L.A. Rams 2022 Super Bowl champion and six-time Pro Bowl corner Jalen Ramsey is selling his Los Angeles home following his trade to Miami Dolphins.
This was a blockbuster trade as Ramsey is one of the best-rated cornerbacks in the NFL. Following the move, he has put his Hidden Hills house on the market for a whopping $13.995M.
After spending three and a half seasons with the Rams and helping lead the organization to a Super Bowl championship in 2021, he was traded by the Rams to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for a 2023 third-round pick and tight end Hunter Long.
His move to Miami means he is selling his Hidden Hills property which he purchased in 2020 for $9.5 million from Howie Mandel, The Wall Street Journal reported. The America’s Got Talent host bought it as an investment property and it hadn’t been lived in when Ramsey bought it.
Lee Mintz at Compass — the same agent who sold Ramsey the property back in 2020 — holds the listing.
Originally from Tennessee, the decorated cornerback said he started looking for an L.A. home following his trade to the Rams from the Jacksonville Jaguars.
He settled on the star-studded area of Hidden Hills where stars like Kim Kardashian and Madonna have resided in part because of its proximity to the Rams’ training facility in Thousand Oaks.
“If I felt like I was gonna be continuing to come to California often, then I would probably just hang on to it, honestly,” he told the WSJ, “because I love the home.”
Back in 2020, Ramsey signed a five-year, $105 million extension with the Rams that made him the highest-paid defensive back in NFL history at the time. But now the Rams are looking to shed salaries and the deal with Ramsey lacked guaranteed money on the back end which the Dolphins were willing and able to add.
Now the NFL star who made it into the Forbes’ 2023 30 Under 30: Sports has a new contract where he’s getting a combined $35.5M in full guarantees through to 2026 from the Dolphins.
Inside Jalen Ramsey’s elegant mansion in L.A., now on the market for $13,995,000
Located near Calabasas in the guard-gated community of Hidden Hills, the modern farmhouse-style house is a masterpiece of elegance.
The remarkable home, which spans 10,100 square feet across three levels, is nestled on a serene 1.4-acre lot and offers seven bedrooms and eight and a half bathrooms.
Rooms flow easily into one another on the main floor and the open layout is filled with natural light that flows seamlessly from the custom windows.

“I have always had a dream house in mind with a whole list of must-haves for me and my family this property checked almost all of the boxes,” Jalen Ramsey said of the Hidden Hills property he’s called home in recent years.
“I made a few enhancements to perfect it and now it is tough coming to terms with selling it because I do love it. You can relax, play basketball, be healthy, workout – you can do it all here,” Ramsey added in a quote provided to Fancy Pants Homes by his brokerage.
And it’s easy to see why Jalen Ramsey is having a hard time parting ways with his Los Angeles abode.
The home exudes luxury from the abundance of European white oak floors, classic Calacatta Borghini marble, and mystery white kitchen countertops. The Control4 smart home system controls the lighting, security, and audio and visual systems.
According to Dirt, the main house offers six bedrooms which are all en-suite, with the primary going the extra mile with a private sitting room, a double-sided fireplace, and two fitted walk-in closets. The spa bath is sheathed in marble, and a balcony offers a view of the perfectly pruned gardens.
The main house has seven and a half bathrooms and impeccable finishes. The state-of-the-art amenities in the basement include a theater and wine room making it a five-star leisure suite.
There’s also a glassed-in office and an indoor gym, and a large lounge with a professional wet bar and a climate-controlled wine room, and the lounge opens to a sunken terrace with a freestanding sauna box.
After he bought the house, Ramsey said he built the guesthouse, expanded the driveway, and redid the landscaping — which is probably the real star of the home. Much of the garden was on a hillside, so he graded it and added lounging areas as well as play areas for his young daughters.
The secluded home is fit for resort-style living with the meticulously landscaped mature trees, carefully sculpted bushes and the perfectly pruned plantings look down on the stately pool and out over the surrounding treetops.

The expansive grass areas, basketball court, and built-in barbecue area are all designed for outdoor entertainment and relaxation.
The All-Pro cornerback said it was a great place to live in during the pandemic because everything he needed was at his house. The luxurious residence embodies privacy, opulence, and impeccable design.
“We walked into the house and he said this is the one. Since then he has completely changed the property, especially the outside. You truly have to experience it,” says listing agent Lee Mintz.
“The landscaping makes the whole house. It’s such a fun house with a resort feel, it makes you never want to leave,” he added. And clearly, Ramsey wouldn’t leave either, if it were up to him. But hopefully, some lucky future owners will appreciate this stellar abode just as much as Jalen did.
