Rangers’ Josh Hamilton puts his Texas mansion up for sale


Professional baseball player Josh Hamilton, who sold his ocean-view home in Newport Coast in December, is ready to make another change to his off-field lineup. He’s put his home in Westlake, Texas, up for sale for a little over $3.43 million.

Found in an affluent golf course community, the gated estate centers on a two-story home with five bedrooms and eight bathrooms in about 9,800 square feet of living space. Lawns, mature trees and a swimming pool with a waterfall feature fill the acre-plus of grounds.

Inside, the floor plan features a rounded foyer that opens to various formal areas. Beamed ceilings, hand-painted walls, wainscoting and hardwood floors are among the interior details. There are four stone fireplaces.


A great room, a formal dining room, a center-island kitchen, an office/library and a home theater are among the living spaces.The master suite has his and hers closets.

Off the back of the home is a covered patio with an outdoor fireplace and a built-in barbecue. Elsewhere is a four-car garage.

Hamilton bought the house in 2011, records show.

Jamie Adams of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty holds the listing.

Hamilton, 35, put his Newport Coast home on the market last year around the same time he was traded by the Anaheim Angels to the Rangers. It eventually sold in late December for $12.5 million.

The former American League most valuable player underwent season-ending knee surgery last month to repair a torn ACL. He did not appear in a game this season for the Rangers and is under contract through 2017, with the Angels picking up some $50 million of his remaining salary as part of the 2015 trade.
