If Kevin Harvick wins the Chase for the Sprint Cup, he and his family will likely go on a celebratory vacation.
One place they won’t go is what is now their former “vacation home.”
But don’t feel bad for the Harvicks, they can afford to take one heck of a vacation with the profit they made after recently selling their getaway place on exclusive Kiaweh Island near Charleston, S.C.
According to the Charleston Post and Courier, Harvick and wife DeLana purchased the oceanfront mansion for $6.4 million in 2010.
This month, they sold if for $8.2 million, a $1.8 million profit. The sale closed on Oct. 2, according to the newspaper.
Yes, $8.2 mill for a “vacation home.” It even has a toney-sounding address: 99 Surfsong Road.
Check out the promotional sales video (and make sure you have your speakers on to hear the backing music — it isn’t any NASCAR-themed country music, that’s for sure):
This wasn’t a surf shack by any stretch. The house was built in 2002 and is 5,345 square feet, with five bedrooms, four full bathrooms, a guest house and even a pool, despite the fact the Atlantic Ocean is right outside the front door.
Maybe the Harvick’s decided to unload it because of the property tax bill they received for this year, according to the Post and Courier: $74,236.60.
