Last month, Philip Rivers signed a one-year contract with the Indianapolis Colts. The $25 million paycheck is an attractive incentive to move more than halfway across the country, and so onto the open market goes his 2005-built Spanish-style home in San Diego. He’s asking $4.2 million for the property, which is located within the Santaluz gated community.
Rivers has owned the property since 2009, according to public records, and paid $3.3 million for it. He purchased it about halfway through his long stint with the San Diego Chargers.
The stucco house measures 6,844 square feet, and is designed around a courtyard. The interiors are more modern than contemporary, with a warm, open feel, and there are six bedrooms and seven baths. The master suite is elevated, the only upper floor section of what would otherwise be a classic Spanish ranch; this layout flourish allows the suite an unusual degree of privacy and space.
Property amenities include extensive exterior recreation options, with a saltwater pool, a BBQ and dining area, and a small putting green.
