Joe Montana, the former quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, has relisted his 500-acre California estate for $US28.9 million – 41% less than its original asking price, The Wall Street Journal’s Katherine Clark reported.

The property – which includes everything from an equestrian facility to a bocce ball court – was originally listed for $US49 million in 2009. That price was, according to Clark, a tribute to Montana’s football career.

Olive oil is produced from olive trees on the estate and stored in a cellar in the home. The home also includes a wine cellar that can hold up to 3,500 bottles.

Montana and his wife built the home in the early 2000s. According to Clark, the home features items the couple handpicked from Italy and France including an antique well, old marble floors, and 16th-century iron gates.

To put the price and size of Montana’s estate into context, a 50,500-acre California ranch – believed to be the biggest piece of land currently for sale in the state – is currently on the market for $US72 million.
