In the market for a California home owned by Garrett Atkins, a former promising stud Rockies third baseman who finished 15th in 2006 MVP voting? He’s selling his 7,600 sq. ft. Irvine, California house with “forever views” and a shiny pool.
Atkins might’ve only made $16,489,500 during his professional career, but the guy sure knew how to invest in real estate. He paid $4,575,000 for this house in 2009, just as he made $7 million playing for the Rockies that same year.
By 2010 his career was ending.
But he had the house. Now the self-proclaimed Republican (@GAtkins32) is selling this piece of beauty.
Welcome to a fabulous custom in the hills of Shady Canyon with an ideal location capturing sweeping views of Shady Canyon golf course, hills, canyons and beautiful gardens. Classic Santa Barbara architecture is complemented by resort style grounds offering a pool, spa, BBQ and fireplace patio, private side yard patio, and loggia with fireplace and TV and 3 additional view terraces. Meticulous attention to detail is evidenced throughout with exquisite finishes including hardwood flooring, magnificent fireplaces, Walker Zanger stone and tile detailing, granite and marble counters, Venetian plaster walls and hand crafted built-ins.
