Clay Matthews lists Los Angeles ‘forever home’ for $29.995 million


Former Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews and his wife Casey Matthews are listing their newly completed French Provincial estate in Los Angeles for $29.995 million.

Mr. Matthews purchased the land for the property for $2.6 million way back in 2013, when he and Ms. Matthews were dating. They started construction on the home after they were married in 2015, they said.

The couple completed construction last year and had originally planned that it would be their "forever home," they said. Mr. Matthews, brother of former NFL linebacker Casey Matthews and son of former NFL linebacker Clay Matthews Jr., played for roughly a decade for the Green Bay Packers before a stint with the Los Angeles Rams but was released last year. He is currently a free agent.

Now that Mr. Matthews, 35, isn’t tied to California for work, the couple started thinking about relocating closer to where his brother lives in the Nashville, Tenn., area. "We want the kids to grow up with their cousins," Ms. Matthews said.

The 1.65-acre estate is in a gated community called the Oaks of Calabasas, which has also drawn celebrities like the Kardashians, and has views of the Santa Monica Mountains.

The main house is about 14,000 square feet and has a dramatic white wood-paneled entry hall with double height ceilings and a large living room with antique wood beam ceilings repurposed from an old barn in Wisconsin, the Matthewses said. Large glass doors open to the pool.
