Former top NFL pick David Carr sells his Bakersfield home for $2.1 million


Former NFL No.1 overall draft pick David Carr has completed the handoff of his Bakersfield home, selling the custom estate for $2.1 million.

Sitting on more than half an acre of grounds, the property centers on a single-story main house with six bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms in more than 8,000 square feet of living space. A resort-style swimming pool with a raised spa, beach entry, a swim-in grotto and a waterslide are among the features of the grounds.

Entered through arched front doors, the floor plan features a foyer that opens to an office and a formal dining room. A center-island kitchen, a game room and a master suite with an oversized walk-in closet also lie within the home. A custom theater sports paneled walls and tiered seating.


Outdoors, a covered patio with an outdoor kitchen sits adjacent to the pool. There’s also a one-bedroom guesthouse and a 10-car garage.

Carr bought the house eight years ago for $2.1 million, records show.

Bart Tipton and Tracey Tipton of Miramar International were the listing agents. Roma Roosjen of Coldwell Banker Preferred repped the buyer.

Carr, a former star quarterback at Fresno State, was taken first overall in the 2002 NFL draft by the Houston Texans and played 10 seasons in the league. The 37-year-old last played for the New York Giants during the 2012 season.

He is the older brother of Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr.
