April top home sales: Russell Wilson’s purchase exceeds No. 2 by $18M The Denver Post

Russell Wilson and Ciara can finally call Colorado home after purchasing a record-smashing $25 million Cherry Hills mansion in April, earning the top spot on BusinessDen’s monthly top home sales list.

A month after the NFL quarterback was traded to the Broncos, Wilson and his singer-songwriter wife Ciara bought a 20,060-square-foot mansion at 10 Cherry Hills Park Drive in Cherry Hills Village. It’s the most ever paid for a residential property in the metro area.
