Monday afternoon, ARLnow.com broke the news that Alex Ovechkin‘s former Arlington, Virginia home is up for rent. For those of you whose Ovechkin shrines are missing that one final piece, relocating it into the Russian machine’s former basement and having him be your landlord is the only move.
According to rhlarlington.com, the 4-bedroom colonial features 5,000 square feet of living space, a gourmet kitchen with top-notch appliances to prepare homemade nachos, a spacious master bedroom where you can play FIFA shirtless with your friends, a master bath featuring a whirlpool tub and separate shower to relax your aching muscles, and a spacious rec room downstairs where you can safely do push-ups after losing video game bets to your Russian friends.
The security deposit is just a small chunk of change, $7,950, and tenants are required to be non-smokers. Pets are allowed. (Do ferrets count?)
Buck & Associates Realtor Billy Buck tells ARLnow.com that the home has been on the market for a few weeks. Lulls in the rental market, he says, are expected around now because of the holidays.
The house, which has been up for rent several times over the last few years, was assessed at $1,572,000 by the county last January. The house and 11,603-square-foot lot was Ovechkin’s home until he purchased another $4.3-million colonial in McLean in 2012.
