Former NFL linebacker Aldon Smith finally sold his mansion in San Jose at a discount, the Los Angeles Times reported.
The home, which he had listed for as much as $3.5 million in June, wound up selling for $2,562,500 in early December.
The troubled player had a hard time finding a buyer for his Bay Area home. He originally picked up the 10-acre property in 2012 for $1,750,000, when he was wearing the red and gold of the San Francisco 49ers.
Here’s the description:
The main house, built in 2007, fits seven bedrooms and six bathrooms into 6,427 square feet. A two-story foyer with a sweeping staircase opens the dramatic interior. ark colors coat the walls in the living room, formal dining room and office, which holds a fireplace. The main floor also includes an eat-in kitchen with a breakfast bar and a family room with bay windows.
Entered through sliding farmhouse doors, the master suite is anchored by a corner fireplace and opens to a spacious balcony.
A billiards room, loft and movie theater with a wet bar round out the interior. In addition to a swimming pool and spa, the back patio also holds a playground and a rounded lounge with an S-shaped island on the property’s edge.
The close of the home comes soon after Smith accepted a plea deal in November to charges that initially stemmed from an alleged domestic dispute.
The 29-year-old played college ball with Missouri and was drafted by the 49ers in 2011. He played with the team until he was released in 2015, due to his legal issues.
The Mississippi-born player signed with the Oakland Raiders in 2015, but was released in 2018 after troubles with the law resurfaced.
