Former Quarterback Jeff Garcia Lists Rancho Santa Fe Home for $7.75 Million
Jeff Garcia, the former NFL quarterback who played for several teams including the San Francisco 49ers, has reportedly put his home in Rancho Santa Fe, Calif., for sale with an asking price of $7.75 million.
The Los Angeles Times broke news of the listing noting that Brian Williams of The Broker Network is representing the home.
Public records of the home show that Garcia purchased the house in March 2009 for $6.56 million, a month after which he signed a one-year deal with the Oakland Raiders. However, he was let go by September that year and he joined the Philadelphia eagles almost immediately. He was released again after Michael Vick returned after serving suspension.
The residence is a huge 11,000-square-foot, single-family, multi-wing house; comprising of six bedrooms and eight bathrooms.
Interiors of the house feature stone-tiled flooring, high wood-beamed ceilings and large doors and windows. Featuring wrought-iron detailing and intricate woodwork the house boats of Mediterranean architecture.

Garcia retired in 2012 after playing about 21 seasons in the NFL. More recently, he was named the quarterbacks coach for the CFL's Montreal Alouettes.
"Football is in my blood - it's what I know," Garcia said at a press conference in Montreal earlier this month.
"It wasn't easy leaving my wife and four children back home, and we're hoping we made the right decision in doing this for me to really see if this is what I want to do as a living," he added.
