Cardinals Legend Chris Carpenter Selling Florida Home for $625,000 (VIDEO TOUR)
Chris Carpenter, the now-retired star pitcher for the MLB team "St. Louis Cardinals", is reportedly pitching his home for sale with a $625,000 price tag.
The Los Angeles Times reported the listing noting that Erin Duke-Warren of Keller Williams Realty is the listing agent.
News of the Florida home listing comes just two months after the Cardinals legend put his St. Lois, Mo., home for sale with an asking price of $3.65 million. That residence has been price chopped to $3.5 million since then.
Carpenter announced in November, last year that he was retiring. After a stellar 15-season career with Major league Baseball, the star pitcher declared he was calling it quits. Carpenter debuted with the Toronto Blue Jays in 1997 and played with them until 2002. After a brief period of free agency, he went on to play for the Cardinals in 2004 and won the Cy Young Award in the 2005 season.
Now that Carpenter is retired, he serves as a special assistant to the General manager of the team. While, Carpenter is settling into his new role, the star pitcher has obviously decided to lighten his real estate portfolio.
Carpenter purchased the home, located in the posh BallenIsles Country Club area of Palm Beach Gardens, in 2003 for $603,000, according to the public records.
The residence is a 3,335-square-foot single-family home, comprising of four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms.
Interiors of the house feature high trey ceilings, large glass doors and windows, marble, hardwood and stone-tiled flooring and crown moldings.
Living spaces include formal drawing and dining rooms, a great room, an office and children's playroom and much more.
Outside, there is a pool with a spa and open lounging areas. There is an open patio and a grassy yard as well. The home provides for an attached two-car garage.
