SURRY, Va. -- The white brick home that housed former NFL star Michael Vick's dogfighting operation has been listed for sale for $1.1 million.
The listing bills the 15-acre country estate in rural southeastern Virginia as "the famous Michael Vick house."
The house failed to sell during an auction in mid-December, disappointing a real estate developer who has about $500,000 tied up in the place. At the time, Wilbur Ray Todd Jr. rejected the only serious bid -- $747,000, the property's assessed value for real estate tax purposes.
Vick is serving a 23-month sentence for a dogfighting conspiracy. The suspended Atlanta Falcons quarterback and three co-defendants raised pit bulls and trained them for fighting in the area behind the 4,600-square-foot house. Several dogs that did not perform well in test fights were executed.
The 1915 Moonlight Road property has five bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, two fireplaces, cathedral ceilings, walk-in closets and an attached, two-car garage, according to the listing, which also notes that horses are allowed.
