    Shocker: Fred Smoot's Minnesota House in Disrepair; Not Selling

    [size=12pt]Shocker: Fred Smoot's Minnesota House in Disrepair; Not Selling[/size]

    Smoot, of course, is now a Washington Redskin. This means his former 5,812 square foot home in Eden Prairie, Minnesota is up for sale. The home is now listed at $849,000 which is down from an initial listing price of $1.2 million. Thanks to an email tip from a reader, we now know that the neighbors are angry.

    From our emailer:

    The house is in major disrepair. Neighbors have been complaining left and right. The sprinkler system hasn't worked in over a year, weeds are chest high, no grass left, dead trees. See attached taken this morning. I've heard his realtor can't even get a hold of him. I've heard of neighbors investigating suing him for bringing property values down. While living in our neighborhood he was truly the "boat man". Late night parties, lots of women, loud, obnoxious, didn't take care of his property.
    And the listing:
    http://www.therealtyhouse.com/idx/findhome/SearchDetails.asp?ln=3507848&AMID=&CID=&PT=AL&CF=A

    EXQUISITE, MUST SEE CUSTOM HOME. MAIN FLOOR MASTER W/SITTING RM. 22' CEILINGS IN GREAT RM. HUGE KITCHEN, GRANITE FIREPLACE, SUN RM. SCREENED PORCH W/HOT TUB. CATWALK OVER GREAT RM. BONUS RM UPSTAIRS. BUILT IN BAR IN BILLIARDS RM. LARGE HOME THEATER, SAUNA
    Doesn't say anything about needing to re-sand the floors from all the stripper droppings left behind by Freddy's move back to DC.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    I wouldn't exactly say that the weeds are chest high... unless his neighbors are really, really small.

    I thought it would be lake side property.

    If the house/property is in such bad shape, why doesn't the city do some code enforcement?

    Everything. I am sure the cover on the tub does not work.

    Why would you allow your house to look like that? The guy makes Bank, you think he could afford some renovations.

    I'm sure it's Lake FRONT property.
    Go down the hill to the right in that picture and I bet there's a dock.

    I'm sure it's not really in "Disrepair", other than the lawn looks like shit.
    That's Eden Prairie for you.
