Dennis Allen didn’t record too many victories during his tenure with the Oakland Raiders, but the former head coach is exiting the Bay Area with a solid win in the real estate column. Allen sold his home in Alamo on Wednesday for $3.625 million -- $126,000 above the asking price.

The Tudor-inspired Traditional, built in 2003, sits on slightly more than an acre with wide views of the surrounding foothills. Entered through a double-height foyer, the 5,336 square feet of living space is highlighted by wide-plank hardwood flooring, marble finishes and custom molding.

Among living spaces is a living room with a fireplace, a formal dining room, five bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms. A two-way fireplace sits between a kitchen with a large center island and a family room with custom built-ins.

Outdoors, the manicured grounds contain a pool and spa, large expanses of grass and a covered pavilion with a kitchen and fireplace. Elsewhere is a bocce ball court and a small vineyard set on a sloping edge of the property.

Allen, 42, compiled an 8-28 record as head coach of the Raiders and was relieved of his position following an 0-4 start to the 2014 season. In January, he rejoined the New Orleans Saints, where he had coached from 2006 through 2010, as a senior defensive assistant.

Records show that Allen paid $2.995 million for the home in June 2012.

Khrista Jarvis of J. Rockcliff Realtors was the listing agent. Jennifer Hatter of RE/MAX Accord represented the buyer.
