49ers’ Darnell Dockett puts his desert home on the block


New San Francisco 49er Darnell Dockett is ready to say goodbye to an old address.

The defensive lineman, who joined the 49ers as a free agent in March after more than a decade with the Arizona Cardinals, has put his home in Chandler, Ariz., on the market for $949,000.

Built in 2006, the desert dwelling has 4,894 square feet of living space, including a chef’s kitchen with a tiered island, a great room, a den/office, six bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms. Travertine flooring and raised interiors with groin vault ceilings are among the distinguishing features of the Tuscan-inspired residence.


Other amenities include a home theater with wet/snack bar and a guest casita. A fireplace, a soaking tub and a double-height closet with a shoe ladder highlight the master suite.

Outdoors, an extended patio covers a built-in grill station and large entertainer’s space. Adjacent is a pool and spa with a waterfall feature. A courtyard sits off of the front of the home.

The NFL veteran purchased the home in 2006 for $1.4 million, records show. David Khalaj of Realty Executives is the listing agent.

Dockett, a three-time Pro Bowler, was released by the Cardinals in February after the two sides failed to come to a new contract agreement. The 33-year-old, who missed all of last season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament, would have carried a $9.8-million salary cap number for Arizona this year.

His two-year deal with San Francisco will pay him $4 million this season, $2 million of which is guaranteed.
