    When San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith was replaced midseason by breakout star Colin Kaepernick, it was clear that the former first-stringer would soon be riding the bench or packing his bags and heading elsewhere. Alas, after Kaepernick led the team to the Super Bowl, San Francisco traded Smith to the Kansas City Chiefs in exchange for two draft picks.

    Now a Kansas City resident, Smith is settling into his new life in the Midwest and selling his San Francisco-area home for $3.25 million. Located in Los Gatos, a ritzy suburb 30 minutes south of the 49ers’ stadium, Smith’s now-vacant home has 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms spread out over 5,644 square feet. In the backyard, you’ll find a pool, sprawling lawns and stellar Bay Area views.

    Cherish Atkinson Zubillaga of Sereno Properties is Smith’s agent on the listing.

      NFL Hall of Famer Joe Montana is giving all  San Francisco 49er fans a special playoff treat this year: an extra huge price cut off his listed Northern California retreat, Villa Montana. According to Yahoo! Sports, Montana has taken a grand total of $14M off, that’s a 31% discount, and relisted the Calistoga getaway home for $35 million.

      Originally listed back in 2009 for $49 million, this home is not limited to just 49er fans. Anyone who enjoys basking in California’s wine country sun, takes pleasure in playing bocce ball in the comfort of their home, and/or fancies riding beautiful horses can also live or vacation in this three bedroom, 3/5 bathroom estate.

      Nearly 10,000 square feet and 500 acres of beautiful Calistoga land makes this home to die for. Complete with an olive farm, full bocce ball and basketball court, an equestrian stable, an exquisite pool and spa, and breathtaking mountain views, you won’t have a problem turning the TV off in this home. (Unless, of course it’s the NFL champion playoff games.)

      The home also includes a private pond, shooting range and guest house.
