After being on and off the market since 2010, the Seattle home of former professional baseball player Jamie Moyer has sold for $3.2 million. The pitcher scooped up the seven-bedroom, 4.5- bathroom estate for $2.805 million in 2001, while he was playing for the Seattle Mariners. His first attempt to sell the manse was in 2010 for $7.8 million. The home dropped in price significantly over the years, before the buyer swooped in this month stealing the home for $4.6 million less than the original asking price.
While the home may seem like it came at a discounted price, there is nothing cheap about this luxury abode. Listing photos reveal a beautiful gourmet kitchen with French marble flooring and enough counter space for any cooking enthusiast! The mansion is full of character, with exposed brick living spaces and elegant arched doorways leading to different sections of the estate. Moyer’s guests were probably never bored: The abode has a theater room, pool and a beautiful outdoor entertaining area with a barbecue grill. And of course, the home comes with its own batting cage!
The gated estate sits on nearly a half-acre surrounded by large hedges, giving the new owners plenty of privacy. The house was built in 1933 and, while much of the home has been renovated, it still maintains its historical charm.
