Inside NFL Star Patrick Mahomes' Kansas City House
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has been rather busy on the football field, with a second Super Bowl win in 2023. But he's also been quite busy investing in real estate, with a reported four properties to his name now.
His first Kansas City property purchase was a two-bedroom condo in December 2017, followed by the 2019 purchase of a home in Kansas City, Missouri's Country Club District. The understated contemporary ranch is up for sale as of June 2023 now that his third property within Kansas City's Loch Lloyd Country Club community is built. And let's not forget about the fourth $3.37 million mansion he purchased in Westlake, Texas.
While it's very likely the football star spends time between at least a few of these properties, we're going to take a look inside the one that's now up for sale for about $3 million. After all, it's the one that he and his wife brought both their children home to when they were born.
Come take a tour of this Kansas City pad.
He Has Owned It Since 2019
Mahomes purchased the house in 2019 for around $1.75 million to $1.9 million (records don't say the exact price), almost exactly one year before he led the Chiefs to victory in the 2020 Super Bowl.
The house is 4,343 square feet with three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms.
It sits on a 1.4-acre lot by the Country Club District.
The Fireplace Is Awesome
The house was built in 1953 and has mid-century modern bones. It has an open floor plan with some built-in cabinetry and floor-to-ceiling windows.
Swanky stone fireplaces are located in the master bedroom, both living rooms and another area. The main living room has a 1950s' Art Deco-like fireplace that looks like something that could have served as a backdrop for Don Draper.
Mahomes and Brittany Spent $400,000 Renovating It
According to property records, about $400,000 has been poured into updating the nearly 70-year-old house, and we know Mahomes and Brittany did the renovations.
Listing records say the home has only been sold twice in the last 18 years, and that includes the sale to Mahomes.
They Like the Idea of Homeownership
"It's cool just to have our own house where we can grow into, and so this is definitely a big step in our life," Mahomes told Bleacher Report.
"Renting a house wasn't for us. We wanted our own place."
It's A Step Up From Renting
Owning it brought a sense of freedom to the two, who had lived in apartments or rented homes before.
"Just being able to nail stuff into the wall and not have to get, like, the sticky tabs — like, you can do whatever you want with the home now," Mahomes told Bleacher Report.
The Kitchen Is Fantastic
The kitchen is a mid-century modern style, with floor-to-ceiling glass windows and a range hood that is built into the ceiling.
It's a very cool design, although we wonder if it can catch all the smoke properly.
The Home Is Close to Arrowhead Stadium
Mahomes' pad is a short drive away to the Mission Hills Country Club and about 9 miles away from Arrowhead Stadium, where the Chiefs practice and host their home games.
Mahomes' Diet Plan Isn't Too Strict
Mahomes' diet isn't as strict as say, the diet of Tom Brady, who doesn't eat nightshades (tomatoes, eggplants) because they're not anti-inflammatory. Nor does Brady drink coffee, have caffeine, or eat fungus or dairy.
Mahomes has said he doesn't count calories, eats four to five meals a day and is known to have a barbecue rib sandwich and fries from local Kansas City eateries.
And he likes Chick-fil-A burrito bowls and chicken biscuits.
Moving in With His High School Sweetheart
Mahomes was born in Tyler, Texas, and attended Whitehouse High School in the small city of Whitehouse, Texas. In 10th grade, he met Matthews.
She and he became a couple and have remained together ever since.
He proposed to Matthews on Sept. 9, 2020, at Arrowhead Stadium.
Four of Brittany's Engagement Rings Would Rival the Price of This Home
Reportedly, the engagement ring Mahomes purchased for his longtime high school sweetheart had an 8- to 10-carat emerald-cut diamond ring planted on a diamond-encrusted band.
It's rumored to be worth between $350,000 and $800,000.
If the ring cost $500,000, that's about a fourth of the price of this house.
There's a Wet Bar
He can afford it, of course, because Mahomes is the holder of a 10-year, $503 million contract, which is the largest contract in NFL history.
It's also the second-largest contract in the history of sports. Only soccer legend Lionel Messi has a bigger one. He signed a $673.9 million deal with FC Barcelona in 2017.
The Wet Bar Holds the TV
The couple kept the wet bar and its built-in storage, and for good reason.
Those cabinets aren't for storing booze, they hide a large flat-screen television.
A Lot Can Change in Six Years
Mahomes was a triple-threat athlete in high school, where he played football, baseball and basketball. During his senior year, Mahomes threw a 16-strikeout no-hitter.
It's crazy to think that was the 2013-2014 year, and that Mahomes would go on to win a Super Bowl just six short years later.
Their Growing Family
The two announced in September 2020 that a baby girl was on the way in this touching birth announcement.
(We told you about the ring, right?)
Perfect for Events
The house proved to be the perfect setting for the couple's baby shower in late 2020.
Making Way for Baby
Sterling Skye was born on Feb. 20, 2021, just a few weeks after her dad played in his second Super Bowl.
Let's just say she seems to like the house, too.
Meet Steel and Silver
And let's not forget about the couple's two fur babies — a pitbull named Steel (left) and a Cane Corso named Silver.
The dogs have their very own Instagram.
Steel Likes to Watch TV
Steel, seen here with Mahomes watching some TV on the couch, was a 2016 gift to Brittany.
Interestingly, Mahomes used to be afraid of dogs. "Until I was in high school," Mahomes told The Kansas City Star. "Then I went straight to a pit bull."
Now in love with the blocky-headed breed, he's an advocate for them, spreading the word that they're not inherently malicious.
Another Look at Steel (and the Living Room)
Steel, seen here carrying a sloth dog toy, peers out over a plush leather couch.
It looks like the couple kept the fireplace poker set stationed by the hearth, although they opted to put a dog kennel in the corner where a chest once stood.
Kisses in the Kitchen
The dogs are even allowed on the kitchen counter because who doesn't need a canine sous chef?
Chilling in the Corner Office
Brittany carved out a spot for a corner office in the living room, near the television. This time it appears that Silver has taken over the workplace and is set to max out the couple's credit cards on Chewy.com.
Also, you can get your dogs' photos printed on a box of Milk Bones like this couple did.
Or maybe that was Silver's work.
Saving Up for a New House
One of the reasons why people love Mahomes is because he seems like a pretty down-to-earth guy.
Before Mahomes signed that record-breaking contract, and while Mahomes was in his rookie year, he and Brittany were living in an upstairs guest bedroom in Brittany's father's house to save some money.
Before: The Closet
The couple's closet is perhaps their most beloved space.
It's actually the same closet shown in the old listing photos, but it's been renovated and expanded to the couple's taste.
After: The Closet
"We renovated a lot of the house. The last thing was the shoe room," Mahomes told Bleacher Report. "That has been something that I've been wanting for the last six, seven years at least."
The new shoe room has lighted shelving and holds at least 180 pairs of kicks — which is exactly the number that Mahomes stopped collecting shoes.
He'll Never Forget About His Shoes Now
"When you don't have enough room, I feel like you lose the value of some of your shoes," Mahomes said. "Some of the shoes that you've worn once, you forget about cuz you don't see 'em."
Not exactly a relatable problem for most folks, but most folks don't have a $500 million contract.
His Favorite Shoes? The Yeezy Triple Black 750s
"These right here, these are my babies," Mahomes told Bleacher Report, pulling a pair of Yeezy Triple Black 750s from a lighted shelf.
These Adidas shoes were made in conjunction with Kanye West and sell for an average of $1,100, according to Stock X data.
Each Pair Can Be Worn Twice a Year
With 180 pairs of shoes, Mahomes says he can wear one pair about twice a year.
Some of those pairs include:
Don't Think About Walking Off With His Shoes
There's also a camera in the closet, which Mahomes claimed was for watching his brother, Jackson Mahomes, when he visited. "That way, I can look and make sure all my shoes are still here," he said.
Jackson is a star on TikTok, where he has over 1.1 million followers.
Brittany Likes the Closet, Too
Brittany is also a huge fan of the closet, which she often used as a backdrop for Instagram shots that help promote her company, Brittany Lynne Fitness, which provides online training and fitness classes.
She also has a partnership with Balance Athletica.
There's a Display Space for Sunglasses, Too
Mahomes loves sunglasses and was the first NFL player to sign an endorsement deal with Oakley in 2019.
Fast-forward to early 2021, and now Mahomes has his own line of Oakley sunglasses.
They look similar to the ones on the second shelf from the top and retail for $196.
There Are Four Fireplaces
The home has four fireplaces in total.
This one isn't featured in the old listing photos, but it can be seen on Brittany's Instagram.
Must Love Dogs
The couple absolutely loves their dogs, and they are in good hands. Steel, the pit bull, was diagnosed with epilepsy.
"After tons of testing and procedures my baby boy has been diagnosed with epilepsy!" wrote Brittany on Instagram. "He is on medicine now and we are going to begin giving him CBD oils to hopefully help eliminate seizures and any stress or anxiety! While this won’t change his life in any way, I will just be keeping a close eye on him and will continue giving him the spoiled life he deserves! He is going to be okay and that is all that matters to me."
Room for the Dogs
Brittany says the home's spacious yard was probably the "biggest thing for us" because the dogs have room to play.
Here, Silver takes a big jump to grab a ball, while Steel looks on with a worried face.
They Chose Kansas City Over Texas
The couple originally planned to spend the offseason renting an Airbnb while shopping for a house in Texas, according to GQ. But then they saw this house, and Mahomes decided to just go for it.
GQ interviewed Mahomes just a week after the two had moved in during the summer of 2020.
There's a Wine Cellar
Mahomes and Brittany spent the offseason lockdown days here, so we're sure they put the wine cellar to good use, even after considering Mahomes' offseason workout routines.
Mahomes' schedule? He woke up at 7 a.m., worked out at 9 a.m. for two-and-a-half hours, then headed to lunch and sometimes a virtual meeting with his teammates. Then, he played video games from noon till 2 p.m. But during the football season, he stays away from video games entirely.
Before: The Gym
They also renovated and expanded the gym area (or moved its location entirely), which is large enough for professional-grade equipment and at least one Peloton bike. Mahomes' screen name is 2PM.
"I'm so damn competitive that I kill myself," he told GQ. "I see the leaderboard, and I see that, like, Brian from North Carolina is catching me, and I'm like: 'There's no way.'"
After: The Gym
Brittany also put the couple's home gym to good use.
It's where she filmed most of the workout videos that she posted to her Instagram.
The Dogs Like the Gym
The big, friendly rescue dogs were also known to like the gym.
This view gives another good shot of the gym, outfitted with padded floors and renovated with a mirrored wall.
A Screened-In Porch Overlooks the Backyard
Mahomes' father was a professional baseball player who played Major League Baseball for several teams for over a decade, so Mahomes had the opportunity to meet star athletes at a young age.
He talked to star players like Alex Rodriguez, asking questions about how they hit a baseball, absorbing the information.
A View From the Top
The future Chiefs quarterback also studied how some professional athletes were kind and warm, while others were unapproachable.
Mahomes decided that if he were ever to make it to the big leagues, he would be the kind of athlete that was gracious and inviting to fans.
Heck, he even sent the GQ journalist a 12-pack of Coors Light as a thank you for interviewing him.
The Owner's Suite Is Enormous
Of course, Mahomes made the big time, and he made it fast.
The Chiefs picked Mahomes in the first round of the 2017 NFL draft (10th overall). The team then signed him to a four-year, $16.42 million contract with a $10 million signing bonus.
It's crazy that even with that $10 million bonus, he stayed with his girlfriend in her dad's house.
It's Bigger Than a House
The owner's suite is the size of an entire house at 1,250 square feet when including the laundry, closet, bathroom and exercise room.
In fact, it's only 500 square feet less than the average home size in Kansas City, where the typical house is 1,782 square feet.
Adding Their Own Style
And what would a Mahomes suite be without a giant, dog-friendly bed?
It's One of the More Expensive Properties in the Area
Mahomes' home is also one of the most expensive places in the area.
According to realtor.com, the luxurious house is 765 percent more expensive than nearby properties.
There's a Urinal in the Bathroom
It's not uncommon for athletes to have a urinal installed in their bathroom (Shaq has one). This house came with one already installed.
Additionally, the owner's bathroom has a large walk-in shower and a water closet.
A Bad Super Bowl
Mahomes and the Chiefs had a terrible Super Bowl LV, with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers trouncing them 31-9. The Chiefs couldn't stop Tampa's offense, and it was the first game that Mahomes ever quarterbacked where he didn't throw a touchdown. The nine points were scored via three field goals.
"I wasn’t getting the ball out on time. The receivers were running routes not exactly where I thought they were going to be at. And the offensive line, they were good at some times, and sometimes they let guys through," Mahomes told reporters after the game. "When you’re playing a good defense like that, you’ve got to be on the same page as an offense. And we weren’t today. And that’s why we played so bad."
The Exterior Is Stunning
In the backyard is a large pool with a hot tub, along with large patios and a rose garden.
A screened-in porch overlooks the elevated pool area.
The Outside Is Perfectly Manicured
It would take a whole lot of Mahomes' Magic Crunch cereal sales to save up for a place even half as nice as Mahomes'.
What, you haven't heard of Hy-Vee's limited edition, frosted-flake-like cereal? The food company has been making it a Kansas City exclusive since 2019.
In 2020, Hy-Vee ordered 600,000 boxes.
There Are Places to Sit Outside
You can buy a box on Amazon for $12. Although we wouldn't recommend it.
Not only do non-scalped cereal boxes go for $4 at retail, but all the proceeds benefited the quarterback's 15 and the Mahomies Foundation. Mahomes' 15 and the Mahomies Foundation "is dedicated to improving the lives of children," according to the organization's website.
The Dogs Can Play Here
Mahomes' charitable practices don't end there. The young gunslinger partnered with Community America and helped build tiny homes for veterans in Kansas City in January 2020.
"It’s awesome. Just to be a part of this with Community America and to be able to come out here and help out some veterans of our country is something that’s truly special," Mahomes said to a local news outlet. "And they’re doing a lot of great work here, and hopefully, we can help out a little bit today."
There's a Large Pool, Too
Of course, no celebrity mansion would be complete without a pool.
The Pool Comes in Handy for At-Home Workouts
The couple shared this photo by the pool in March 2020 with the hashtag #quarantineandworkout.
The Dogs Like the Pool, Too
The dogs also take to the pool.
Here, Silver takes a big leap into the crystal-clear water.
Although They Don't Like Getting Wet. Or Do They?
The downside of playing in a pool? Getting wet. Although Silver is good for it.
This Instagram photo is captioned "Swimming is my fave hobby."
Sunshine for Days
Yes, the pool is perhaps the highlight of the backyard, but the lawn and putting green (yes, putting green) also add to the outdoor fun.
The Perfect Backdrop
The backyard is especially ideal for the perfect Easter family portrait.
This one was taken a few years before baby Patrick was born in late 2022.
Even in Fall
It's even proved to create a stunning fall backdrop.
And in Winter
It can also be a gorgeous winter wonderland.
Did We Mention They Have a Putting Green?
The house is within walking distance of two of Kansas City's best golf courses, but it also has a putting green.
Not Leaving Kansas City Any Time Soon
The family of four says they expect to be living in Kansas City for a very long time. "Twenty years-plus," Mahomes said.
Chiefs fans surely hope so!
