Free agent professional baseball player Ryan Madson tossed his home in Temecula onto the market at $1.75 million.
The home, built in 2007, occupies nearly two acres in the heart of Temecula's wine country with a basketball half-court, a courtyard, a custom pool and a hillside flush with grapevines.
Clad in travertine and rustic wood finishes, the 4,984 square feet of living space includes a chef’s kitchen with dual islands, a family room, a formal dining room, a temperature-controlled office, five bedrooms and three full bathrooms. The master suite has dual vanities and a large soaking tub.
Framing valley views, the pool features a beach-style entry, a spa, a swim-in grotto and a pair of water slides. A playground sits adjacent to the lighted sports court.
Madson, 33, played for the Philadelphia Phillies from 2003 to 2011, pitching primarily out of the bullpen. He signed with the Angels after missing the entire 2012 season following Tommy John surgery but was released in 2013 without having played a game for the Halos.
Records show that Madson and his wife, Sarah, purchased the home in May 2012 for $1.2 million. The couple own a separate 2.4-acre property in the area that they purchased in December 2012 for $550,000.
Dan Evans of California Home Pros is the listing agent.
