Chargers Owner Dean Spanos Is Moving

Raise your hand if you’re surprised the man who decided to move San Diego’s beloved football franchise north to — well, we can’t even say it — still owns a home in America’s Finest City.
Well, it’s true, but maybe not for much longer. Turns out Chargers owner Dean Spanos put his “house” in La Jolla on the market last week, and prospective buyers, nosy folks and fans/ex-fans can check out the listing on Zillow and elsewhere.
Berkshire Hathaway’s Ross Clark, who is named on Zillow as the listing agent, confirmed that the “private compound” on Hillside Drive in La Jolla listed on the real-estate site is being shopped for a cool $17.95 million — hey, we know what you're thinking: That’s EIGHTEEN MILLION DOLLARS. No, it's not. It's $17,950,000.
But we digress: That price tag gets you 10 bathrooms and 6 bedrooms spread out over more than 10,000 square feet.
“The house is a phenomenal property with incredible views,” Clark said on Tuesday morning, adding that it was built on a sort of “peninsula lot, with lots of sun and views of the whole coast up to North County.”
One signing bonus for anybody with sticker shock: Off-street parking is a snap once you get through the street-side gate, thanks to an eight-car garage and a two-lane driveway running along half of the house.
No big surprise that the property also boasts a recently remodeled kitchen (side-by side ovens with twin TVs perched above!), elevator, pool, massage room, wine cellar, gym, bar/media room, offices and grounds boasting what the listing calls “an orchard and wandering paths.”
Photos of that bar/media room offer perhaps the most personal window into the lives of the home’s soon-to-be former occupants, showcasing trophies, footballs, a helmet and a throw blanket that we can only assume is Charger blue.
Getting nearly $18 million for the compound might be a third-and-long situation, however. We're no experts but presumably they are at Zillow, which put a "Zestimate" on the home at $16,298,604, with an sales range between $14.99 million and $17.11 million.
If the Spanos family is able to complete the pass, though, the new owners may have to have to shell out as much $81,056 per month, with taxes coming in at $11,368 monthly -- quite a bump since last year, when the tax assessment on the home, according to Zillow, was $4,822,896 -- with taxes for 2019 a much-lower $59,331.
