Pete Rose of Big Red Machine fame has hustled a deal in Sherman Oaks, selling his longtime residence for $1.96 million.
The gated home, built in Spanish style in 1999, features a two-story floor plan with hardwood flooring, skylights and wrought-iron railings. The 4,719 square feet of living space includes an entry hall, a formal living room, a den/office, six bedrooms and 4.75 baths.
Outdoors, the quarter-acre grounds contain a swimming pool and spa, a covered patio and a detached multi-use structure.
Rose, 73, totaled a Major League best 4,256 hits, 17 All-Star appearances and three World Series titles in 24 seasons with the Cincinnati Reds, Philadelphia Phillies and Montreal Expos. Last year, he appeared in the TLC reality series “Pete Rose: Hits & Mrs” with his fiancée, Kiana Kim.
The home originally came to market in October 2013 at $2.15 million, but saw its asking price drop to $1.975 million in late April. Rose and his second wife, Carol, paid $913,500 for the property in 1999, public records show.
Gloria Correll of Rodeo Realty listed the home on behalf of Rose. Mary Helen Michel of Sotheby’s International Realty represented the buyers in the sale, which closed on Thursday.
