Chargers’ star Antonio Gates may have fumbled with his original asking price, but he’s hoping a $500,000 discount can help him unload his Hollywood Hills home.

The record-breaking tight end — he has scored 111 receiving touchdowns in his 14-season career —  has relisted the 4,400-square-foot house for $2.5 million, down from its $3 million price in August, The Real Deal has learned. 

The Contemporary-style hillside property has five bedrooms, 4.5 baths, a “spa-like” master suite, a media room, an elevator, and a chef’s kitchen. Outside, there’s a pool with jacuzzi, two outdoor decks, and two fire pits.

Gates, 36, and his wife Sasha acquired the home for $1.7 million in 2013. They’ve since poured over $500,000 into renovations, according to listing agent Jeff Katz of Berkshire Hathaway.

They’re selling the home now because the couple and their two small children have simply outgrown it, Katz told TRD. They will remain in their primary residence in Poway.

The Hollywood Hills house has been featured on WAGS (wives and girlfriends of sports stars), in which Sasha stars.
