The Thousand Oaks estate of former New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Lenny Dykstra has been showing up on the Multiple Listing Service's pre-foreclosure activity report for the last several weeks. The Zillow.com blog posted an item on it in mid-April.
The Richard Landry-designed home is listed for sale at $25 million, having been priced as low as $16.5 million in December. It has been on the market for about a year. Public records show the baseball player purchased it for $18.5 million in August 2007.
The 7-acre compound is gated and has views of the Lake Sherwood community and the country club facilities. The main house has 12,713 square feet of living space, including a receiving parlor, a formal dining room and a state-of-the-art screening room.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
