Take a look: Jesse Ventura's former home up for sale at $720K


For a cool $720,000, you can own the former abode of "The Body."

The five-bedroom home at 9978 Walnut Grove Lane N. in Maple Grove is listed for sale by Necklen & Oakland, and is notable for being the one-time home of former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura.

Co-listing broker Glenn Necklen told BringMeTheNews he believes the house, which totals 5,100 square feet, was owned by the wrestling legend-turned politician while he was the Mayor of Brooklyn Park during the early '90s.

"Custom built on 1+ manicured acres providing ultimate privacy & beautiful pond views, located in the premier Delgany community in the heart of Maple Grove," the listing says.

The house comes with a "grand 2-story foyer" with a "breathtaking winding staircase," as well as containing three suites, a three-car garage, an "open chef's kitchen," and a hot tub for good measure.
