CC Sabathia, all-star pitcher for the New York Yankees, has parted with his home near Fairfield, Calif., selling the three-bedroom residence complete with a custom man cave for $1.43 million.

The custom-built home, on more than a third of an acre in Solano County’s Green Valley, surfaced in June with an asking price of $1.5 million. Sabathia paid $1.065 million for the property in 2004, records show.

Built in 2004, the residence includes a double-height living room, a formal dining room, an office, a center-island kitchen and a master suite with a two-sided fireplace and a wet bar in about 4,100 square feet.

Among highlights is a man cave/media room outfitted with custom stadium seating, a row of flat-screen televisions, a wet bar and various baseball memorabilia. In keeping with the sports theme, an additional bedroom has a football field rug and leather baseball glove chairs.


Outdoors, a large patio space contains a barbecue area and a stone-lined pool with a covered spa and waterfall feature.

Sabathia, who was limited to just eight starts last year due to injury, is expected to start throwing bullpen sessions at the end of the month. The 34-year-old has 208 wins across 14 seasons with the Indians, Brewers and Yankees, earning six all-star nods and winning the AL Cy Young Award in 2007.

The Vallejo native owns other property in the Solano County as well as in New Jersey.

Cathleen Rojas of RE/MAX Gold was the listing agent. Monica Hartinger, also of RE/MAX Gold, represented the buyer in the sale.
