Former USC quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Matt Leinart has completed the handoff of his Manhattan Beach digs, selling the three-story home for $2.077 million.
The 2,135-square-foot house, with an open-area floor plan and a pair of wraparound decks, returned to the market in April for about $2.4 million, up from $2.059 million last year. Records show that Leinart purchased the home in 2012 for $1.45 million.
Built in 1971, the home features an updated kitchen with a breakfast bar, a family room, a living room, three bedrooms and three bathrooms. There are two fireplaces and ocean-view decks extending off of the second and third floors.
Off of the main floor, a small yard sits beneath an awning. Spiral staircases, one inside and one out, run between each level of the three-story home.
Nicholas Schneider of Palm Realty Boutique was the listing agent. Mark Leddy, also with Palm Realty Boutique, represented the buyer in the sale.
Leinart, a former first-round NFL draft pick, retired last year after six seasons with the Arizona Cardinals, Houston Texans and Oakland Raiders. The 32-year-old currently serves as a studio analyst for the Pac-12 Networks.
