Baseball star Evan Longoria snags a Spanish bungalow in West Hollywood
Evan Longoria can forgo the team hotel for the comforts of home the next time the Tampa Bay Rays are in town to play the Angels or Dodgers. That’s because the local baseball product and slugging third baseman has bought a house in West Hollywood for $1.95 million.
Set within walled and gated grounds, the 1925 Spanish-style home has been recently renovated and features a courtyard entry, beamed ceilings and arched doorways.
Within the 1,850 square feet of space is a living room with a fireplace, a formal dining room, an office and an updated kitchen. The master suite sports his and hers vanities and a large soaking tub for a total of three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Outdoors, hedged grounds include a patio, courtyard/sitting area and a large lawn. A two-car garage sits behind a gated driveway.
A three-time all-star, Longoria (no relation to actress Eva Longoria) has deep roots in Southern California, having attended Long Beach State, where he shared Big West Player of the Year honors in 2006, and before that at St. John Bosco High School in Bellflower.
