Former San Francisco 49ersÂ star linebacker Patrick Willis spent his whole entire eight-season career in the San Francisco Bay Area. Now, the fearsome defensive star is taking another crack at sacking the real estate market.
The All-Pro had listed his mansion in San Jose, CA,Â for $6 million in April 2015. It’sÂ now back on the market at the reduced price of $5.5 million.
The 9,878-square-foot home on aÂ 4.3-acre lot featuresÂ four bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms. TheÂ Mediterranean-style property overlooks theÂ Almaden Valley, an plentiful area along the southern edge of the sprawling city.
Once you enter the home’sÂ double-height foyer with its double staircases, youâ€™re greeted with linebacker-sized amenities. Thereâ€™s a game room with a wet bar, a billiard room, an atrium, a home theater, a home gym, and a wine cellar.
Outside, thereâ€™s a barbecue area, a covered cabana, and an infinity pool with a view of San Jose thatâ€™s wayÂ less tech and a lot more nature.
Citing health concerns, Willis retired from the NFL in 2014, atÂ theÂ prime of his career. He played college ball at Ole Miss, and was drafted 11thÂ overall by the 49ers in 2007. He’s a seven-time Pro Bowler and five-time All Pro. He won the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2007. He was a key member of the 2012 49ers team in that won the NFC Championship and narrowly lost Super Bowl XLVII to the Baltimore Ravens.
