All-Star pitcher Stephen Strasburg is ready to deal his hometown digs. The San Diego native has listed a Spanish-style home in Santaluz for $1.349 million, records show.

Through a trust, he paid $1.24 million for the property in 2010 soon after signing a four-year rookie contract with the Washington Nationals worth $15.1 million. At the time, it was the most guaranteed money ever given to a draft pick.

Built in 2003, the two-story house is clad in tan stucco and red clay tile. The interior offers four bedrooms and five bathrooms across 3,570 square feet.


Hardwood covers the main floor, which holds a formal dining room, center-island kitchen, breakfast nook and living room with a fireplace.

Three bedrooms and a loft fill out the second story. In the master suite, arched doorways open to a front-facing Juliet balcony.

Outside, a privacy gate and garage combine to create a courtyard with a fountain. A flagstone patio with a fireplace lounge complete the scene out back.

Brandon Ruddy and Jeff Gray of Keller Williams Realty hold the listing.


Strasburg, 30, pitched at San Diego State University before the Nationals drafted him with the first overall pick of the 2009 MLB Draft. Since then, he’s struck out 1,444 batters to go along with three All-Star appearances and a Silver Slugger Award in 2012. | Twitter: @jflem94
