Former Dodger Adrián González lists La Jolla mansion for $16.48 million
Retired baseball star Adrián González is looking to score a huge sale in La Jolla, listing his Hamptons-style mansion overlooking the ocean for $16.48 million.
González, who spent five seasons with the Padres and six with the Dodgers during his decorated Major League Baseball career, paid $7.2 million for the property in 2010, records show.
The half-acre estate is perched in Muirlands, an affluent enclave named after famous conservationist and naturalist John Muir. It spans nearly 10,000 square feet with three levels of living spaces that expand to ocean-facing decks, patios and balconies.
Mixing formal style with coastal flair, the floor plan holds seven bedrooms, 9.5 bathrooms and amenities such as a 12-seat movie theater, wine cellar, tasting room, game room, gym, elevator and wood-paneled office. Another highlight comes in the chef’s kitchen, where a rounded wall of picture windows takes in views of the water.
An expansive terrace hangs off the main level, descending via dual staircases to a stone patio with a swimming pool and spa. Hedges border a grassy lawn at the edge of the space.
González was born in San Diego and played for Eastlake High School in Chula Vista before being drafted by the Florida Marlins with the first overall pick in the 2000 MLB draft. He spent 15 seasons in the league, winning four Gold Glove Awards and playing in five All-Star Games.
