Former Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson has sold his home at a loss as he moves out of Denver, Axios Denver has confirmed.

The latest: The Cherry Hills Village mega-mansion he bought in 2022 for a record-setting $25 million with his celebrity wife, Ciara, sold this week for just $21.5 million.

  • The Arapahoe County Clerk and Recorder's Office received a deed for the sale of the property, which was signed Monday, spokesperson Anders Nelson told us.
  • The sale was first reported by BusinessDen.

Flashback: The sale came roughly a month after the couple quietly began accepting offers for the property, though Wilson denied at the time it was on the market.

Zoom in: The buyer of the property β€” located at 10 Cherry Hills Park Drive β€” was Cherry Park LLC, which is connected to Greenwood Village-based homebuilder Century Communities, per public records obtained by BusinessDen.

  • Cherry Park LLC listed the mansion as its principal office and mailing address, according to records filed with Colorado's secretary of state on March 13.

By the numbers: The 20,000-square-foot home, built in 2018, sits on five acres and has four bedrooms and 12 bathrooms.

  • It boasts a 2,590-square-foot indoor swimming pool, nine-car garage, basketball court and guest apartment.

The big picture: This is the second lackluster deal Wilson has been offered since the Broncos bid him adieu earlier this month.

Yes, but: Don't shed too many tears for Wilson's cashflow.

  • The Broncos agreed to pay him the remainder of his $39 million salary β€” meaning he received $124 million for two years on the team and only 11 wins, 9news reported.

What we're watching: Whether he and Ciara decide to close their clothing store at Denver International Airport to finalize his Denver departure.

  • "As of now, we will not be making any transitions or changes … to our retail location," brand spokesperson Jaclyn Cummings told Axios Denver earlier this month.
