Busy trying to lead the Dodgers to their first World Series appearance since 1988, star player Yasiel Puig will have a new Los Angeles residence to settle into once the team’s postseason finally wraps up. As Variety reports, the right fielder has purchased a spacious Mediterranean-style home in Encino’s quiet Amestoy Estates neighborhood.
Built in 2002, the gated five-bedroom home has just over 5,000 square feet of floor space, with 4.5 bathrooms and open living areas. The cavernous master bedroom includes a fireplace, an en-suite bathroom, and access to a private balcony overlooking the backyard.
Other interior features include an office space, a formal dining room, and a well-equipped kitchen with a wine cooler, a center island, and a bit of bar seating.
The house sits on a lot close to one half-acre in size. The grounds include a three-car garage, an outdoor fireplace-equipped patio, a covered barbecue area, and a swimming pool, spa, and grassy backyard.
Puig paid $2.65 million for the property, which last sold in 2013 for $1.75 million, prior to a host of recent upgrades.
The Dodgers slugger still owns another San Fernando Valley property in Sherman Oaks, according to Variety. The house listed earlier this year for $2.3 million, but didn’t sell.
