Buccaneers co-owner’s massive Tampa palace
Last April, Tampa Bay Buccaneers co-owner Darcie Glazer Kassewitz, and her husband Joel, sold their gigantic Tampa mansion, which is literally modeled after a 17th century royal palace.

According to the Multiple Listing Service, the home was sold for $8.3 million.

Located at 706 Guisando De Avila, the home was purchased by Darcie and Joel from former gold dealer and convicted fraudster Mark Yaffe for $5.8 million in 2014.

The 28,295-square-foot Avila estate comes with 10 bedrooms and 13 bathrooms, as well as a ballroom, an executive library, 14 fireplaces, a wine room, an elevator, a pool and spa, and more.
 
Glazer Kassewitz is a co-owner of the Bucs (along with her brothers), and she also leads the Glazer Vision Foundation and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Foundation.

The sale comes a few months after the couple also sold its Palm Beach pad for $53 million.
