The San Francisco 49ers won’t open the gates to their new stadium until the 2014 season, but at least one of their Pro Bowl players is getting a head start on the move.

All-Pro linebacker NaVorro Bowman has picked up a fancy new spread in the suburbs of Santa Clara County. Records show that the 49ers defender recently paid $3.1 million for a stately Traditional in the Rose Garden neighborhood of San Jose.

Located roughly 15 minutes south of Levi’s Stadium, the 49ers’ soon-to-be new home, Bowman’s property sits on a half-acre lot and has five bedrooms, four bathrooms, three fireplaces and a half bath. Built in 1951, the home has been extensively redesigned and remodeled by Bay Area builders De Mattei and now offers nearly 6,000 square feet of living space.

The home opens to a two-story foyer with marble flooring and a wrought-iron stairway. Further along is a sitting room with vaulted ceilings, a comfortable family room with custom finishes, and a chef’s kitchen with stainless steel appliances.

Upstairs, there is a rec room with a wet bar; and tucked away in a secluded corner of the home is a wood-paneled office. The master suite comes complete with a private sitting room, fireplace and spa-like bath. Last, but certainly not least, the athlete’s abode rounds out with a gated pool, sports court and a covered loggia with an outdoor kitchen and fireplace.

A former third-round pick out of Penn State, Bowman has notched back-to-back All-Pro First Team nods in each of the past two seasons while teaming with Patrick Willis to anchor the San Francisco defense. His 120 tackles through 13 games this season is fourth-best in the NFL.
