Former Angel Garret Anderson sells his home base in Irvine for $9.6 million


Garret Anderson, the former slugging outfielder for the Angels and Dodgers, has parted ways with his personal dugout in Irvine. He’s sold his estate in the Shady Canyon community for $9.644 million.

Built in 2009, the Spanish-style mansion features such Old World details as a clay-tiled roof, white-plaster walls and broad archways. A circular foyer, grand living and dining rooms, a library, a game room and a chef’s kitchen are among the living spaces.

Separate his and hers bathrooms highlight the master wing, which opens to a private patio with a spa. There are six bedrooms and 8.5 bathrooms — including a guest suite with a second kitchen — in 9,500 square feet of living space.


Outside, the acre-plus property is set up for living and entertaining and has an outdoor living room, a swimming pool and spa and a pool house. A six-car garage and sports court complete the estate.

The property was returned to market in May for $10.695 million and was more recently priced at $9.988 million, records show. In September, based on 483 sales, the median sales price for combined single-family home and condominium sales was $830,000, up 5.1% year over year, according to CoreLogic.

Brian Backstrom of HK Lane, an affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, was the listing agent. Abbey Young of T.N.G. Real Estate Consultants represented the buyer.

Anderson, 45, holds Angels franchise records for hits and runs batted in with 2,368 and 1,292, respectively. The three-time all-star was inducted into the Halos’ Hall of Fame last year.

He retired in 2011 after 17 seasons in the Major Leagues.
