After inking a two-year contract extension with the chargers this past offseason, Danny Woodhead is settling into Southern California the long haul.

The jack-of-all-trades tailback has paid $780,000 for a home in Rancho Bernardo, a San Diego suburb found south of Escondido.

The Traditional-style residence, built in 1990, features a two-story floor plan with a formal living room, a dining room, an updated kitchen, four bedrooms and three bathrooms in 2,575 square feet of living space.

Features include a generous family room with a fireplace and a master suite complete with a soaking tub, a private balcony and a two-way fireplace. Outdoors, landscaped grounds of slightly more than a quarter-acre include a pavered patio, a fire pit and a spa with water features.

The 29-year-old ranked first among NFL tailbacks with 76 pass receptions in 2013, his first season with the Chargers. He has 34 yards receiving and and 38 yards on the ground through three games this season.

The residence originally came to market in early July with an asking price of $795,000, public records show. The running back and his wife, Stacia, also maintains a 4,094-square-foot residence in Elkhorn, Neb., that they purchased in 2011 for $410,142.

Ron Wilson of Shea Realty was the listing agent. Anne-Marie McCormick of Keller Williams Carmel Valley represented the Woodheads in the sale.
