If you’ve ever wanted to fish or water ski without leaving the Valley, a Gilbert home on the market for $2.5 million has you covered.

The home is owned by Jay Feely, who spent 14 years in the NFL, including with the Arizona Cardinals from 2010-13.

The home is one of 19 on a 13-acre private lake. The beachfront is a public strip, allowing residents to walk around the entire lake, realtor LaLeña Christopherson said.

The 7,958 square-foot lakefront mansion offers San Tan Mountain views and gorgeous sunsets, which can be viewed from a fire pit overlooking the lake.

Six bedrooms and seven bathrooms are spread across the property. A large master bedroom and three children’s bedrooms are separated into two wings. The children’s wing includes a game room.

The family room contains a wet bar and five TVs, out of a total of 14 on the property that includes a whole-home audio system.

“It’s a very open concept,” Christopherson said. “It’s fantastic for entertaining.”

A recent 800-square-foot expansion can be used for a game room, media room or bedroom.

If the main house isn’t enough space, plans for a 1,500-square-foot expansion have already been approved.

The property includes a guest house

A guest house serves as a fully functional one-bedroom home, with a full kitchen, family room and fireplace.

Near that guest house is an outdoor picnic area, complete with a full barbecue setup, pizza oven and picnic table.

Even the dock is loaded with amenities, including a wet bar, a TV and speakers. A boat can be dry-docked with an electronic lift.

A four-car garage has extra space for an RV or a boat.

A boat is also for sale as the lake is ideal for water skiing, tubing and fishing as it’s stocked with fish to allow enthusiasts to cast a line in the middle of the desert.
