This Sunday, the Kansas City Chiefs will costar with the San Francisco 49ers at the Super Bowl. But before the annual football performance gets underway, take a peek at what the late owner of the former team has on offer in Napa.

Sitting on a 40-acre ranch in Knights Valley, 11080 Franz Valley Road, a two-story home, comes with three bedrooms, four bathrooms, 6,615 square feet, three wood-burning fireplaces, and a four-car garage. The contemporary interiors feature solid-bronze fixtures, a pitched roof (dig that beamed-and-trussed ceiling), a neutral palette, and many windows and skylights.

There’s a media room, bedrooms with dramatically pitched ceilings, and couple of outdoor decks, one of which features an outdoor kitchen.

But the real treat here, at least for whose fancy themselves a wine steward, is the acres of Cabernet Sauvignon vines in the backyard, right along the banks of Bidwell Creek.

And, yes, of course, there’s a sprawling wine room.

Initially listed in June for $19.95 million, the Napa Valley ranch—owned by Norma Hunt and the late Lamar Hunt, sports pioneer and owner of the Kansas City Chiefs—now asks $15 million.
