Trent Dilfer, a 13-year NLF quarterback who finished his football career with the 49ers, set his sights on yet another huge score when he listed his Saratoga mansion for nearly $7 million right before Valentine’s Day.
An imitation of a Spanish Colonial house, 15288 Quito Road was built in 2006, making it one of the area’s more contemporary offerings.
Dilfer bought it right around the time he was traded to the 49ers; though a Bay Area native (he graduated from Aptos High School, where the football field is now named for his late son), he spent most of his career playing in Tampa Bay and Seattle.
The noted footballer celebrated that happy homecoming with this five-bed, five-and-a-half bath home on an acre and a half, complete with its own vineyard.
Say what you want about Dilfer’s football career—he apparently threw more interceptions than touchdowns over 13 years—but it’s hard to criticize his sense of fun. Be sure to note the Skee-Ball machine in the den.
The status of the listing changed to pending today, suggesting that the quarterback turned ESPN commentator managed a big win after just about a week on the market.
