Civil rights champion and 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick sold his San Jose home this week. Landing on the market last December for $2,895,000, the property at 4903 Eastbourne Court pulled in a cool $3,075,000, well over asking.
Coming in at four beds, five and five half baths, and 4,569 square feet, the 1999 house benefited from a recent $300,000 renovation. Among the aesthetic additions, an eyebrow-raising bathroom with Game of Thrones doors and a chandelier.

Kapernick made headlines last year with a series of silent protests during the national anthem before NFL games have, protests that inspired other athletes to follow his lead.
Sadly, the inspiring QB won’t call the Bay Area home for much longer. According to SocketSite, “Kaepernick, who recently purchased a $3.2 million, 1,733-square-foot condo at One York Street in New York, is expected to opt-out of his contract with the 49ers and become a free agent next month.”
