Just a couple of weeks ago we’ve posted a list with the 15 most incredible homes owned by NFL players and now that the regular season in baseball is coming to an end, we’ve decided to make a list with the 15 most amazing homes owned by MLB stars as well.
Today’s best baseball players are some of the world’s highest paid athletes, with many players cashing in over $20 million per year and Clayton Kershaw even breaking the $30 mil/year barrier. With all that money coming out from salaries, plus prizes, endorsements and appearance fees, you know these players will treat themselves in the best way possible.
Owning an extraordinary home is one of the perks of being the best of the best in this game and today we’ll take a look at the most extraordinary mansions currently owned by MLB players.
15. Miguel Cabrera – Detroit Tigers
Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera has bought this incredible lakefront mansion in Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan, just a year ago, for $3.2 million. Built in 1966 and listed for sale in 2013, this classy home has 11,175 square foot of living space, sitting on 2½ acres right next to Lake St. Clair. It comes with a massive heated garage that could hold up 8 cars, a swimming pool and even a putting green, a glass solarium with marble floors and a library with movable walls hiding secret areas. So even Bond would love this place.
14. Ryan Braun – Milwaukee Brewers
The former NL Rookie of the Year from Milwaukee Brewers bought this stunning Mediterranean-style mansion in Malibu, California, a couple of years ago for $4.85 million, featuring 7,587 square foot with seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms. Ryan Braun can also enjoy amazing ocean views, a movie theater, a swimming pool and spa, three fireplaces and a four car garage, in his lovely Malibu pad.
13. Adrian Gonzalez – Los Angeles Dodgers
Adrian Gonzalez moved to the Los Angeles Dodgers back in 2012 and he instantly became a favorite among fans there. He has also bought an extravagant 11,000 square foot mansion in the town of La Jolla, California, for $7.2 million, built in an Eastern seaboard/Cape Cod-style. The luxurious estate features seven bedrooms with seven bathrooms, an outdoor and breakfast patio, a nice swimming pool, a small theater, an exercise room and a wine cellar as well. Not bad for the LA Dodgers slugger, right?
12. Mark Teixeira – New York Yankees
New York Yankees star Mark Teixeira is the proud owner of this gorgeous Texas mansion ever since he played for the Texas Rangers. He tried to sell it a couple of times, for around $4 million, but that didn’t work out and he can still call this 8,000 square foot villa in Westlake, Texas, home. Located in an exclusive golf club community, this home overlooks the golf course and a lake, sitting on one acre of land. It has four bedrooms, eight baths and even a separate guest house, located right next to the main house. There’s also a home theater, a swimming pool, wet bar, a game room, a private patio with hot tub and even a two level office.
11. Adrian Beltre – Texas Rangers
Even though Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre has sold this lavish estate in California just two years ago for $17.4 million, it’s still worthy of a spot on this list. This mansion was situated in the Bradbury Estates community, offering 16,600 square foot of living space, with seven bedrooms and 17 bathrooms and also a spacious guesthouse. The home was initially listed at $19.8 million and also comes with a basketball court, some putting greens, an infinity pool and even a batting cage. Yeah, that’s what a pro needs at home.
