Baseball’s Matt Kemp looks for a hit in the Poway home market

Matt Kemp, who is back with the Dodgers following an offseason trade, has put his mansion in the Heritage Estates, a guard-gated community in Poway, back up for sale. The asking price is $7.95 million.

The 15,884-square-foot home, which Kemp has spent about $3 million to upgrade, was headed for the auction block last year before the slugging outfielder elected not to proceed with the sale. He bought the San Diego County property in 2013 for $9.075 million, records show.


Sitting at the end of a cul-de-sac, the roughly 4-acre estate includes a tennis court, an infinity-edge swimming pool and a six-car garage. A separate pool/guesthouse contains a gym and Roman steam spa.

The five-bedroom, five-bathroom main house has 20-foot-high ceilings, an updated kitchen, a barbershop and a private office. The home theater has its own snack bar, and the wine vault has storage for 1,200 bottles. The cigar lounge is equipped with an air filtration system.

Two walk-in closets and two showers highlight the over-the-top master suite.

Kemp, 33, is a two-time all-star who began his career with the Dodgers. He was reacquired by the Los Angeles team in December after spending last year with the Atlanta Braves.

Jessica Foote of Keller Williams Realty holds the listing.
