A longtime NFL quarterback with roots in the San Francisco Bay Area is taking a real estate shot downfield and hoping for a big score.
Current ESPN NFL analyst Trent Dilfer is selling his Spanish-style mansion in Saratoga, CA, for nearly $7 million. The Super Bowl champ’s five-bedroom, six-bath home sits on an acre and a half of land in the heart of one of the Bay Area’s most scenic areas. The 5,500-square-foot home is right on the border of the exclusive enclave of Monte Sereno and only five minutes from downtown Los Gatos.
According to the listing, the mansion was built just 10 years ago and was briefly on the market in 2010 for $5.1 million.
The ex-QB is married and has three daughters, so it’s no surprise the two-level home is designed for comfortable, everyday living. The layout features grand formal rooms, main- and upper-level family rooms, an executive office, and two project rooms that can be transformed into office, hobby, or study spaces.
There are four bedroom suites, and the kitchen features granite counter tops, a wine refrigerator, and a pantry.
The exterior resembles a resort and features a vineyard, gazebo, pool and spa, outdoor kitchen, pizza oven, fireplace, and bocce court.
Dilfer, a Bay Area native, was at one point a quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers. His NFL career spanned 13 seasons in a variety of locales. His most notable season was in 2000, when he helped defeat the New York Giants and led the Baltimore Ravens to their first Super Bowl victory. He spent the early part of his career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
After Baltimore, Dilfer bounced around the league and played for Seattle, Cleveland, and San Francisco before joining the ESPN broadcast team in 2008. In 2016, Dilfer signed an undisclosed extension with the network to stay on their broadcasting team and expand his role. Over the course of his career, Dilfer tossed 113 touchdowns and 129 interceptions.
