Jimmy Rollins hasn’t played professional baseball for three years, but he’s keeping busy in the San Fernando Valley. A month after shelling out $8.7 million for a brand new mansion in Encino, the longtime Philadelphia Phillies star has put his other home in the neighborhood up for sale at $11.99 million.
The mammoth estate, which spans nearly 15,000 square feet, made waves in the community when he bought it last year. Records show he spent $10.65 million, making it the priciest home sale ever recorded in the San Fernando Valley region.
Eight figures go a long way in Encino. On just over half an acre, the grounds holds a massive main residence, two-story guesthouse, cabana, swimming pool, basketball court and putting green.
Gold trim and dual staircases draw the eye in the whitewashed foyer, which enters into a handful of formal living spaces. On the main level, there’s a dining room with paneled walls, a living room with an oversized stone fireplace, a sauna, movie theater and wine cellar.
A loft sits upstairs, leading into a spacious master suite with dual bathrooms and closets. Pocketing doors open to a private balcony. In total, the property holds eight bedrooms and 10 bathrooms.
Other interior highlights include a wood-paneled office, gym and lap pool under sky-painted ceilings.
A horseshoe-shaped driveway wraps around a fountain in the front, and out back, a patio surrounds a swimming pool.
