Buccaneers co-owner selling massive Tampa palace for nearly $9 million


Tampa Bay Buccaneers co-owner Darcie Glazer Kassewitz, and her husband Joel, are selling their gigantic Tampa mansion, which is literally modeled after a 17th century royal palace.

Located at 706 Guisando De Avila, the home was purchased from former gold dealer and convicted fraudster Mark Yaffe for $5.8 million in 2014 by an anonymous LLC, long rumored to be connected to the Glazer Family.

However, the home's new listing agent, Jennifer Zales of Coldwell Banker Residential, confirmed that the home is in fact owned by Darcie and her husband.

The 28,295-square-foot Avila estate comes with 10-bedrooms and 13-bathrooms, as well as a ballroom, an executive library, 14 fireplaces, a wine room, an elevator, a pool and spa, and more. Once listed as high as $25 million, the home is currently asking $8,950,000.

The announcement comes about a week after the couple also listed their Palm Beach pad for $55 million.  At the time, the listing agent told Realtor.com that Glazer Kassewitz is selling the home to be closer to the Tampa Bay area.

Glazer Kassewitz is a co-owner of the Bucs (along with her brothers), and she also leads the Glazer Vision Foundation and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Foundation.
