Retired MLB outfielder Coco Crisp has reduced the ask on his Rancho Mirage estate to $9.5 million.
Located in California’s Coachella Valley, the lavish resort-style residence was first listed at just under $10 million. The property could pass as a small private resort, so it’s hard to imagine the pro baseball player reducing the price again. Crisp paid $7 million for the property in 2013.
Spanning 17,870 square feet, the expansive Mediterranean mansion was constructed in 2008 and holds seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms. Classic features like large stone fireplaces, stone floors, custom wrought-iron work, and beamed ceilings give the residence an intense period feel that enhances the escapist-friendly feel.
The home begins in grandiose style with a soaring two-story entrance foyer leading into a two-story great room, with a second-story catwalk between. An octagonal wine cellar/tasting room, game room, and home theater are diverting standout spaces in the house.
The property’s exterior is just as heavily engineered to impress as its interior. Separate entrance and exit gates, an artificial pond, and an oval drive are the prologue. Several patios, a tennis court, a pond, a Wiffle ball field, a detached guest house, and a truly massive swimming pool fill out the property.
Crisp formally retired from professional baseball last year; his career included a long stint in Cleveland. In 2007, he helped the Red Sox to win their second World Series pennant of the decade.
