The 49ers traded Alex Smith to the Kansas City Chiefs two years ago, but the quarterback is making another play in the Bay Area by putting his Monte Serano home on the market for just under $4 million. This is not Smith's first time in the Bay Area real estate game, back in 2013 he sold a Los Gatos home for $2,650,000 after listing it for $3,250,000.
His latest Santa Clara County offering is a four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath home that measures 4,650 square feet. The place is inspired by a French Villa and architects attempted to shore up the Old-World illusion by including century-old oak beams and an imported antique fireplace mantel and limestone floors. But since the home was built in 2010, those old floor tiles are heated by radiant heat. Other amenities include a pro bocce ball court, a lot of Calcutta marble, and a 12-case wine refrigerator.
The furniture is a bit sparse and, at first glance, appears to be staging props. However, a child's room displays large metal letters spelling "Hudson," which really is the name of one of his two children, so maybe Smith and his wife (former Oakland Raiders cheerleader Elizabeth Barry) liked to keep things simple in this ornate home.
