In case Joe Ingles getting traded to Portland in February or signing with Milwaukee in July weren’t stark enough reminders that the longtime Utah Jazz forward is no longer a Utah Jazz forward, his Salt Lake City house hitting the market should seal the deal.
Ingles has enlisted the help of Summit Sotheby’s International Realty president and principal broker Thomas Wright — who has a history of selling properties throughout Utah for high-profile clients — to sell his Cape Cod-style, two-story house in the St. Mary’s neighborhood near Emigration Canyon.
Ingles is asking $3.5 million for the six-bedroom, five-full bathroom and one partial-bathroom home.
“The selling of my Utah home is bittersweet,” Ingles said in a statement. “I spent eight seasons with the Jazz, and during that time you fall in love with a place and its people … but the time has come for us to sell and get settled in Milwaukee.”
According to the Summit Sotheby’s listing, the property at 2828 E. Kennedy Drive comes equipped with a “spacious master suite [which] offers a private study, recently renovated bath, and an enviable walk-in closet.”
Meanwhile, “the crown jewel” of the property is the “sprawling back yard,” which features “a pergola-covered patio, manicured lawn and garden beds, and a custom Utah Jazz sport court.”
The house also includes a security system, a jet tub, solar-power heating, central air, and an attached three-car garage.
Following his trade from the Jazz, Ingles expressed “mixed emotions” about departing the only NBA team he’d ever played for.
While some Jazz fans surely hoped that Ingles would return to Salt Lake City following the conclusion of his playing days, he has long expressed a desire to return to his native Australia with wife Renae and children Milla, Jacob, and Jack after he retires.
