The sprawling 24-acre property with a 21,890-square-foot main house was previously the property of Hall of Fame shortstop Cal Ripken Jr. Jones emerged as the winning bidder for the massive estate in an auction just last year.
Ripken had originally placed the compound on the market for $12.5 million in 2016. Striking out on a sale, the Hall of Famer placed the home in a no-reserve auction, where fellow big leaguer Jones picked it up for a reported $3.465 million.
And that wasn’t the only real estate move Jones made last year. Shortly after winning Ripken’s regal spread, the 33-year-old placed his suburban Maryland mansion in on the market for a hefty $2.7 million. That property is now off market, and Jones is still listed as the owner.
Now that the Ripken estate finds itself available again, perhaps some other Orioles may flock to take a look at the home. It’s built for a major-league ballplayer.
Ripken purchased the land in 1984, built the home in 1987, and renovated it in the late 1990s. The layout features plenty of perks a big leaguer would appreciate.
The gated estate offers an attached sports complex with an indoor basketball court, gym, locker room, and batting cage, as well as a hydrotherapy and shower room.
The grounds include a large pond, a pool with spa and poolhouse, and two garages. Plus, fans of the national pastime will appreciate the regulation baseball diamond that completes the offering.
Indoors, the layout includes six bedrooms, 15 bathrooms, with gathering and entertainment rooms, a chef’s kitchen, and a main-level master suite with two dressing rooms and two master baths. Guests or family members can easily be invited to stay, given that there are five more bedroom suites, two with full kitchens and separate entries. Entertainment features on the lower level include a home theater, a bar, and a media room.
As great as this property sounds, it was destined to sit empty after Jones signed a one-year contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks. His desert migration has led to his attempt to do a quick flip of the home after owning it for less than a year.
Previously, the San Diego native played with the Orioles from 2008-2018. The five-time All Star has earned four Gold Gloves and a Silver Slugger Award.
Karen Hubble Bisbee holds the listing.
