Joe Montana is considered, by just about everyone, to be one of the best professional athletes ever. Known for his unflappability, and incredible decision-making skills in tense situations, the San Francisco 49ers won four Super Bowls while he served as quarterback. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2000 and was ranked as the #4 NFL Player of All Time by NFL.com.
However, since he left the 49ers, they have not been able to consistently maintain, or regain, their former glory. That is until this season began, and suddenly there are lots of San Francisco fans that are entering the playoff season with renewed faith in their team. With all eyes turning towards the 49ers, it is understandable why there would also be renewed interest in the man that was largely responsible for their former glory. This interest is something Mr. Montana definitely needs, as he has been unsuccessfully trying to sell his Calistoga, California mansion since 2009. Originally priced for purchase at $49 million, he has since reduced the price to $35 million.
Almost 10,000 square feet of space houses three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms. The house sits on 500 acres that also include an olive grove, a bocce court, a basketball court, a spa, a skeet shooting range, stables for horses, a guest house, a pool, a private pond, and housing for the groundskeeper. This particularly property was considered Montana family's holiday home, as they spend most of their time in the house just outside of Los Angeles. As interest in the 49ers increases, and the price of Mr. Montana's second home drops, the man known as "Joe Cool", might finally get a cool $35 million for his palatial vacation residence.
