Buccaneers co-owner sells massive Tampa palace for $8.3 million

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

According to the Multiple Listing Service, the home was sold for $8.3 million. Once listed as high as $25 million, the home was most recently asking $8.95 million.

The purchaser of the home has yet to be disclosed, and a deed still has to be updated on the Hillsborough County Property Appraiser site.

Located at 706 Guisando De Avila, the home was purchased by Darcie and Joel from former gold dealer and convicted fraudster Mark Yaffe for $5.8 million in 2014.

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.

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.

The sale comes a few months after the couple also sold its Palm Beach pad for $53 million.
