Los Angeles Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen, who earlier this year moved down the Southern California coastline, has put his home in Redondo Beach in play at $2.35 million.

Built in 2008, the upgraded two-story home displays elements of both East Coast traditional and Craftsman style. Tapered columns support a covered patio that runs across the front of the house. Overhanging eaves, stone accents and paneled siding are among other exterior details.

Inside, there’s an updated kitchen with a center island, living and dining areas and an office/den. The 2,710 square feet of interior space includes four bedrooms and four updated bathrooms, including a second-story master suite with a walk-in closet. French doors off the master bedroom open to a street-facing balcony.


A network of trellises tops a patio area and outdoor kitchen in the backyard. There’s also a fenced play area and a two-car garage.

Jansen, 30, bought the house three years ago for $1.595 million, records show.

The Dodgers pitcher has established himself as one of baseball’s premier closers and finished last season tied with Greg Holland for the most saves in the National League (41). The two-time all-star signed a five-year deal with the team two years ago that will keep him with the Boys in Blue through the 2021 season.

Mark Smiley and Antonio Davis of Cynergy Realty Group are the listing agents.
