Jim Harbaugh Finally Sells His Atherton Mansion for $11.8M

Former San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh finally sold his Atherton, CA, estate, the Los Angeles Times reports. The gated property in the tony town closed for $11.78 million.

The home was listed in August for $12,988,000 . Even with the discounted sale price, Harbaugh nearly doubled the $6.3 million he paid for the place in 2012.

The San Francisco Bay Area housing market continues to stay strong, and Atherton stands out as having one of the most expensive ZIP codes . Its current median list price is an astonishing $10,800,000.

Harbaugh, 58, held on to the home for years—even after moving to Ann Arbor, MI, in 2015 as the head coach at the University of Michigan.

We can understand his reluctance to let this place go.

Set on 1.3 acres, the 8,500-square-foot house has five bedrooms and eight bathrooms. It was built in 2007 and features hardwood flooring, millwork, and beamed ceilings. The layout includes a living room with a fireplace, a formal dining room, an eat-in kitchen, an office, and a family room. The primary suite comes with a luxe bath.

There’s also a guesthouse with a living room, kitchen, bedroom suite, and attached gym.

Outside, the grounds boast a pool, spa, kitchen, fire pit, and lush lawn. Harbaugh coached the 49ers from 2011 to 2014. He previously held coaching jobs at Stanford and the University of San Diego.

He still owns a San Diego–area home. The beachside property in Coronado was available as a luxury rental for the past five years.

Harbaugh graduated from Palo Alto High School, starred as a quarterback in college at Michigan, and played quarterback in the NFL for 14 years.
