Well, we know where outspoken U.S. goalkeeper Hope Solo will be going to after winning the gold medal at the 2012 Olympics in London. No, not Disney World, but someplace a lot closer to home.

The veteran of the U.S. National and Olympic teams bought a spectacular spread in the Finn Hill section of Kirkland, WA, where she shelled out $1.2 million in April to own a dream house overlooking Lake Washington.

The former University of Washington player might even be able to grab a view of Husky Stadium, just like fellow Husky Tim Lincecum, who owns a Seattle condo. As Solo says in the YouTube video produced by U.S. Soccer (below), Seattle is where the Richland, WA native feels at home.

And what a home it is. Her 4-bedroom, 3.5-bath house spans 5,330 square feet and includes a gourmet kitchen, full-size sports court and an outdoor entertaining area complete with a pool, hot tub and cabana.
