49ers legend Joe Montana relisting 500-acre Calistoga ranch for $28.9M

Earlier this month, 49ers Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana put his 87-acre Northern California ranch on the market for $3.1 million.

And now, he's listing his 500-acre estate right next door for $28.9 million. The property originally floated for $49 million a decade ago, but now is on the market for less.

The France and Italy-inspired home began to take shape in the late '90s and finished in 2003.

You can access the property by a bridge over a moat, naturally. It also holds three bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, large tapestries, antique marble floors and a collection of European imports, according to The Los Angeles Times.

49ers legend Joe Montana selling Calistoga ranch property for $3.1M

Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana has put his 87-acre Northern California ranch on the market for $3.1 million, according to the L.A. Times.

The Tuscan-style ranch property located in Calistoga has been owned by the 49ers legend for two decades. He originally purchased it for $1.8 million in 1998.

You can reach the hidden gem with a private, gated bridge that is located next to a 500-acre ranch, which Montana also owns.

An 11-stall breezeway barn with a tack room, a lake, fenced pastures and a round riding pen are all part of the area. 

Inside the property is a ranch office that the Times reports could be used as a residence. It possesses vaulted ceilings and Saltillo tile floors across a split-level floor plan.

Check out the link below for photos of the property.

Why David Carr doesn't rank Joe Montana among top 10 QBs of Super Bowl era

For most people, the debate over the greatest quarterback of all time comes down to two names: Tom Brady and Joe Montana.

David Carr, it appears, is not most people.

The 2002 No. 1 overall draft pick, who now is an analyst for NFL Network, surely made some jaws drop Friday when he said Montana was not (!) a top-10 quarterback in the Super Bowl era.

Yes, you read that correctly. 

So, why does Carr believe the quarterback who was a perfect 4-0 in Super Bowls and universally is regarded as one of the best to ever spin it isn't a top-10 signal-caller? Well, things just set up too perfectly for Montana.

Um ... all right.

So, just because Montana's talent was such a perfect fit with legendary coach Bill Walsh, that means the 49ers legend's accomplishments automatically are discounted?

Just an unspeakably brutal take.
