TAMPA — Chez Gronk is off the market.

New England Patriots star Rob Gronkowski sold his South Tampa mansion Friday for $2 million, nearly half a million dollars more than what the 24-year-old paid for the home last year.

The gated three-story mansion in the Westshore Yacht Club features a wood-paneled elevator, custom-built fish tanks and a casino-style security system.

At 4,700 square feet, it was offered for sale fully furnished, with a pool and two Yamaha personal watercraft. The $2.08 million sale price did not include the watercraft, furniture, boat slip or personal property.

When the All-Pro tight end listed the home in August, for $2.4 million, listing agent Michael Palermo said he chose to sell because he "was not able to visit Tampa enough to enjoy the property."

A deed showing who bought the home had not yet been filed by Friday afternoon.
