NFL quarterback Carson Palmer prices Del Mar contemporary at $25 million

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer has put a contemporary-style house in Del Mar on the market at $24,995,000.

The 2002 Heisman Trophy winner from USC, now in his 12th NFL season, bought the half-acre property from the city of Del Mar in 2010 for $4.4 million, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune. The 8,000-square-foot house with six bedrooms and eight bathrooms was built last year.

The three-story house, designed for entertaining and casual indoor-outdoor living, includes such custom features an infinity-edge swimming pool, a bocce ball court, a sports court, an open-air living room and an outdoor kitchen/wet bar.


Open-plan interiors done in poured concrete and mahogany finishes include formal living and dining rooms, a center-island kitchen, a media room and an office. Spanning the entire third floor, the master suite has an indoor-outdoor shower, a freestanding soaking tub and private deck.

There are five fireplaces in all.

A lower-level gym has sliding doors that open to a tennis/sports court. Elsewhere, an oversized garage has parking for as many as 10 cars.
