Wine cellar, game room and home theater are among features at Jim Edmonds' mansion in Irvine

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.
