I know what you’re thinking. I was thinking the same thing. How does Brad Radke live in that house? No clue. I’m pretty much speechless. We’re talking about an 11,495 sq. ft. behemoth on Florida’s Bellaire Beach, near Clearwater. Brad has been trying to sell the six bedroom, eight bath house since 2012 when it went on the market for $9.95 million.
Brad made $61,859,000 during his MLB career that ended in 2006. I’m still thinking what you’re thinking: How in the hell does the guy keep the electric on in this ridiculous house? Or, how in the hell did he afford to build it in the first place?
According to his realtor:
Reminiscent of a European estate, this magnificent waterfront home displays impressive craftsmanship, countless architectural details and modern luxury. Fine finishes, custom amenities and hand painted murals embellish this 11,000 square foot home, built in 2009, which overlooks wide open water on the Intracoastal Waterway. A two story foyer sets the level of sophistication with its handsome wood staircase, grand chandelier, reclaimed quarry stone floor and aged crumble plaster walls. A formal living room and dining room feature stunning special features. A finely appointed island kitchen with custom Olde World cabinetry and professional appliances combines with a generous butler’s pantry to provide for your every need. The spectacular great room features both fireplace and media sitting areas adjoining an open breakfast area. The floor plan includes a state of the art media room, game room with walk-in bar, exercise room, library and 500 bottle wine vault.
Seriously, nondescript Brad Radke lives here. SMH.
