Buy Vernon Wells’ Texas Mansion Featuring A Private Lake — $9.9 Million

Vernon Wells retired from baseball in 2013. I’m pretty sure that was the last time I heard Vernon Wells’ name. Right now you’re probably saying, “oh yeah, I remember Vernon Wells, what ever happened to him?” Well, my man retired and just went on his way. 15 years as a solid outfielder, a few All-Star appearances and then poof, disappeared out of the spotlight.

Now today, the boss and I are trying to figure out what to post to round out the end of the day and he sends me this link to Vernon Wells’ house that just went on the market. 4 years and I haven’t thought about this dude and now here I am posting his sweet house on the internet.

Details from the realtor:

Impressive Jauregui built estate home in Vaquero with water view! Amenities include complete health center with exercise studio & batting cage, spa with sauna, jetted tub, massage room & salon, game room with media room & bar. Spacious guest suite has living room, kitchen & dual bedrooms. Sprawling master suite with sitting room & fireplace, outdoor terrace, luxurious master bath & closet extending into large laundry & utility room. Covered & open patios extend the length of the home with outdoor kitchen, stone fireplace, water feature & firepit. Infinity edge pool with slide, submerged barstools & attached spa. 

You’re getting the full package if you buy this monster. Guys like Vernon are smart. They buy a house away from a big city, get that bang for their buck, then put in all the extra shit they ever wanted it and save money. You get a private lake, a massive house and a ton of land for $10 million.
