NFL great Tony Gonzalez lists his spot in Huntington Beach

Former @Chiefs star Tony Gonzalez puts his spot in Orange County up for sale

Tony Gonzalez, the former Huntington Beach High School standout and decorated NFL tight end, has put his home in Huntington Beach on the market for $6.995 million.

Set at the end of a cul-de-sac, the guard-gated estate sits on about three-quarters of an acre with a Santa Barbara-inspired main residence, a guest house, a basketball half-court, a pool and spa, outdoor dining areas and large expanses of grass.

Entered through a foyer with a curving staircase, the main house features large formal spaces, a theater room and a 1,000-bottle wine cellar. The master suite has a sitting room and a large soaking tub. There are a total of five bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms in 6,000 square feet.

Outdoors, the pool area is flanked by a pair of cabanas, a fire pit and an outdoor kitchen. The guest house has an additional dining room, a wet bar and 1.25 bathrooms within 1,400 square feet.

Elsewhere on the grounds is a koi pond and a fruit and vegetable garden.

A two-sport star at UC Berkeley, Gonzalez played 17 seasons in the NFL for the Kansas City Chiefs and Atlanta Falcons, making 14 Pro Bowl teams. His 15,127 career receiving yards and 111 career touchdown receptions are the most in NFL history for a tight end.

Gonzalez purchased the home in 2007 for $4.995 million, records show.

John Cain and Kathryn White of HOM Sotheby’s International Realty are the co-listing agents.
