Raiders to Redskins: Donald Penn Selling Encino Home

Three-time Pro Bowler Donald Penn is tackling the real estate market after being signed on to the Washington Redskins earlier this year. After playing for Tampa Bay and Oakland, Penn decided to finalize his transition to Washington, D.C. by selling his luxurious Encino, California mediterranean mansion for $5.2 million. Although the Redskins have lost their first two games of the season, will he score a touchdown with a buyer soon?

The 11,000-square-foot property is the epitome of French Mediterranean with iconic plaster walls and a terra cotta roof. At eight bedrooms and a whopping 11 bathrooms, the grandiosity surpasses typical mediterranean-inspired abodes. And, while the home doesn’t sit on the beautiful coast of Southern France, it does feature a sparkling pool with a built-in spa and expansive backyard (the perfect place to practice those offensive tackles). The lush greenery contrasts from the warm color scheme as large bay windows allow natural light to pour into the home.
