Alex Smith, quarterback for the Washington Football Team until earlier this year, has sold his 6,300-square-foot mansion in McLean for $5,800,000. He first listed the property for $6,750,000 in June, a few months after he was released from the team.

The house sits on more than two acres that back onto parkland. It has five bedrooms and five-and-a-half bathrooms, a huge swimming pool, several patios, an outdoor shower and fireplace, a climate-controlled wine cellar, and a four-car garage. It was listed for sale by Mark and Hunter McFadden of Compass.

Though it went for nearly a million under Smith’s original asking price, he appears to have made out well on his investment. According to property records, the place last sold in 2018—when it was brand new—for $3,895,000.

Take a look around.
