A defensive end for the New Orleans Saints is taking up residence in Colorado.

Paul Kruger hasn’t given any indication he plans to sign with the Broncos, but the 30-year-old and wife Jacqui Kruger just purchased a $5.4 million estate on 32 acres in Evergreen, the highest-priced real estate to sell in the Denver area last month.

The property, part of a gated community and built in 1975, includes a guest house, horse stable, outdoor arena and recreation center with half a basketball court, in addition to the 10,700-square-foot main house.

The home includes a theater, a wine room and antique doors from a 17th-century monastery in Spain as well as turn-of-the-century China, according to its listing.

Listing agent Ted Schaal of Mason & Morse Ranch Co. said the thing he likes best about the four-bedroom, seven-bathroom house isn’t inside, but out.

“You’ve got mountain views, 200 to 300 degrees, almost in every direction,” he said.

And the house is built to take in those vistas: There are three decks and a patio, not to mention a babbling waterfall.

According to Jefferson County property records, Kruger netted the house for a bargain compared to its last sale. The property was last purchased by Vermantha Evergreen Trust and Julie Halbower in March 2015 for $6.8 million. Halbower is the wife of Chicago hedge fund manager Matthew Halbower, and the trust shares an address with Halbower’s firm, Pentwater Capital Management.

Judging by Kruger’s and his wife’s Instagram posts, the couple is already enjoying mountain living and hitting the slopes at Loveland and Beaver Creek.

Meanwhile, closer to Denver, a Greenwood Village mansion also topped area home sales, selling for $3.75 million on Jan. 24. The five-bedroom, eight-bathroom house at 5545 S. Madison Way, listed by Leslie Cavness of LIV Sotheby’s International Realty, includes a greenhouse, floor-to-ceiling bookshelves in the study and a sauna adjacent to an exercise room.
