"The Hawk," Dashon Goldson, recently purchased a posh condominium in the beach-side community of Marina Del Rey, California. The football star reportedly coughed up a cool $5.5 million for the ocean-front apartment.
According to Realtor.com, the top floor condo sports an open floor plan measuring 1700 square feet. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide beautiful views of the ocean and the mountains. The master bedroom consists of dual baths completely made of marble while the living room sports a gas-fireplace. The home features a modern modular kitchen and a formal dining area as well.
The building offers many other luxury facilities like a spa, a modern fitness center, an infinity pool and a screening room. A recreation center is also available for the residents.
Goldson is currently gearing up for the current season of Super Bowl XLVII, which will be held Sunday, Feb. 3, 2013. San Francisco 49ers will be playing against the Baltimore Ravens in New Orleans.
Goldson made his career debut playing for the San Francisco 49ers in 2007. However, in 2011 he tested the waters when he considered a deal with the New England Patriots but returned to the SF 49ers stating that he wanted to be a part of the 'building stage' of the team.
Goldson signed a contract of $6.212 million with the team to play for the current season. His contract is set to expire this season. His contract will soon be finalized according to reports, which say that the possibility seems high.
Goldson is famous for his hard play. He has been fined several times for his "unnecessary roughness". More recently, he admitted that the referee's decision to fine him for his alleged hit on Green Bay's DuJuan Harris was a fair one.
"It was a good call by the ref. If it was helmet-to-helmet, good call. But it wasn't late." Goldson told 49ersspin.
"I just play football, at the end of the day; I don't try to hurt anybody." he added.
