Andrew Friedman completed one last deal as Dodgers camp came to a close on Wednesday. The new team president capped a whirlwind offseason with the purchase of a $6.415-million home in Pasadena.
Set behind a gated drive, along a cul-de-sac, the Cape Cod-inspired Traditional takes in panoramic views of the San Gabriel Mountains, the Rose Bowl and surrounding Brookside Golf Course. Marked by a wide front porch, the 6,200-square-foot home features a media room, a mahogany wood-paneled library and a wine cellar.
Other living spaces include large common areas, a chef's kitchen with a center island, six bedrooms and six bathrooms. The master suite has a sitting room with a fireplace, a large walk-in closet and a private balcony.
Outside, grounds of more than half an acre contain a covered loggia with a cobblestone fireplace, large expanses of grass and a pool and spa. A motor court sits at the entrance of the home.
Mark Ogden of Sotheby's International Realty and Boyd Smith and Matt Littell of Podley Properties were the listing agents. Susan and Brad Mohr of Partners Trust Real Estate Brokerage & Acquisitions represented Friedman in the sale, which took place outside the Multiple Listing Service.
Friedman, who joined the Dodgers front office October after a decade with the Tampa Bay Rays, previously sold a waterfront home in St. Petersburg, Fla., in November for the asking price of $2.35 million.
The 38-year-old will reportedly earn $35 million over the next five years as part of his contract with the Dodgers, making him the highest-paid front office executive in baseball.
