, MS , mansion back into the real estate game.

The two-time Super Bowl champ, who retired in 2020 and then served as an NFL analyst during the 2021 season, first put the 7,450-square-foot home up for sale in 2019. It’s come on and off the market three times, but the $3,800,000 asking price never changed. Could it be he’s not quite ready to part with his manse?

The upscale retreat features four bedroom suites, a pool house with a half-bath, and a one-bedroom guesthouse. ‘Southern sophisticated’

Though the home was built in 2009, it has vintage charm, thanks to a wraparound porch and high ceilings. The living room is accented by exposed wood beams.

“It was built not to be flashy or ostentatious, just Southern sophisticated,” says listing agent Mark McCleary , of Cannon Cleary McGraw . “There’s not really been any renovations. This is all original. It was built to be like an antebellum Mississippi mansion, although it does have the technology of a smart house.”

The 1.7-acre property is part of the Old Country Club neighborhood. And it’s next to Lamar Park with walking trails, a lake, and a sculpture garden.

The open layout of the first floor allows easy flow between the kitchen and living room. There are two dining spaces and multiple seating areas.

A screened patio comes with a floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace to keep everyone cozy. Out back, there’s a pool, spa, and patio.

For the wine collector, it doesn’t get any better than the huge cellar, which comes with enough space to host tastings and dinners. Record price

This property is the highest-priced single-family home in Oxford, which has a median listing price of $339,450.

“As far as the buyer, it would be someone who appreciates the quality of construction and has a sophisticated palate,” says McCleary.

“Oxford has seen a major explosion,” he continues. “People are leaving metropolitan markets for smaller towns that have the restaurant culture and the music without the highway traffic and pollution. … It’s a great place for raising a family. Most alumni spend their whole life trying to move back here.”
