Dodgers Star Yasiel Puig Buys Encino Villa (EXCLUSIVE)

Location:
Encino, Calif.
Price:
$2.65 million
Size:
5,279 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms

Dodgers star Yasiel Puig, nicknamed the Wild Horse by legendary broadcaster Vin Scully, has splashed out $2.65 million on a gated residence in a coveted neighborhood of Encino, Calif.

The almost 5,300-square-foot home, a Mediterranean villa mixed with a Monterey colonial built in 2002 with five bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, features gleaming medium-brown hardwood throughout the main-floor living and entertaining spaces. The formal living room has a fireplace, and there are lighted built-in china cabinets in the formal dining room. A tiny butler’s pantry connects the dining room to a generously sized and expensively outfitted kitchen that’s open over a huge granite-topped center island with a snack bar to a roomy breakfast bay and family room with a fireplace, a built-in media cabinet and French doors to the yard.

There’s a guest or staff suite on the ground floor and three more family bedrooms on the second floor, one en suite and two that share a Jack ’n’ Jill bathroom, plus an oversize master suite. The suite includes a fireplace, a sitting area, French doors to a balcony with a backyard overlook and a travertine-tiled bathroom with a garden tub and a separate shower. Arranged around a large central courtyard with a fountain and an outdoor fireplace, the back of the house opens to an arched loggia with a built-in grilling station, a beverage fridge and a beer tap. Beyond the patio, a grassy backyard is ringed by colorful rose bushes and includes a free-form swimming pool and spa.

The Cuban-born right fielder, who signed a seven-year, $42 million contract with the Dodgers in 2012 when he was just 21, owns a slightly smaller house with six bedrooms and six bathrooms in the neighboring community of Sherman Oaks that he picked up in October 2104 for $1.8 million. Though the property did not sell, he had it on the market during the late summer and early fall of this year at $2.3 million.
