Jim Edmonds hit 393 home runs over the course of his playing career, but these days the retired Major League Baseball outfielder will settle for a home sale.
The former Angels star is asking $6.95 million for his sprawling Santa Barbara-style home in Irvine, down from $7.999 million when he first listed it for sale a year ago.
The custom home, built in 2008, sits on nearly an acre in the Shady Canyon golf course community and has a detached guest casita, an outdoor kitchen and a pool. Spread across three floors, its 10,000 square feet of living space feature exposed beams, limestone and hardwood flooring, and French doors that open onto expansive loggias.
Among its features are a game room, a home theater, a custom wine cellar and a gym with a sauna. In all, the estate counts six bedrooms, six full baths and five fireplaces.
Now a broadcaster for Fox Sports Midwest, Edmonds, 43, spent the majority of his 17-year career playing for the Angels and St. Louis Cardinals. Eight Gold Glove awards and a World Series championship with the Cardinals in 2006 are among his career highlights.
Tim Smith of Coldwell Banker Previews International is the listing agent.
