Although he avoided a workplace trade last year, Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Cody Bellinger has been engaged in a process of a residential trade over the past few months. The pro ball player recently saw his house in Chandler move into pending status — it was listed at $3.999 million in February — while at the same time working out the logistics of a $4.25 million move to Scottsdale.
Bellinger’s new home is considerably larger; for a golf lover, it is also situated more favorably. The Chandler house, a three bedroom with five baths and 4,513 sq. ft. to roam, is located in a quiet residential area south of Phoenix. Bellinger’s new Scottsdale house offers 5,679 sq. ft. of interiors, with four bedrooms and five baths; it also offers solid views of Camelback Mountain in the distance and the Phoenician Golf Course in the foreground.
The highlight of the home’s interiors is the great room, which features a vaulted beamed ceiling, a linear fireplace with a bay design, and a wall of glass capped with a pair of triangular clerestories. The .8-acre lot allows for a leisurely layout, with a long front walk and a pool and spa set into the paver patio in back.
