A retired Denver Broncos offensive lineman who started in the 2014 Super Bowl put his Cherry Hills Village mansion on the market for $4.3 million this month.
Orlando Franklin and his wife Kiaana listed the 8,440-square-foot home at 41 Cherry Hills Farm Drive on July 1. The couple purchased the property for $2.6 million in 2019, according to property records.
Over the last two years, the modern farmhouse has been extensively renovated inside and out, according to listing agent Ty Dokken with Compass. The six-bedroom, nine-bathroom home’s new finishes include a gourmet kitchen, marble accents throughout, raised ceilings, and a finished basement.
Franklin was drafted by the Broncos in 2011 and started 70 of the 71 games he played for the team, including the Peyton Manning-led seasons from 2012 to 2014, according to ESPN. The Broncos lost to the Seahawks 43-8 in the 2014 Super Bowl.
In 2015, Franklin was signed by the San Diego Chargers and was released after two seasons. He played in one game for the Washington Redskins in 2017, but retired a year later, citing family and health as reasons, according to ESPN.
Franklin now hosts a weekday radio show with Sandy Clough on Denver sports radio station 104.3 The Fan.
Another former Broncos player, Brock Osweiler, also recently listed his home for sale.
Address: 41 Cherry Hills Farm Drive, Cherry Hills Village
Listing price: $4.25 million
Stats: The home originally built in 1993 features 5,538 square feet above ground level, plus a 2,902-square-foot finished basement with a home theater, billiards room and wine cellar.
The finer things: Sitting on a nearly one-acre lot, the property features a massive, newly renovated backyard with artificial turf, a pool, a hot tub, a sport court with basketball and pickleball and a putting green.
“People go weak in the knees when they walk out to the backyard,” Dokken said.
The residence is tucked away in the gated Cherry Hills Farm community and has access to the Cherry Hills bridle path.
“Almost 90 percent of the homes around here are being bought and renovated by young families, and it’s really more than just a neighborhood,” Dokken said. “The community spends time together, but you still get the privacy and quietness of Cherry Hills.”
