Hulk Hogan's New Gulf-Side Pad
Pro wrestling's Hulk Hogan purchased a $3.3 million house in Clearwater, Fla., just a week after selling his house in the neighboring town of Belleair. The former WWE star's new house, pictured above, is 5,412 square feet and was built in 2009.
Hogan (real name Terry Bollea) originally listed his Belleair mansion for $25 million in 2006. But after going through a bitter divorce with Linda Bollea in 2009 and the housing crash that hit Florida particularly hard, Hogan (pictured at left) eventually was able to sell the property for $6.2 million in April. His former house, a whopping 17,145 square feet, has five bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a five-car garage and multiple fireplaces. The 1.5-acre waterfront property also has a dock with two boat lifts, and a pool with a two-tier waterfall. (See some lush pictures here).
Hogan's new house is less extravagant, but still fit for a wrestling king. The five-bedroom, six-bathroom home features a media room with surround sound and a cozy wet bar, a 1,000-bottle wine cellar, and even a wood-paneled elevator for easy access to the second floor. The master suite has epic views of the Gulf, its own "morning kitchen," and a massive walk-in closet and spa-style bath. Outside, there is direct access to the beach, and a self-cleaning salt-system pool with wiring for surround sound.
After struggling for several years to unload his former manse, which was featured on the reality show "Hogan Knows Best," it seems like the Hulkster can finally relax, and quite comfortably at that.
