Recently retired NFL tight end Antonio Gates and his wife, reality television personality Sasha Gates, have sold their modern mansion in Encino, California, for $6.5 million.
The couple bought the property two years ago for $6.995 million, the Los Angeles Times previously reported.
The multilevel house, built in 2016, was updated during the Gateses’ ownership and features an open-concept floor plan with 15-foot ceilings and skylights. A two-way fireplace divides the family room and gleaming chef’s kitchen. In the family room, a glass-enclosed wine cellar and tasting room fills the far wall.
A home theater, six bedrooms and eight bathrooms fill out the 8,500-square-foot interior. There’s also a converted office in one of the garages.
Outside, grounds measuring two-thirds of an acre center on an infinity-edge swimming pool with a spa, a fireplace and a built-in barbecue. Elsewhere on the property is a sports court.
Antonio Gates, 39, retired this year after playing his entire 16-year career with the San Diego and Los Angeles Chargers. His 116 touchdown catches is the most by a tight end in league history.
Sasha Gates was a main cast member on “Wags,” a reality TV show that documented the lives of spouses of professional athletes, from 2015-17. Last year, she appeared in the romance-drama film “Kinky.”
