Former National Football League player and convicted murderer Aaron Hernandez was at his prime when he lost it to drugs and killed his friend Odin Lloyd.
Hernandez had a contract with one of NFL’s leading teams, having earned a seven-year contract with New England Patriots. He worked in tandem with fellow tight end Rob Gronkowski to make history as the first duo ever to catch not less than five touchdowns passes for the same team in two sequential seasons.
Besides all the money and fame, Hernandez also had a family; he was a father to a lovely daughter called Avielle Janelle.
The same month that Janelle was born, Hernandez purchased a marvelous 5,647 square-foot mansion in North Attleboro, Massachusetts.
Anyone else would expect such a person to focus on his career and his life as a father but that wasn’t the case for Hernandez.
Now, he won’t be spending time with his daughter like he would love to, neither will he be living in his house, having been slapped with life sentence in the death of Lloyd.
For someone who didn’t catch a scene from the jury’s tour of the home during Hernandez’s trial, the home is a nice one indeed. Besides, it’s also in a wonderful neighborhood – Westwood Estates.
The house is big and boasts of a boisterous second floor balcony overlooking the foyer and the family room. It delivers what one would need to give his guests a memorable experience.
As for ventilation, there is nothing to worry about as the house is fitted with floor-to-ceiling windows that shower the room with adequate natural light.
Although the bathroom isn’t as spacious as what defines most celebrity lives, it’s larger than what one would need and what many will ever use in their lifetime. It has five full and two half bathrooms.
The house’s kitchen, an area many football players care about, is properly fitted with spacious cabinets plus a wide enough kitchen worktop.
Utilities fitted in the home’s basement include a custom bar, theater room, ice bath, and a sauna.
The master bedroom boasts of a private balcony, a gas fireplace and a wet bar with a refrigerator.
You may be wondering who’s actually selling the home, now that Hernandez is in jail. Well, records reveal that the house is being sold by the court system. Bristol County Superior Court Judge Richard T. Moses ruled that the house should be sold and the proceeds handed over to the court for later distribution.
