I can’t believe Braves legend Javy Lopez is selling my dream home. Seriously, this might be one of the nicest houses we’ve come across in the Athlete Real Estate series. Insane, yet classy pool: check. Size: 11,000 sq. ft. Lake view: check. Bar to impress your buddies on football Sundays: check. A bar to hang out in so you don’t risk a DUI: check. A room to work on your model airplanes: check.
Lopez, who made $61,310,500 during his MLB career, tried to sell the house in 2011 with no luck. He’s back to the market and at the same price as he paid for the house in 2007.
Trust me, it appears to be worth it.
According to his realtor:
Backyard oasis with pool, firepit, privacy, and room to play! Main floor boasts Master Suite with Morning Bar; Gentleman’s study; Great Room with coffered ceiling; Formal Dining Room with extensive trim; Chefs kitchen with island; fireside Great Room with exposed beams; AND a screened porch with fireplace! 4 Ensuite bedroom up with bonus room. Terrace level is entertaining dream with room for poker table, billiards, ping pong, wine cellar & custom bar! Home theater, hobby room & gym too! Well over 3 million invested!
Bold for emphasis.
Mortgage: $10,500 before taxes and someone to cut the grass.
