Bruce Miller, a former San Francisco 49ers tight end, has put his 2,300-square-foot home on the market in red-hot Santa Clara, CA, for $1.55 million. The listing comes less than a month after he was arrested on charges he attacked a man and his elderly father. He was cut by the team shortly thereafter.
Listed on Oct. 10, the home is already in pending status. It has four bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms and sits on a 4,100-square-foot lot in the city’s Rivermark neighborhood. The neighborhood is near the headquarters of major Silicon Valley employers such as Cisco, Intel, and Nvidia. It’s also less than 2 miles away from Levi’s Stadium, home of the 49ers.
Built in 2003, the two-story, Contemporary Spanish — style home features hardwood flooring, new carpeting, and custom paint.
The living room has a surround-sound speaker system, a gas fireplace, and light-filtering window shades. The master bedroom has a walk-in closet and a master bathroom with dual sinks, marble flooring, and a frameless shower.
The kitchen includes granite countertops, white cabinets, stainless-steel appliances, and an island. Miller bought the home in mid-2014 for $1.4 million.
Miller, 29, was drafted in 2011 by the 49ers for a fullback position. He recorded 62 rushing yards on 28 carries and 734 receiving yards on 76 catches, for a total of four career touchdowns. He was set to switch positions and become a tight end in 2016, under new head coach Chip Kelly.
Miller was arrested in early September on multiple counts of assault and battery, after he allegedly tried to barge into an elderly couple’s hotel room in San Francisco and got in a fight with a 70-year-old man and his son, who was staying next door. The team released him from his contract later that day.
In 2015, Miller pleaded no contest to charges he pushed his then-girlfriend into a wall and smashed her cellphone.
