A North Attleborough mansion previously owned by New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez is back on the market after undergoing extensive renovations.
Arif Khan, 24, who bought the home last November for $1 million, has listed the property at $1.6 million and said he has already received interest from potential buyers.
Khan said he spent about $100,000 renovating the 8,130-square-foot home, which has five bedrooms and eight bathrooms. When he bought the home, pipes had burst, the garage and home theater were in poor condition, and the sprinklers were broken, he said.
“When you looked at it in the beginning you would think it was a money pit,” Khan said. “But I ended up bringing it back.”
Hernandez was living in the single-family home in July 2013 when he murdered Odin L. Lloyd of Dorchester in a nearby industrial park. He was convicted two years later. In April 2017, Hernandez committed suicide in his prison cell.
Information about the house is available at a Zillow listing.
Khan, a Patriots fan, said that after he bought the home his friends were “freaking out about it.”
“We can only imagine how many of the other players, like Gronk and stuff, have stepped foot in that house and thrown parties in that house,” Khan said, referring to Patriots star Rob Gronkowski.
Khan said that the backyard is “really huge” and that the house has an outdoor grill the size of “three normal grills.”
“It’s definitely made for a football player, or like an athlete,” Khan said.
Khan said he only stayed in the home for a couple of weeks.
“I personally wouldn’t stay there alone because it’s so big,” Khan said. “You get lost honestly . . . I feel like a family of six [or] seven kids would definitely enjoy it.”
About a dozen people have scheduled tours, he said.
“I’m hoping, honestly, that I attract a Patriots player to hopefully invest in this house for himself and his family,” Khan said.
