Joe Montana’s house can be yours, for only $35 million

Amid reports that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and his wife have moved into a brand-new $20 million mansion, Brady’s boyhood idol is trying to sell some real estate of his own for slightly more money than that.

Joe Montana’s 9,700-square-foot, 500-acre spread in Northern California’s wine country can be yours for only $35 million, via Yahoo! Sports.

With three bedrooms and 3.5 baths, that’s $11.667 million per bedroom — or $10 million per bathroom.

And $35 million is a bargain.  Montana originally wanted $49 million for the place.

If the 49ers and Patriots win tomorrow, Brady will finally get a postseason crack at the team for which he grew up cheering, 30 years after the 49ers exploded onto the scene via a legendary late-game touchdown throw from Montana to Dwight Clark.

    Time-share anyone?

    Alex Smith will buy it after he signs his 120M contract!

    Three bedrooms? $35 million and only three bedrooms? Seriously? Is there an indoor tennis court, pool, and bowling alley? A full-scale movie theater?

    Okay, okay … obviously the 500 acres is the real selling point here, not the house. It just sounds weird to hear a three-bedroom house is listing for $35 mil.

    I live in Calistoga on the same hill as Montana’s property. It aint worth $35, he’s absolutely trying to get more for the property because of who’s selling it. The house is very nice but seriously even with the land this is $10 million worth of property at the very most, Good Luck Joe.

    Rex Ryan’s home will be for sale this time next year also

  6. rayguyreturns says: Jan 21, 2012 5:58 PM

    Will Joe take a check?

  7. jvibottomline says: Jan 21, 2012 6:01 PM

    It’s been for sale for like 3 years, tough market

  8. duanethomas says: Jan 21, 2012 6:03 PM

    Joe needs cash, also Deion Sanders had his overpriced tricked out mansion for sell. Next year it’ll be for sale for 25% less. Treat him like Leonard Marshall and get a bargain in a year.

    Rob Lowe told me Montana said the plumbing is bad….

  10. Stiller43 says: Jan 21, 2012 6:08 PM

    9,700 sq ft and 3 bed rooms?…

  11. dewalt2990 says: Jan 21, 2012 6:13 PM

    I’ve got 37¢…..

  12. dlmcc1010 says: Jan 21, 2012 6:15 PM

    Seems like alot for what it is. Not that I could afford it either way. I just look at Brady’s house at $20 million and wonder why Montana’s would fetch $35 million

  13. steviemo says: Jan 21, 2012 6:25 PM

    It’s always interesting when rich people get greedy and their egos are so enormous, they think, “I lived in it, so it’s worth $20 million more.”

    Joe is one of my favorite athletes of all-time but between this “$49 million” house and the family’s penchant for yanking their sons out of high school and college football programs almost every year, it feels like this guy’s a spoiled brat who thinks the world should bow down to his every whim. From “greatest of all time” to “crackpot family patriarch.” Strange.

    I’ll buy it out of foreclosure for 350 thousand.

    Here’s the listing. Don’t forget my 3% commission when you close.

  16. sah0620 says: Jan 21, 2012 6:51 PM

    Yeesh, that’s $1500/day in interest per bedroom! That’s twice my mortgage per month on two bedrooms.

  17. makeshersquirt says: Jan 21, 2012 6:53 PM

    Lost all respect for Joe, as a person, a few years back when he refused to be part of a coin-flip or halftime ceremony because he was going to have to SHARE the spotlight with Steve Young….also because he throws sour grapes all over the Rudy story.

  18. nflovercollegefb says: Jan 21, 2012 7:24 PM

    Throw in a Super Bowl ring or no deal!

  19. cowboysfan18 says: Jan 21, 2012 7:35 PM

    I just got off the phone with the bank. It’s mine!!! Only $29167 a month for 100 years…and that’s with no interest.

  20. duanethomas says: Jan 21, 2012 8:23 PM

    @ Make her squirt (And My post get censored all the time and he can use that name…smh)
    Back on point. Agree with the coin toss 100% but Rudy is a joke. His 15 minutes are up and what does he do a classic Pump and Dump scheme of stock for something called Rudy Aide or Water to the tune of 11 million dollars. Don’t believe me: hit the link below.

    @4evrnyt

  22. voyager6 says: Jan 21, 2012 8:46 PM

    Wait for a hurricane and you can buy Montana’s spread for $35 bucks.

  23. nfl4life77 says: Jan 21, 2012 8:49 PM

    Now you have Dan Snyder salivating to spend more money, brilliant

  24. bat42boy says: Jan 21, 2012 8:52 PM

    Who cares. You should be concentrating on college basketball info and drop the Notre Dame junk no one cares about. Don’t you know this is great college BB time and NBC Talks says nothing about it. You guys are very narrow minded. Get a life!!! College football season is over.

  25. bengalsown says: Jan 21, 2012 9:08 PM

    OMG wow homes have more than just bedrooms and bathrooms in them? Whodathunk!!!!

    LOL@ the lack of bedroom posts. Morons.

  26. thefiesty1 says: Jan 21, 2012 9:27 PM

    Poor guys. Their starving to death. Just how much did Montana pay for that property? Pretty nice retirement nest egg.

  27. stevenfbrackett says: Jan 21, 2012 9:43 PM

    Most of that is for the 500 acres of land.

    If it is good for crops or subdividing and housebuilding, it is worth a fortune.

  28. goblue714 says: Jan 21, 2012 10:17 PM

    Govt should buy the land and build subsidized housing for low income people.

  29. chief67 says: Jan 21, 2012 10:37 PM

    I`m only looking to spend 30 to 32 million myself …HA !

  30. papacrick says: Jan 21, 2012 10:43 PM

    That’s insanity. My home is nearly twice the size but a fraction of the land and is appraised at only a fifth of that value. However, I don’t live in Cali either where property value is way overinflated like this man’s ego. He will live there for several years to come.

  31. makeshersquirt says: Jan 21, 2012 10:44 PM

    @duanethomas…

    You are absolutely right, and I forgot about that!
    Good call.

  32. 1phd says: Jan 21, 2012 11:23 PM

    You gotta love Zillow. The appraise his listing at $29 million and then show the same listing as an undisclosed address and value the same house at $15 million. Nice place though.

  33. packerpride03 says: Jan 22, 2012 12:04 AM

    SCAB!!

    Wait for a hurricane and you can buy Montana’s spread for $35 bucks.

    Then they will be waiting millenia because that’s the last time there was a hurricane in Northern California.

  35. gregintheER says: Jan 22, 2012 12:42 AM

    all the derelict 9er fans are having their hearts broken right about now. They held out high hopes that their minimum wage job (plus tips) at Dominoes would one day give them the opportunity to buy overpriced memorabilia/houses of their bandwagon, er, childhood heroes. Sigh… maybe in another 60 yrs.

  36. mancave001 says: Jan 22, 2012 1:00 AM

    Love ya Joe, but $170 for an autograph at the KOP mall this Monday? No.

  37. joetoronto says: Jan 22, 2012 5:34 AM

    I hope you get it, Joe. Screw the haters.

  38. Robert Chandler says: Jan 22, 2012 7:43 AM

    I live in a studio apartment and can barely afford to pay the rent. I am happy for people on the other side of the fence. Hope they appreciate all they have, because many of us are going to be homeless very soon.

  39. norcalirish says: Jan 22, 2012 8:26 AM

    WOW…that place is AMAZING. If only I would have kept in touch with his daughters….lmao

  40. sammievee says: Jan 22, 2012 11:24 AM

    For those hung up on the three bedroom I’m sure Joe would knock the house down and rebuild it with 10 bedrooms and 12,000 square feet if that is what it would take to pry loose $35 million.
