Hot Property: Former 49er Joe Montana lists 500-acre wine country spread for $49 million

November 6, 2009 |  4:02 pm


Football great Joe Montana and his wife, Jennifer, have listed their 500-acre estate, with acreage in Sonoma County’s wine country, for $49 million.

[Note, an earlier version of this post referred to the estate as only being in Sonoma County. It has acreage in Sonoma and Napa counties.]

The Calistoga property includes a 9,700-square-foot Tuscan-inspired main house, an equestrian center, two year-round creeks, a pond, a regulation-sized basketball court, a skeet shooting range, a caretaker’s residence, a guesthouse, a swimming pool with a spa, a gym, a bocce court and a producing olive farm.

The main house has a loggia open to the outdoors, a sitting room in an upstairs tower and a climate-controlled wine cellar and tasting room. There are three bedrooms and 3 1/2 bathrooms.

Designed for indoor-outdoor living, the home has an outdoor courtyard with hand-painted frescoes, antique statues and fountains. An outdoor viewing tower has 360-degree views of Mt. Saint Helena and Knights Valley.
