Free agent linebacker NaVorro Bowman, who made three Pro Bowl teams as a member of the San Francisco 49ers, has sold his Bay Area home of five years for $3.715 million, records show.

The French Neoclassical-style home, built in 1951, is found on a tree-lined street in the Rose Garden neighborhood of San Jose. The area is named for the San Jose Municipal Rose Garden, a five-plus-acre park that sits at the heart of the historic subdivision.

Extensively updated, the two-story house gives way to a two-story foyer with a sweeping staircase that opens to the living room. A chef’s kitchen, a formal dining room, a rec room with a wet bar and an office fill out the main floor.


The roughly 6,000-square-foot floor plan also holds five bedrooms and five bathrooms. In the master suite, a sitting room connects to a terrace balcony overlooking the backyard.

The house sits on about half an acre that includes a fenced sports court, a swimming pool and spa and a pool house. There’s also a detached garage.

Bowman, 30, bought the home five years ago for $3.1 million, records show.

In seven NFL seasons, the linebacker has accumulated 798 tackles while earning First-Team All-Pro nods. He most recently played with the Oakland Raiders in 2017.
