Freshly traded NFL defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul has put his six-bedroom crash pad in Montclair, NJ, on the market for $1.25 million. He bought the house last year in August for $1 million — just a few months before the New York Giants traded him to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Colonial-style, nearly 4,300-square-foot house is located just 10 miles from MetLife Stadium — perfect for Giants home games. It’s located on a quiet, tree-lined residential street, virtually indistinguishable from the other family homes nearby.
Inside, it’s bright and updated, with an unpretentious entryway that leads directly to the staircase. There’s updated hardwood flooring on the ground floor, which has a dining room with a corner built-in, and an updated kitchen with an island, stainless steel appliances, gas range, backsplash and wine fridge.
The living room has built-in bookcases, and a TV mounted over the fireplace. There’s a second TV room, with French doors leading outside, and an updated mudroom.

Upstairs, the bedrooms are large, but otherwise standard for a family home in New Jersey. There is a walk-in closet in the master bedroom with room for an extensive collection of shoes, and five bathrooms elsewhere.
In the backyard, there’s a small stone patio and detached three-car garage.
Pierre-Paul, 29, grew up in Florida, and played for the University of South Florida in Tampa — which means his move to the Buccaneers marks a return of sorts.
He was the Giants’ first-round pick in 2010 and in 2011, he led the Giants with 16.5 sacks and was named to his first Pro Bowl. The team entered Super Bowl 46 as underdogs against the New England Patriots—ultimately winning 21-17.
Pierre-Paul made headlines in 2015 when he blew off part of his right hand in a fireworks accident that sent him to the hospital for two weeks. When he returned to the field, he had seven and a half fingers, and wore a custom glove.
In a surprise move last month, the Giants traded Pierre-Paul to the Buccaneers for a third-round pick in the 2018 draft, and a swap of fourth-round picks.
