Adrian Peterson spends his football seasons in chilly Minneapolis, carrying the football for the NFL's Vikings. But the Texas-raised running back goes back to the Lone Star State in the offseason, making his home in The Woodlands, an affluent community in the Houston metro area.
Or he used to, anyways. Peterson's sprawling property has just hit the real estate market with a cool $8.5 million price tag.
Odds are, you can't afford his house. But you can at least see the inside to see how the NFL star lives. Check out these 15 photos of AP's Houston home.
View From The Sky
It's a house fit for a king, with a backyard to match: Peterson's home sits on nine acres of undeveloped forest, offering peace and privacy to its residents.
The home itself has plenty of room to stretch out, with more than 10,500 square feet built and designed in the ornate French traditional style.
Safe And Secure
Peterson's house borders a private reserve, and features a gated entrance to keep autograph hounds at bay. The private drive leads to a circular driveway featuring a fountain.
Peterson's interior decorator opted for bold, intricate designs that project a sense of royalty. Which, given AP's own assertion that he's the best running back in NFL history, does seem like a good match for his personality.
Plenty of room for family to belly up at the Thanksgiving table.
An open concept gives the kitchen easy views of other rooms in the home, as well as the outdoor pool.
You could choose worse places to enjoy some scrambled eggs and toast.
The living room's open-air space is great for entertaining -- in fact, it seems like a great setup for enjoying a football game while feasting on a buffet set up in the kitchen.
Peterson's house boasts an incredible six bedrooms, including this master layout painted in rich, warm colors.
You think six bedrooms is crazy? How about eight bathrooms? Yes, Peterson's Houston home has all the plumbing you'll ever need.
Another great entertaining spot, Peterson's game room features a pool table, a professional bar, and some fun touch-screen bar games to keep guests occupied.
Great for watching film, but also great for the cinephile that requires a theater experience on the regular.
Back Of House
Built in 2004, the house is placed in a planned community that was "built for entertaining." The backyard setup would certainly seem to fulfill that promise.
A lot of Houston-area homes set a pool in their backyards. But not many of them have such an aesthetically pleasing setup as what Peterson has at his disposal.
Yet another great setting for entertaining, or for escaping the punishing Texas sun on a hot day. Of course, there's a TV screen to watch football. The real question, though: Will the home's next owners be Vikings fans?
