Joe Montana offers a ‘discount’ on vacation home — now only $35 million!

Shutdown Corner

Homeowners across America have drastically sliced the prices of their homes in an attempt to sell in this sluggish economy, and that now includes NFL Hall of Famer Joe Montana.

The difference between Montana and the rest of American homeowners looking to sell (aside from his four Super Bowl rings)? After reducing the price, his home outside San Francisco will still cost you $35 million after Montana originally tried to sell it for $49 million (get it?) in 2009.

Located in Calistoga, Calif., the home includes three bedrooms, 3 1/2 bathrooms, nearly 10,000-square feet, 500 acres of land, a pool, a bocce court, an olive farm, a skeet-shooting range, a full-sized basketball court and an equestrian stable.

Not bad considering this was Montana's vacation home while he wasn't in Southern California, where he and his wife Jennifer reside just outside Los Angeles.

Montana, of course, is best known as one of the greatest NFL quarterbacks of all time -- he was an eight-time Pro Bowler with the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs. He now owns his own wine label, Montagia, and has four children — two are currently playing college football.

Who knows -- if current 49ers quarterback Alex Smith continues playing the way he has and he leads the Niners to their first Super Bowl in nearly two decades, maybe "Joe Cool" will throw in a extra discount to the new guy.
