The MLB catcher Russell Martin wants to toss his Scottsdale, AZ, home to a new owner. The desert retreat is on the market for $2,995,000.
The Canadian-born player purchased the property in 2010 for $850,000, and his sleek space is a home run.
Originally built in 1960, but completely reimagined since, the 4,671-square-foot remodeled contemporary features seamless indoor-outdoor living, four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a resortlike backyard.
The interior features walls of glass, high ceilings, and blends the al fresco living spaces, allowing an extension of the indoor space outside.
Inside, the open plan includes an immaculate kitchen that looks out to the dining area. The layout also features multiple sitting areas and a wet bar for easy entertaining.
The master suite includes a wall of glass and access outside.
Set on an acre, the outdoor space encompasses a wraparound covered patio with an outdoor bar and built-in barbecue. Steps down from the deck, a lounge area is centered around a fire pit.
The outdoor space also offers a pool and spa. For more active workouts, the home currently sports a basketball court. A ball player could get in swings with the full-sized, professional batting cage set up on the lawn.
The back of the house offers an idyllic setting for social gatherings, or a place to relax and take in the mountain views.
While the ballplayer appears to be moving on from his Arizona abode, he still has a home base in Florida. His waterfront spread in Dunedin Isles, FL, features a main house, guesthouse, new dock and two boatlifts, pool, and waterfront porches.
Martin purchased the coastal compound in the Sunshine State for $2.6 million in 2015. He recently posted a photo from the deck striking a yoga pose.
Now 38, the veteran catcher, who most recently played for the Los Angeles Dodgers, has also suited up for the New York Yankees, the Toronto Blue Jays, and Pittsburgh Pirates.
Over his 14-year career in the big leagues, he’s earned All-Star status four times, and received both the Gold Glove and the Silver Slugger award.
According to reports, Martin, who didn’t join up with a team for the condensed season in 2020, is “keeping open the possibility of playing in the future.”
Yolanda Smith with Keller Williams Arizona Realty has the listing.
