Former San Francisco 49ers center Jeremy Newberry is selling his Brentwood mansion and cherry orchard farm for $4.98 million, reports Realtor.com. Newberry purchased the East Contra Costa property in 2019, but he told TMZ he’s leaving California because he thinks the state’s COVID-19 protocols are too strict.
Newberry is looking to move to a state where his children can attend school and participate in sports, according to the report. “Somewhere in the country that’s open. I kinda feel like these kids are getting deprived from their childhood because everything’s locked down,” he says.
The property includes a 4,300-square-foot house with five bedrooms and six bathrooms; it features a master suite with a heated-floor bathroom, a gym, game room and pool among many other amenities. The property also touts a 40-acre cherry farm, with 12 acres of mature cherry trees and 23 acres of newly planted trees, as well as a and a 7,200-square-foot shop to help process the fruit.
Deneen Vornhagen with Delta Ranches & Homes is the current listing agent.
The two-time Pro Bowl center grew up in nearby Antioch and starred for Antioch High. Newberry played for eight seasons with the 49ers and later for the Raiders for one season. He currently works as an NFL analyst.
