Former Buc Mike Alstott sells his home for $1.9 million

ST. PETERSBURG — Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers fullback Mike Alstott sold his home near Treasure Island on Wednesday for $1.9 million, more than double what he bought it for in 1999.

The 6,000-square-foot home in Yacht Club Estates, a waterfront enclave branching off the Treasure Island Causeway, overlooks half a football field of the Intracoastal Waterway fringed with royal palms, a listing shows.

The five-bedroom mansion also features a multilevel office, a wine refrigerator, a card-playing den, an outdoor kitchen and a hand-painted rendition of Michelangelo's The Creation of Adam, the artwork from the Sistine Chapel.

Alstott bought the home in 1999 for $775,000, property records show, and later bought two neighboring waterfront lots for nearly $1.7 million. Those lots were put on the market in May, but their listings have been withdrawn.

Alstott, who retired after 12 years with the Bucs in 2008, coaches the Northside Christian School Mustangs. Alstott, who could not be reached, will stay in the Tampa Bay area, said Coldwell Banker agent Tammy Campbell Plummer, who listed the home.

The home was bought by Teresa Bratcher-Evans of Sarasota, selling agent Phil Gibson said.
