Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith gets his asking price for Bay Area home
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith has notched a win away from the field, selling his home in Monte Sereno, Calif., for the asking price of $3.999 million.
Smith, who spent his first seven seasons in the NFL with the San Francisco 49ers, bought the house in 2011 for $3,627,500, records show.
Set on a flat lot of nearly half an acre, the French villa-inspired house was completed in 2010 and features such details as 100-year-old reclaimed wood beams, antique limestone floors and elaborate globe chandeliers.
Within the 4,650 square feet of living space are formal living and dining rooms, a den/office, four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. A center-island kitchen has a breakfast area, while a wine refrigerator sits off a nearby hallway.
In the master suite, a two-way fireplace is shared by the bedroom and bathroom. There are four fireplaces in all.
Exterior details include a flagstone patio with an outdoor kitchen, a fire ring and a professional bocce ball court. A small courtyard marks the entrance to the home.
Cherish Atkinson of Sereno Group was the listing agent. Brad K. Le of Keller Williams Realty, Silicon Valley, represented the buyer.
Smith, the first overall pick in the 2005 draft, is in his third year with the Chiefs and his 10th NFL season overall. He is set to earn $11.9 million this year as part of a four-year, $68-million extension he signed in 2014.
