Baseball star Jimmy Rollins has relisted his Encino, California, home for $10.8 million
Former baseball MVP Jimmy Rollins has cut the asking price for his Encino, California property to $10.8 million after failing to find a buyer.
It is the third price drop since the 11,000-square-foot mansion was first posted in early October for $11.75 million. According to the Compass listing, the 44-year-old former shortstop cut the price by $400,000 in January and relisted the home over the weekend at the current asking price.
The mansion has about 11,000 square feet of space
According to PropertyShark records, Mr. Rollins, who played for the Philadelphia Phillies for the duration of his 17-year career and was voted the National League’s Most Valuable Player MVP in 2007, paid $8.7 million for the house in late 2018.
When Mr. Rollins moved in, the house was just finished; it had been built in 2018. According to listing images, the house is in a gated neighborhood and has a double-height entrance that opens to an open living space with wood flooring, a wet bar, and a wall of windows that open to the outside. It also has a double-sided gas fireplace. There is also a freshly added glass-enclosed wine room, according to the listing.
It has an open layout with direct access to the outdoors
The main living space is connected to a kitchen with two islands, a breakfast nook, and access to the backyard.
There are nine bedrooms and eleven bathrooms, according to the description, including a “large and lavish” master suite with a fireplace, a private patio, and a bathroom with a soaking tub and standing shower.
The rooftop of the house has a 3,000-square-foot roof terrace, while the backyard has a zero-edge pool with a spa, an outdoor eating area with a BBQ, and a two-story guesthouse.
Mr. Rollins has owned the property since 2018
Mr. Rollins, who also played for the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Chicago White Sox and was given four Golden Gloves, is now a Turner Sports baseball analyst. According to the Alameda Post, he is also the co-owner of a cannabis store in his hometown of Alameda, California, which makes his nickname “J-Roll” even more apt.
A request for response from Mr. Rollins’ representative was not immediately returned. The property’s agents did not reply promptly to a request for comment.
