Retired Major League Baseball star Johnny Damon has placed his extravagant Florida mansion on the market, with a staggering asking price of US$30 million.
Nestled in Windermere, a suburb of Orlando, this expansive estate covers nearly five acres and boasts an impressive 165m of lakefront on Lake Butler.
According to the Robb Report, Damon and his wife Michelle acquired the land back in 2007 for US$4 million.
The 2787sq m mansion, completed in 2010, is a testament to luxury and grandeur.
Alice Anne Jackson of Corcoran Premier Realty highlighted in a press statement that the property was meticulously designed as a dream home, catering to both family living and entertainment.
This palatial home features nine bedrooms and an astonishing 15 bathrooms. In terms of amenities, it leaves little to the imagination.
The primary suite, located in a dedicated wing on the first level, comes with a coffee bar, a two-storey closet, and both indoor and outdoor showers.
The kitchen is a chef’s dream, boasting large islands, a walk-in pantry, a breakfast bar, and a separate catering kitchen.
Outside, the grounds are reminiscent of a theme park.
It features a vast, resort-style saltwater pool with a grotto, spa, slide, and a swim-up hibachi grill and bar.
Additionally, there’s a zipline and a sports court for those seeking adventure and athleticism.
Damon, a former outfielder for the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox, stated his intention to sell the property is to travel more with his wife, now that their six children are grown.
Since retiring in 2012, Damon has appeared in reality TV shows, including Bravo’s Below Deck and Dancing With the Stars.
