Retired Major League Baseball shortstop Royce Clayton has put his home in Malibu on the market for $2.495 million.
The ranch-style home, built in 1970 and since updated, sits behind a gated drive on more than an acre with a swimming pool and spa, a larger entertainer’s patio and generous views of the surrounding mountains.
The single-story floor plan, with hardwood flooring, rows of skylights and wide picture windows, has a large game/media room, a center-island kitchen and a living room with a river rock fireplace. The master suite occupies a separate wing with a large walk-in closet for four bedrooms and three bathrooms in 2,640 square feet.
Clayton, a former standout at St. Bernard High School in Playa del Rey, played for 11 different ball clubs across 17 seasons, including stints with the San Francisco Giants, St. Louis Cardinals and Texas Rangers. The 45-year-old twice led the National League in defensive WAR (1994, 1995) and was an all-star with the Cardinals in 1997.
Records show that Clayton purchased the home in 2013 for $1.9 million.
