Russell Carrington Wilson is a professional quarterback for the National Football League’s Seattle Seahawks. As one of the highest-paid players in the NFL (more on that is just a second), you better believe we’re drooling over this Russel Wilson house situation…not to mention is also Ciara house.
Wilson’s impressive display on the field during his college ball years playing for the University of Wisconsin led to him to become the 12th pick in the 3rd round of the 2012 NFL draft. In his debut season alone, Wilson tied Peyton Manning’s record for the most passing touchdowns by a rookie (at 26) and was even named the Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Year. He holds the record for the most victories by a professional quarterback through 7 seasons (75 wins total) and is only 1 of two quarterbacks in the National Football League’s history with a professional passer rating of over 100. In April of 2019, Wilson signed a 4-year contract extension with the Seattle Seahawks that is worth a whopping $140 million (not including the $68 million signing bonus), which now makes him one of the highest-paid players in the NFL.
Where Does Russell Wilson Live?
Russell Wilson and wife Ciara’s house is located in Seattle, Washington. As you’d expect from a guy that currently makes one of the fattest paychecks in the NFL, Russell Wilson’s house is an absolute paradise! The guy has impeccable taste in real estate, that’s for sure. Wanna learn more about this famous quarterback’s swanky mansion? Well sit back, relax, and keep reading because we here at Velvet Ropes are about to break it down for you!
Russell Wilson House Seattle
Purchased for $6.7 million in 2015, Wilson’s Seattle mansion sits on 6.67 acres with 84 feet of gorgeous high-bank waterfront. The 10,210 square foot residence boasts 7 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms as well as a custom kitchen complete with elegant chandeliers, a spacious center island, a walk-in pantry, and stunning wood cabinetry. The home also has a wine cellar to rival all other wine cellars – it houses up to 2,000 bottles (Shhh, don’t tell Johnny Depp!)
Other notable design features include a beautiful spiral wood staircase with intricately crafted wrought iron railing that takes you up to the second floor, several skylights that allow for natural lighting throughout, 5 fireplaces, and panoramic views of the lake from literally every room of the house – even the en suite master bathroom. Amenities include a media room (which is closed off from the rest of the home by massive Tibetan doors), a gym, and a private dock outside.
Since purchasing the property, there have been at least 14 permits and/or reports to county records of improvements to the home. As you’ll see in the listing photos below, the home was already impeccable, but it seems Russell and Ciara have completely reinvented the home.
While there aren’t many details available for Ciara’s home prior to moving in with hubby and Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, what we can say is that sometime in 2015 the singer sold her luxurious condo in Atlanta, Georgia for $520k, which was a massive financial loss to Ciara – a $160k loss to be exact. She had originally purchased the unit for $680k back in 2006. Can you say “Ouch!”
Though it sucks the girl lost that much on her lavished Georgia digs, she seems to be doing just fine in recent years – you know, marrying a multi-million dollar professional football player, releasing several albums, living in a gorgeous abode in Seattle – yeah, she’s doing okay for herself!
Russell Wilson House Gift to Mom
Some guys buy their mom flowers or take them out to dinner for Mother’s Day, but Wilson decided to give his mama the ultimate Mother’s Day surprise in 2019 when he bought her a new house! The big reveal was captured on video as Russell and wife Ciara brought mother Tammy Wilson to the property and handed her the keys. The joy and disbelief from Wilson’s mom is nothing short of heartwarming and adorable as Tammy stands at the steps of her new home in shock repeatedly asking “are you serious?!”
Though we wish we could go into details about what the home features, there’s really no information about it currently available – we don’t even know where it’s located yet! Though given that the NFL player probably wants to keep his mom close by (and the fact that the property shown in the video seems to share similarities with Russell’s neighborhood) it’s more than likely that his mom is living somewhere not far from where her son lives.
Below the video post of his big Mother’s Day surprise, Wilson writes “I love you mamma” and #happymothersday #godisgood (show of hands for those whose heart melted on this one!)
Russell Wilson Net Worth

Ciara and Russell Wilson
Russell Wilson was apparently already smitten with singer and future wife-to-be, Ciara before the pair had even met. In an interview with The Rock Church of San Diego, Wilson spoke candidly about his early thoughts of the lovely lady in his life – “I told somebody that’s the girl I want to be with before we even met,” and “I’m probably going to end up with Ciara.” Now isn’t that just the sort of sickening-sweet romance that melts your heart? (and causes diabetes?). Seriously though, it’s so adorable that the guy was so enamored by this woman that he prophesied his relationship with her.
Fortunately for Russell, (and us die-hard romantics) his prophesy of a romance with the pop singer would eventually come to fruition. In 2015, a year after breaking off an engagement with rapper, Future, following rumors of infidelity, Ciara and Wilson made their relationship public when they attended a White House State Dinner together to honor prime minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe, and wife, Akie Abe. Just a year after going public, in March of 2016, Russell Wilson proposed to his lady love, during their vacation in Seychelles, with a 16-carat ring. They went on to tie the knot in July of 2016 in Peckforton Castle located in Cheshire, England amongst 100 of their nearest and dearest. Ciara’s bridesmaids included Kelly Rowland, La La Anthony, and pro tennis player Serena Williams.
If you think the marriage was a bit fast, consider that the couple, both deeply religious, reportedly swore a vow of celibacy until marriage while they were dating (I mean, you try waiting that long for sexy time without either breaking your vows or getting hitched!)
Russell Wilson Children
Russell Wilson and wife Ciara have one daughter together, 2-year-old Sienna Princess Wilson, born on April 28, 2017.
In addition to his biological daughter, however, Russell is also the stepfather of Ciara’s 5-year-old son, Future Zahir Wilburn, whom she had with rapper and ex-fiancé Future.
