Retired professional baseball player Mark Grudzielanek has listed his home in Del Mar at $2.1 million.
The beach cottage, built in 1955, sits on a quarter-acre in Olde Del Mar with a courtyard and fountain, verdant gardens, raised planters and ocean views. Updated interiors sport hardwood flooring and French doors.
Within the 1,141 square feet of living space are a family room with a fireplace, a country kitchen, two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Outdoors, a stone patio faces the coastline and a sitting area and courtyard hide among tall hedges and palms.
Grudzielanek, 44, played for the Dodgers for five seasons beginning in 1998. He was included in the 2002 trade that sent Eric Karros to the Cubs in exchange for Todd Hundley and Chad Hermansen. The infielder also played for the Expos, Cardinals, Royals, Twins and Indians over a span of 15 seasons, making one All-Star team (1996).
Public records show that Grudzielanek paid $1.358 million for the home in March 2012. The property previously sold in 2006 for $2.395 million. Laura Barry of Barry Estates Inc. is the listing agent.
