Matt Kemp lists his spring training spot for sale at $3.5 million


Matt Kemp may be on the move once again.

The All-Star outfielder, traded by the Dodgers to the Padres in December, has put his home in Paradise Valley, Ariz., on the market for $3.5 million.

A circular driveway with a fountain marks the entrance to the desert contemporary. Built in 1999, the single-story floor plan is distinguished by vaulted interiors with walls of glass, polished steel accents, custom lighting and 20 flat-screen televisions. Among highlights is a movie theater with stadium seating and a game room complete with a wet bar and wine storage.

Other living spaces include large formal areas, a family room with custom built-ins, an office and an updated kitchen in about 6,700 square feet. There are four bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms, including a master suite with a two-way fireplace, a steam shower and custom closets.


Outdoors, the 1.32-acre grounds center on a 60-foot pool and spa with a swim-up bar and a waterfall. Furthering the resort-like vibe is a gazebo, an outdoor kitchen and a sports court. Elsewhere, a detached casita has an additional en-suite.

Kemp, twice an All-Star, batted .287 with 25 home runs and 89 RBIs across 150 games for the Dodgers last season, seeing time at each of the outfield positions. He is joined by other offseason acquisitions Justin Upton and Wil Myers in the Padres new-look outfield.

The outfielder purchased the home in 2010, following his fifth season with the Dodgers, for $2.05 million. Daniel R. Williams of Sunbelt Realty & Business Advisors is the listing agent, according to the Multiple Listing Service.
