Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson brings it Texas-style (think big!) when it comes to real estate. The NFL star has put his huge home in The Woodlands, TX, on the market. The luxe 10,500-square-foot estate is going for a cool $8.5 million. Ten-gallon hat not included.

A wealthy buyer will score with this picturesque address in the Houston suburbs. The ginormous property, on 9 acres of lush wooded land, backs onto a private reserve. The gated, custom home located in a master-planned community is “built for entertaining,” according to the listing.

Visitors are greeted by a long, private drive, an impressive circular driveway, and a fountain. Surrounded by manicured lawns and trees, the sprawling “French traditional” home built in 2004 offers six bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and five half-baths.

And while the interiors are grand, the exterior is where it’s at—with a whopping 1,700 square feet of living space. The backyard includes a resort-style pool, a covered lounge area with a flatscreen TV, and a kitchen.

While it’s unclear why the property is for sale, perhaps the Texas-born All-Pro, who has made Houston his off-season home, wants to focus his energy on snagging a Super Bowl ring with the Vikes this season
