Now Smith is leaving the Washington, DC, metro behind. He’s listed his gorgeous mansion in McLean, VA, for $6.7 million.

Located on “one of McLean’s premier streets,” the modern estate offers five bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, and 6,340 square feet of living space.

It sits on over 2 acres and is surrounded by lovely views, since it backs up to the Potomac Heritage Trail and parkland. Only three years old, the home was designed by W.C. Ralston Architects and built by Brush Arbor Home Construction .

Highlights include a floating glass staircase, a plethora of floor-to-ceiling windows, and designer lighting.

With its open floor plan, the home flows easily from the high-end gourmet kitchen into a spacious living area, as well as a dining area. The lack of walls makes it easy to entertain family and friends and offers the feel of a resort. When it’s time to truly celebrate, a climate-controlled wine cellar is close at hand.

A lavish master suite is located on the main level and features custom cabinetry and built-ins for storage. It also has a seating area, as well as large windows to provide natural light. The master bathroom offers two vanities, a standing shower, and tub.

Four additional bedrooms can be found on the home’s second floor, each with an en suite bathroom.

The upper level has a balcony and a living area that can easily be used as an entertainment area or home office.

Out back, there’s a spectacular, over-sized swimming pool, outdoor shower, and numerous patios for entertaining. The home also includes a four-car garage.

The location is also a big plus, with the district right on the other side of the Potomac and the George Washington Parkway right around the corner. Neighbors include the Washington Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer , who listed his estate last fall.

Smith purchased the home in 2018 for $3.9 million, shortly after being traded from the Kansas City Chiefs to the Washington Football Club .

Smith, 37, was a standout quarterback at the University of Utah and finished fourth in voting for the 2004 Heisman Trophy. He was the first overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers and played eight seasons with the team.

He followed that with a five-season stint in Kansas City. After a traumatic leg injury with Washington in 2018, and complications in his recovery that nearly cost him his limb, he surprised many people and made a comeback in 2020 that is regarded as one of the greatest in NFL history . Mark Mcfadden with Compass has the listing.
