The Oceanside home of the late



Junior Seau

has sold for $1.975 million.

Built in 1997, the three-bedroom, 21/2-bathroom beachfront house contains 2,238 square feet of living space. The lower level features an additional bedroom and bathroom as well as a three car-garage.

The former San Diego Charger linebacker went on to play for the

Miami Dolphins

and the

New England Patriots

before retiring in 2010. He died in May at 43 of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

John Beran of ERA Ranch & Sea Realty handled the transaction.
