Retired soccer legend/present enterprise capital investor Joe Montana has made two main actual property strikes in latest weeks. First, he minimize the value of his 500+ acre property within the Napa Valley city of Calistoga that has been on and off the marketplace for over a decade. Second, he purchased a beachfront cottage in Malibu.

Villa Montana

Let’s begin with Villa Montana. That is the identify of Joe’s 503-acre property in Calistoga, California.

Calistoga is about 45 minutes north of Napa. So it is roughly two hours door-to-door from the previous web site of Candlestick Park in San Francisco, the place Joe performed for the 49ers from 1979 to 1992. However Joe by no means would have made that drive. He and his spouse Jennifer purchased the 503 acre property you see beneath within the late Nineties. They then proceeded to spend 5 years and a number of other million {dollars} establishing what turned a sprawling European-style citadel:

Joe and Jennifer – who met when she was employed to be a background mannequin in certainly one of his Schick razor commercials – did a lot of the architectural, panorama and inside designing themselves.

They imported, principally from France, vintage marble flooring, sinks, mantels, a Seventeenth-century church altar, and iron gates that date to the 1500s.

The most important portion of the citadel has just below 10,000 square-feet of dwelling house and solely three bedrooms. In the event you want greater than three bedrooms, don’t fret, there are two 2-bedroom visitor homes. There’s additionally a 3,500-bottle wine cellar when you’re apprehensive about going thirsty.

In the event you get bored, head over to the pool. Or take a dip within the pond. Or head to world-class equestrian facility and journey a horse across the property’s personal trails.

The Montanas initially listed the house on the market in 2009 for $49 million (as in 49ers, get it?). Sadly with with the quantity pun, no patrons might be discovered. They’ve listed the house on-and-off over the past decade+. In 2019 the value was lowered to $29 million. Just a few weeks in the past they lowered the value once more. This time Villa Montana might be yours for…

$24.5 million

And we describe this home as a “citadel,” we’re not kidding. The entrance of the house is surrounded by a moat and bridge. You possibly can see the moat and bridge on the 30 second mark of the video beneath. Which actually is price your time. It is a gorgeous property:

Malibu Beachfront Cottage

As they proceed to attend for a purchaser for his or her Calistoga getaway, Joe and Jennifer have downsized from a 500-acre sprawling citadel to a 1,400 square-foot beachfront dwelling.

They only paid $7.4 million for a Malibu cottage that has zero horse stables, zero swimming pools, zero bocce courts, and 0 moats.

Enjoyable reality #1: I’ve truly been to a celebration at Joe and Jennifer’s new Malibu dwelling. I used to know the man who rented the home for a month each summer time. It is a good little cottage, proper on the seashore, toes from the world-famous Malibu Pier.

Enjoyable reality #2: On the celebration the renter advised me the home had a enjoyable celeb connection. I am considering David Geffen… Dr. Dre… possibly Robert Downey Jr…???

Really, based on the renter, the proprietor of the home was the son of the actress who performed the mother on “Depart it to Beaver.” Often known as Barbara Billingsley. From my reminiscence, the renter advised me Barbara purchased the home within the Nineteen Sixties for actually like $30,000. For the final decade, the home was rented for $20,000+ per thirty days.

And positive sufficient, based on property information Joe and Jennifer Montana are shopping for the home from… Drew Billingsley.

Weird Malibu Incident

I am truly type of stunned Joe and Jennifer are placing roots down in Malibu after the weird incident they skilled nearly precisely one yr in the past.

On a Saturday afternoon final September, Joe and Jennifer have been watching their 9-month-old grandchild at a distinct home in Malibu. The child was sleeping in the lounge when a 39-year-old feminine intruder entered the home, picked up the infant then ran upstairs right into a bed room. Joe and Jennifer confronted the lady asking her handy their grand child again. When the lady refused, Jennifer (who continues to be attractive and seems to be extraordinarily match… try her pictures on Google photographs) attacked the lady, safely re-securing the infant. Severely. This occurred. T

he lady fled. Joe out, flagged down a cop who finally discovered and arrested the lady. It is uncertain this was premeditated. As in, from all accounts after the incident, the lady had no thought who the Montanas have been. She was held in jail for 5 months and is at the moment awaiting trial on costs that might carry and 8-year jail sentence.
