When I look at Baltimore Orioles manager Buck Showalter, the first thing that pops to mind isn’t usually, “Now that’s a man who looks like he has impeccable taste.” But hey, when you’re making seven figures annually for managing a baseball team, you can just hire people to take care of artsy crap like interior decoration.
For instance, take a look through the Dallas home Buck currently has on the market for $2.95 million. It’s beyond posh and the last thing I’d expect from him.
Set on just under an acre in Preston Hollow’s estate area, this home offers privacy, security, and casual elegance. Wonderful scale, natural light, handsome formals, large living areas, cook’s kitchen with Wolf and Subzero SS apps, master down, exercise room, gameroom, media rm – just so much to offer. Pretty pool & spa, lovely grounds, open cabana with fireplace, sport court and outdoor patios add up to relaxation and fun for the entire family.
If you’re wondering why Buck, who’s had a home in Baltimore, is just now putting his luxurious Dallas property for sale, he told the Baltimore Sun back in 2013 that it served as a form of family stability as his kids attended colleges in the area (TCU, Southern Methodist). I’m guessing the kids were aching to go home and “do laundry” while daddy Buck managed the O’s to the postseason.
Highlights of Showalter’s Home:
- 6 beds/ 8 baths/ 8,598 sq ft
- Ping pong table over a billiard table
- Basketball court
- Ask for one of Buck’s many baseball bats
- 10 minutes from downtown Dallas
- Just 2.7 miles from Whole Foods
- 5.3 miles from Spearmint Rhino
Mortgage: Around $17,000 not factoring in utilities, outdoor maintenance, etc.
