Randy Johnson pocketed $175,550,019 in salary over his MLB career including a meaty $8,000,000 as a 45 year old closing down his career while playing for the Giants in 2009. You’d think his 25,000 sq. ft. Paradise Valley, AZ mansion would be a forever house where you grow old, throw massive parties and remember how much hard work went into making the house a reality.
And…now Randy is selling the place. The place is so insane that you have to ask for the listing price.
Do you sell a 7 bedroom, 12 bath house to upgrade? I highly doubt it. Randy turns 51 in April and doesn’t seem like the kind of guy who wants to wait around for another 25,000 house to be built. At what point did Randy and his wife look at each other and think it was time to dump a place that has a theater that seats 20 and has a sound studio for Randy’s music career? That must’ve been an interesting conversation.
“You ready to sell this place and downsize?”
“Yeah, I’m tired of all this luxury.”
“Cool, let’s find something in the 7,000 sq. ft. range.”
According to Randy’s agent:
Showcasing the very best in home entertainment, this grand estate’s lower level is comprised of a 20-seat private theater, ultra modern music room with pro lighting package, recording studio and custom-designed collectibles showroom. The master bedroom features an oversized sitting area, his & hers vanities, separate walk-in closets, tranquil private patio and direct access to the beautifully manicured rear grounds through a rose-covered trellis.
Zillow estimates the value of the mansion at just under $10,000,000. I’ll guess that the asking is way north of that.
