The most expensive home ever sold in the Denver area is quietly being shopped around.

Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson and singer-songwriter wife Ciara are accepting offers, and providing tours to prospective buyers, for the mansion they own in Cherry Hills Village, sources tell BusinessDen.

The couple did not respond to requests for comment made through their foundation.

The couple paid $25 million for the home at 10 Cherry Hills Park Drive in April 2022, weeks after Wilson was traded to the Broncos by the Seattle Seahawks. At the time, the previous record for a Denver-area home sale was $16 million.

The 20,000-square-foot home on 5 acres has four bedrooms and 12 bathrooms, plus his-and-hers walk-in closets, offices and bathroom suites, according to a previous listing of the property. There’s also a 2,590-square-foot indoor swimming pool, a basketball court and a guest apartment with its own kitchen.

But Wilson’s tenure with the Broncos has been rocky. In August 2022, before Wilson had played a game for the Broncos, the team extended Wilson’s contract through 2028. But the team went 5-12 in his first season, improving somewhat to 8-9 this past season. 

Head Coach Sean Payton benched Wilson for the final two games of the season, saying he hoped the change would spark the team’s offense. But the move was widely seen as an effort to ensure Wilson didn’t get injured, because NFL teams cannot cut injured players and Wilson’s $37 million salary for 2025 becomes guaranteed if he’s on the team’s roster on March 17 of this year, according to the Denver Post.

Payton recently said in a radio interview that a decision on Wilson’s future with the Broncos will happen “sooner than later.”
