Kansas City Chiefs star Travis Kelce is on the move and it has everything to do with his blossoming relationship with Taylor Swift.
The tight end, 34, closed a deal Tuesday night to purchase a $6 million mansion in Kansas City in search of more privacy amid his high-profile romance with the pop superstar, 33, according to a report from TMZ.
However, it doesn’t seem like such a high price to pay for love as the NFL icon will also enjoy the luxury of a waterfall, a swimming pool and a mini golf course at his new pad.
Kelce felt his former humble abode wasn’t appropriate for someone dating a 12-time Grammy Award winner and decided to take it a step further to feel “self-conscious.” New York Post added.
And his new mansion certainly lives up to expectations, both in grandeur and seclusion.

His new residence, reportedly located in the Kansas City suburb of Leawood, was previously owned by a prominent Kansas City medical malpractice attorney and was listed for $6.9 million in September 2022, according to Kansas City Business Journal.
Built in 1998, the property features six bedrooms, six bathrooms and extends over 17,000 m².
The house is no less decadent as it boasts many luxurious amenities, including a lighted tennis and pickleball court and even its own miniature golf course.
The property’s beautiful garden will provide Swift with the kind of A-List glamor she has earned for herself and grown accustomed to with the property’s three acres of land, also featuring a ‘Beverly Hills-style’ swimming pool.
Sports and leisure come together on the three hectares of land, with the property’s outdoor area providing the perfect environment for outdoor entertainment.
The extensive grounds are complete with bridges, winding paths, a gazebo, patio and seating areas for lounging around the pool.
Kelce will even be able to store his getaway cars (and Swifts) in the adjacent heated six-car garage.
The opulence of the exterior is matched by the mansion’s stunning interior, including majestic marble arches, rare African mahogany hardwood floors and chandeliers adorning the ceilings.

Kelce was able to take his new girlfriend for drinks and dinner from his newly renovated kitchen, which is complete with Caesarstone quartz countertops, custom Grabill cabinetry and state-of-the-art appliances.
The young couple could then retreat together for some cozy quality time in the living room or the home’s own library, which features a wall of bookcases, a fireplace, an aquarium and, conveniently enough, a bar.
The football star will also be able to treat his new flame to her favorite glass of Chardonnay from his own wine cellar when she visits him in his new home.
The extravagance of the beautiful property doesn’t stop there: Kelce will likely entertain from the two-level cinema with Dolby Audio surround sound.
It also caters to his sporting needs with a gym and club room, and he can relax in the full bath with steam shower and sauna after a hard day of training.
Kelce can live it up in his new multi-million dollar home after his Chiefs salary rose from $2.9 million in 2022 to $11.2 million this year, in addition to the money he earns from endorsement deals with companies like Pfizer, Nike, Bud Light and State Farm.
Kelce reportedly closed the deal earlier this week after his new flame spent a few nights at his former residence.
The Anti-Hero hitmaker lovingly supported her NFL boyfriend alongside his mother Donna in Arrowhead last Thursday as the Chiefs downed the Denver Broncos 19-8, and is believed to have stayed at the football star’s former mansion in Kansas City, as photos exclusive to DailyMail. com had her security team parked outside.
The new couple then flew to New York City, where they holed up in Swift’s Tribeca apartment, before hitting the town in a loved-up display.
They were the talk of the Big Apple when they went out to dinner at A-list hotspot Nobu, before making surprise cameos on Saturday Night Live, with Kelce even appearing in a skit poking fun at the NFL mania surrounding their relationship.
They later partied until the early hours of the morning of October 15 at the SNL season after-party Catch NYC – a glamorous steakhouse frequented by celebrities like David Beckham and the Jenners.

It was their first public PDA outing and they reportedly kissed throughout the night before the NFLer gently held Swift’s hand as they went out the back door and caringly helped her into a car.
The NFL star was spotted leaving Swift’s Tribeca apartment on Monday afternoon before reuniting with his brother, Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce, during the Philadelphia Phillies MLB playoff game against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Two-time Super Bowl winner Kelce and the Chiefs will play the Los Angeles Chargers in the NFL on Sunday afternoon at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City. No word yet on whether Swift will be there to cheer him on, but given her Eras tour in Argentina on November 9, she won’t have many chances to see him play in the near future.
After this weekend, the Chiefs are in Denver for a return match with the Broncos and then head to Germany the following weekend to play the Miami Dolphins – five days before Swift’s first appearance in Buenos Aires.
