Remember the 800-gallon custom aquarium Clay Matthews designed and set up at his California home for a 2018 episode of the TV show “Tanked”?
It could be yours, as long as you’re willing to pony up for the 14,021 square feet of living space that comes with it.
Former Green Bay Packers linebacker and wife Casey Noble’s sprawling 1.65-acre estate in the double-gate community of The Oaks of Calabasas is on the market — and has been for the past year.
Before you think the sweet home with 11 bathrooms, seven bedrooms and room for more than nine vehicles in the garage might be a little out of your league, the asking price keeps dropping.

According to Architectural Digest, the modern French Provincial estate with views of 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.
What does that buy you, other than the 7-foot-long “frozen tundra” themed aquarium, 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, a sports court, a goldfish pond, and a rose garden. There’s also a suite with a private balcony and bathroom with marble and custom-made furnishings, a double-height entry hall, his and hers office, and a chef’s kitchen.

The design expertise of Noble, who hosted HGTV’s “Design on a Dime,” is evident in the 36 photos, but for the kind of insider tour that Wisconsinans and wealthy socialites can also enjoy. enjoy, check out Architectural Digest’s video series, “On the Market.”
Rayni Williams and Shana Tavangarian of The Beverly Hills Estates take viewers inside what they say the couple thought was their “forever home” and show salvaged barn wood from Wisconsin that was flown in for the ceiling beams in the great room, bedroom, and guest quarters (or “cottage,” as Clay and Casey like to call it — another Wisconsin nod).
They point out that the antler chandelier in the pool room, which features poster-sized Sports Illustrated covers of Matthews on the walls, was also from Wisconsin.
You also learn this little nugget on #52: “Clay actually took up gardening, and they planted 50 trees in the orchard.”
According to the Wall Street Journal, Matthews bought the land in 2013 for $2.6 million while dating Noble. They started building the house in 2015 after getting married. This is a process that lasted almost five years.
Architectural Digest, citing a 2021 Wall Street Journal interview with the couple, said they plan to move to Nashville, where Matthews’ brother Casey lives, so their children can grow up together.
Matthews is from California and played a year with the Los Angeles Rams 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,” revisited Matthews’ episode on his “Going Fishing with Brett Raymer” podcast.
Raymer and co-host Wayde King were able to meet the entire Matthews family during the setup, 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 built entirely so the episode could be filmed.
