Ex-49ers QB Alex Smith parts ways with Los Gatos home

Former @49ers QB Alex Smith completes handoff of Los Gatos home

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith has completed the handoff of his home in Los Gatos, selling the property for $2.65 million.

The home, built in 1987, enjoys mountain and valley views from its one-acre promontory below the Sierra Azul foothills. Sunlit interiors feature hardwood finishes, raised ceilings, rows of windows and stone fireplaces.

The 5,650-square-foot floor plan includes a gourmet kitchen, a media room with a wet bar, four bedrooms and three full baths. The master suite alone is 1,200 square feet and has a fireplace, a generous walk-in closet and an updated bathroom.

Outdoors, a large entertainer’s deck overlooks rolling lawns and a pool with a stone backsplash.

Smith listed the home for sale during the summer of 2013 after being dealt by the 49ers to the Kansas City Chiefs last off-season. He had asked as much as $3.25 million for the property.

A former teammate of Reggie Bush at Helix High School in La Mesa, Calif., Smith, 30, was made the No. 1 overall pick in the 2005 NFL draft by the 49ers and played eight seasons for the team. In his first year with Kansas City, he led the Chiefs to the playoffs with an 11-5 record.

Cherish Atkinson of the Sereno Group was the listing agent. Tim O’Halloran of the O’Halloran Group represented the buyer in the sale.
