Antonio Gates, the decorated tight end for the L.A. Chargers, has sold his home home in the Poway area of San Diego County for slightly more than $1.9 million.

He bought the property more than a decade ago for $2.55 million, public records show.

The single-story home, built in 2001, sits behind metal gates and has a long driveway that ends at a circular motor court.

Beyond the arched front doors, the 6,841 square feet of living space features a formal entry that opens on one side to an office/den and, on the other, a formal dining room. A great room topped with beamed ceilings, an oversized kitchen, five bedrooms and seven bathrooms are among the other living areas.


A separate guest wing contains a secondary kitchen, two offices and a billiards room.

Outdoors, the one-acre lot includes a lighted basketball court and a saltwater swimming pool with waterfall features. There’s also an outdoor kitchen, a fire pit and an open-air shower.

Jessica Foote of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties was the listing agent. Jeannine LaChance of Windermere Homes & Estates represented the buyer. The exact sale price was $1,908,450, according to the MLS.

Gates, eight times a Pro Bowler, appeared in 14 games for the Chargers this year, catching 53 passes for 548 yards and seven touchdowns. The 36-year-old is the Chargers’ all-time record-holder for receiving yards (11,192) and touchdown catches (111), and is tied with Tony Gonzalez for the most scores by a tight end in NFL history.
