Kris Dielman, the retired All-Pro offensive lineman who spent his entire career with the San Diego Chargers, has put his home in the Pacific Beach neighborhood of San Diego up for sale.
Listed at $2.35 million, the estate sits on slightly less than a third of an acre in a gated community and has a two-story main residence, a guest casita, an inner courtyard and multiple patios.
The 2009 contemporary was designed by Di Donato Architects and sports hardwood flooring, custom lighting and vaulted ceilings throughout. Included in the 3,760 square feet of living space are a gourmet kitchen with granite countertops, a billiards room and a master suite complete with a steam shower.
The guest casita, found above a three-car garage, provides an additional 760 square feet of living space and features two large balconies with a built-in fire pit and wet bar. Both the main residence and the casita have wired surround sound and security systems.
Designed for year-round enjoyment, an inner courtyard holds an outdoor kitchen with a fire pit, a mounted television and a wet bar. AstroTurf-lined deck spaces add a pigskin touch to the property.
Dielman, 33, was signed by the Chargers as an undrafted free agent in 2003 and spent nine seasons with the team, making four Pro Bowl teams. He suffered a severe concussion during the 2011 season that ultimately forced him to retire.
Records show that the home last sold in July 2007 for $800,000. It was previously listed for as much as $2.45 million in May. Ross Clark of Willis Allen Real Estate is the listing agent.
