NFL legend and Hall of Famer Jerry Rice has finally sold his custom-built Atherton mansion after almost six years.

The six-bedroom, ten-bathroom was originally put on the market in 2007 for $22 million. But after failing to find a buyer, the former San Francisco 49er sold the home for less than half the original asking price at $9 million, reports Realtor.com.

Rice had the three-story mansion built in 2001 and comes complete with a vast array of luxuries – including a dedicated gift wrapping room.

Set in 1.4 acres of one of the U.S’s most expensive zip codes, the house boasts a guesthouse, deluxe home cinema, own elevator and game room with full bar.

Befitting for a sportsman known for his gruelling workouts, the mansion also has a full gym, with steam room, sauna and plunge pool.

He told Haute Living Magazine in 2010: ‘If I’m up late and can’t sleep, I can just trot downstairs for a workout and then relax in the sauna or rejuvenate with the cold plunge.

‘I love it for privacy reasons, too. I love being able to get into my workout without having to consider the social aspects of going out to a gym.’

There is also a seven-car garage and a 5,000 sq ft basement, which houses a games room, full bar, wine room and craft room.
