A buyer can snag the San Diego home belonging to Washington Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg. The All-Star hurler relisted the home for $1,325,000, according to the Washington Post. That’s a slight reduction from the $1,349,000 it was going for in January.
Located in the gated golf community of Santaluz, the Spanish-style bungalow is on an elevated lot that backs up to natural open space. Brandon Ruddy holds the listing.
Strasburg bought the property soon after signing a four-year, $15.1 million contract with the Nationals. He was the first overall pick of the 2009 MLB draft after starring on the mound at San Diego State. The home was purchased through a trust for $1.24 million in 2010.
Built in 2003, the home features a roof made of red clay tiles and a driveway that turns into a courtyard with a fountain. The formal dining room opens to the patio, allowing indoor-outdoor dining and entertaining. Hardwood flooring runs throughout the home, with chandeliers gracing some rooms.
The 3,750-square-foot layout includes four bedrooms and five bathrooms. A bed and bath can be found downstairs, while the remaining three bedrooms are upstairs.
With a large center island and bar seating, the open kitchen looks out to the family room. Other features include a loft/media room, den, and breakfast nook. The patio comes with a fireplace and built-in barbecue.
Strasburg is a three-time All Star with 1,444 strikeouts over his nine-year career with the Nats.
