Jerry Rice's Atherton Home For Sale
Rice's home has been on and off the real estate market a few times since 2009. Located in Atherton, California, this incredible luxury home was originally listed at closer to $22 million, and then again at $15 million, so the current pricing is actually a steal.
Notable features include:
- 13,908 square foot home
- 1.2 acres of pristine landscaped grounds
- Large pool area with spa and cabana
- Covered outdoor living space with a fireplace and built-in BBQ pit
- Six bedroom suites
- Seven full baths and three half-baths
- Home theater room
- Full bar and wine room
- Game room
- State-of-the-art workout facility (more on that later!)
- Detached guest house
One of the most striking of the above features is Rice's home gym. Famous for his unfailing dedication to a grueling workout regimen throughout his professional career, Rice's dedication to physical fitness hasn't stopped. The gym is worth approximately half a million dollars. Not only does it include the latest and greatest workout machinery - often multiple versions of the same genre of equipment - Rice's Gym also includes a sauna, a steam-room, and a cold plunge. The football star has commented that outside of working out, it has provided a private space for him to unwind or work off excess energy on a sleepless night, without having to expose himself to the public.
Amazing Outdoor Living Space
For those who aren't as dedicated to working out as Mr. Rice, or who are a bit shy of the multi-million dollar price tag, you may want to see if you can make a deal on his backyard. It is stunning. The large covered eating, lounging, and cooking area is draped with exquisite wisteria vines and surrounded by a pool, hot-tub, and lush lawns. It adds additional living space which is in direct competition with the luxurious interior space.
While we can't all live in the lap of ultra-luxury, it's fun to fantasize every once in a while. In the meantime, the improving real estate market means you are only days away from finding a dream home that's meant for you, which could be the accessible luxury that is Pacific Place!
