When Alex Rodriguez put his Miami Beach mansion on the market, he was asking for $38 million from the sale, according to TMZ. Unfortunately for the injured Yankees star, the best he could get for the property was $30 million.
Nonetheless, Rodriguez still made a pretty penny. He bought the mansion for just $7.4 million in 2010. Over the next couple years he embarked on a remodeling adventure that ended up costing him $7.6 million, for a $15 million total investment — and a $15 million profit from the sale.
Suffice it to say, the house is pretty incredible. It contains nine bedrooms and 11 full bathrooms over nearly 20,000 square feet of space, with a four-car garage and a state-of-the-art security system too boot. Rodriguez also added some personal touches while he lived there, including a zen garden and an indoor batting cage for honing his swing.
And, oh yeah, the mansion is just down the street from actor Matt Damon.
TMZ reports that a mystery celebrity from Palm Beach has purchased the mansion, but there’s no word on who it is yet. In any case, the home has been on the market since August, so Rodriguez now has one less distraction to worry about as he rehabs from offseason hip surgery.
