Former football star Tim Tebow picked up a new mansion within a gated Jacksonville community where he’s owned a house for five years.

The philanthropist, minor-league baseball player and former University of Florida quarterback paid $3 million for a two-story, nearly 8,300-square-foot house on 1.5 acres in the Glen Kernan Golf & Country Club in South Jacksonville, according to the Jacksonville Daily Record.

Built in 2016, the five-bedroom house has an entertainment room, home theater, wine room, saltwater swimming pool and five-car garage. Tebow mortgaged the house with a Bank of America loan just under $2.4 million.

In 2014, he bought a smaller house in the Glen Kernan development for $1.4 million, and county records show he still owns it.

Tebow, 31, was a star football player at a high school just south of Jacksonville, where his non-profit Tim Tebow Foundation is now based.

He was a two-time national champion and winner of the Heisman Trophy as a player for the University of Florida Gators.

Tebow had a three-year career in the NFL with the New England Patriots, Denver Broncos and New York Jets, and has been in the minor league baseball system of the New York Mets since 2016.
