Christian McCaffrey is busy gearing up for his first shot at a Super Bowl title. But that hasn’t stopped the San Francisco 49ers running back from making a real estate play, hoisting his lavish residence in the North Carolina town of Mooresville up for sale at $12.5 million—or an impressive $5 million more than the NFL’s newly named “Offensive Player of the Year” paid for the lakeside spread a little over three years ago.
Per The Wall Street Journal, the former Carolina Panthers player bought the property in late 2020 for $7.5 million. A sales record at the time for the metro Charlotte area—one-upped by the $7.6 million transfer of another home on the lake in 2023—the French chateau-style manor could once again see top ranking if it sells for anywhere near the asking price. Victoria Speer of The Agency Charlotte serves as the listing agent.

Resting amid a gated parcel spanning nearly 9 acres, on about 500 feet of waterfront footage along the shores of Lake Norman, the stucco, stone and timber-clad structure was crafted by JJ Barja of Elite Design Group in 2019. A main six-bedroom home is connected via a porte-cochere to a one-bedroom guesthouse sitting atop a three-car garage that’s been converted into a gym, with glitzy amenities ranging from another gym and a sauna, to a movie theater, wine cellar, safe room, and family room and bar area that open to a terrace.
As for the primary dwelling, a little more than 11,800 square feet of elevator-accessible living space on three levels is introduced by a grand foyer topped with a 60-foot turret ceiling and displaying a curving wrought-iron staircase. From there, a vaulted great room is anchored by a two-way fireplace and large expanses of glass offering picturesque lake views, and other highlights include a formal dining room, wood-paneled study and gourmet kitchen outfitted with top-tier appliances, plus an upstairs master retreat hosting a screened-in terrace, two-story closet and luxe bath.
Most of the aforementioned amenities can be found on the lower level; and outdoors, the woodsy grounds are spotlighted by a saltwater pool and spa, fire-pit, and paved pathway leading down to a private beach and dock. An added bonus: McCaffrey’s boat, Wildcat ATV, jet ski and golf court are all included in the sale, with his personal training equipment in the garage-turned-gym also up for negotiations.
The 27-year-old Colorado native was originally drafted by the Carolina Panthers out of Stanford University with the No. 8 overall pick in 2017. McCaffrey went on to join the San Francisco 49ers in 2022, where he’s since become only the fourth player in the team’s history to surpass 2,000 scrimmage yards and is set to compete in the NFC Championship game versus the Detroit Lions Jan. 28.
