Tax difficulties have turned Redskins safety DeAngelo Hall's former Cape Charles, VA, vacation home into a seaside resort. Adrift on a sea of troubles, that is.

After delinquent tax payments left Hall owing more than $24,000 on the four-bedroom home located near the Chesapeake Bay, the bank began the process of property seizure in 2011.

It failed to sell for $1.5 million five years ago, but the bank is trying again, with a nearly $1 million price cut. Now listed for a mere $525,000, this foreclosed home is a serious bargain for a handy buyer.

Hall has spent seven seasons with the Washington Redskins. After several injuries in 2014, he helped the team win the NFC East in 2015.

His former four-bedroom property needs a ton of TLC, but there's serious potential for a savvy (and hardy) owner. Cleaned up, its brick colonial exterior promises to wow your guests, with plenty of curb appeal. If their jaw doesn't drop there, it surely will once they step into the enormous foyer, flanked by twin staircases.

Just make sure you're prepared to do some hard work, especially outside. But after you take a broom to the currently covered pool, you'll have the perfect centerpiece for an entertainer's dream backyard.
