Remember the 800-gallon custom aquarium that Clay Matthews designed and installed in his California home in 2018 for an episode of TV’s “Tanked”?
It can be yours, as long as you’re willing to pay for the 14,021 square feet of living space that comes with it.
The sprawling estate, former Green Bay Packers linebacker and his wife, Casey Noble, built on 1.65 acres in the double gated community in The Oaks of Calabasas, is on the market — and has been since last year.
Before you think twice, the home sweet home with 11 bathrooms, seven bedrooms and space for over nine vehicles in the garage may be a little out of your league, the asking price continues to fall.

According to Architectural Digest, the modern French provincial estate overlooking the Santa Monica Mountains was first listed for just under $30 million in July 2021, a year after construction was completed. It returned to the market in March for $27.9 million. It is currently listed by The Beverly Hills Estates for $24.9 million.
Besides the 6-foot “frozen tundra” themed aquarium, what’s in it for you, including coral reef goal posts and an underwater version of a Cheesehead?
The listing on Realtor.com lists amenities such as an oversized pool/spa, a 15-seat theater and “underground level” wine cellar, sports field, goldfish pond, and rose garden. There is also a suite with a private balcony and bathroom with marble and custom sinks, a double-height foyer, his and hers office and a chef’s kitchen.

The design expertise of Noble, who hosted HGTV’s “Design on a Dime,” is evident throughout the 36 photos, but for the kind of insider’s tour that Wisconsinites and wealthy socialites alike can appreciate, check out Architectural Digest’s video series, “On the Market.” “
Rayni Williams and Shana Tavangarian of The Beverly Hills Estates take viewers to what they believe would be their “forever home” and showcase the reclaimed Wisconsin barn wood that was flown in for ceiling beams in the great room, bedroom suite and guest apartment (or ‘ cottage,” as Clay and Casey like to call it – another nod to Wisconsin).
They point out that the antler chandelier in the billiard room, with poster-sized Sports Illustrated Matthews covers on the walls, was also from Wisconsin.
You’ll also learn this little nugget about No. 52: “Clay really started gardening and they planted 50 trees in the orchard.”
According to The Wall Street Journal, Matthews bought the land for $2.6 million in 2013 when he was dating Noble. They started building the house in 2015 after they got married. It is a process that has taken almost five years.
Architectural Digest, citing a 2021 Wall Street Journal interview with the couple, said they planned to move to Nashville, where Matthews’ brother Casey lives, so their children can grow up together.
Originally from California, Matthews played with the Los Angeles Rams for a year after his 10-season career with the Packers ended in 2019.
In April, Brett Raymer, one of the hosts of the Animal Planet reality show “Tanked,” visited the Matthews episode on his “Going Fishing with Brett Raymer” podcast.
Raymer and co-host Wayde King met the entire Matthews family during the install, including Clay’s father, Clay Matthews Jr., who is also a former NFL linebacker. The house was under construction at the time, but the office was completely built so the episode could be filmed.
