Former MLB All-Star Raúl Ibañez has put his Seattle-area mansion on the market for $4,498,000. This property is absolutely unbelievable with the most luxurious amenities imaginable. Raúl Ibañez’s career peaked in 2009 when he won a World Series with the Philadelphia Phillies after signing a contract worth $31.5 million. That same year he was also named to the NL All-Star team for his first and only time.
Raúl made a total of $66,298,332 as a professional baseball player. With that sort of earnings, you can afford some really nice things in life. Amongst the purchases Raúl made with his MLB career earnings was a 7,700 square foot mansion just outside of Seattle. The house sports 6 bedrooms, 7.75 bathrooms, and it is situated on a 10-acre lot.
This house is the quintessence of luxurious Northwest living. It features sprawling entertainment areas both indoors and out. There is a barn, a movie theater, batting cage, gym, basketball court, and lusciously manicured gardens. Let’s take a look at some photos of this sprawling estate:
We cover athlete real estate a lot here at The Daily Want and I can’t recall a single house that’s similar to this. Most athlete mansions can be found in Southern California or outside of New York City. Why Seattle? Well, throughout his career Raúl Ibañez was a member of the Seattle Mariners on three separate occasions. He was drafted by the Mariners in 1992, played for them in the minors, and began his MLB career with the Mariners from 1996 to 2000. After two seasons with the Royals, Ibañez went back to Seattle from 2004-2008 until he signed his major contract with the Phillies. After playing for the Phillies, Raúl spent a year with the Yankees and then another year in Seattle (2013).
These days, Raúl Ibañez is working for ESPN as a baseball analyst after the network hired him to replace the disgraced Curt Schilling. Raúl is also a baseball commentator on ESPN Deportes.
