San Francisco Giants pitcher, Barry Zito, who is now a World Series Champion as well, is selling his Bay Area Mediterranean Mansion in Kentfield CA for $11.495M. Zito is also well known for signing a 7 year $126M dollar contract with the San Francisco Giants in 2006, which at the time became the highest for any MLB pitcher in history.
Zito’s publicist Kathy Jacobson told the Huffington Post that Zito loves the house, called ‘Villa Della Pace’, especially since he was married there. It’s just that the drive over the bridge to the ballpark is becoming too much for the newly-wed, and Zito’s is hoping for a shorter commute.
The World Series Champ’s stunning Mediterranean Mansion is privately situated on 2 acres securely located behind 2 iron gates and includes 4 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, 7,116 sq-ft of living area, a guest house, and an outdoor pool that all overlooks endless panoramic views of Phoenix Lake, Mt. Tamalpais and the surrounding countryside. Zito’s home also features a massive open kitchen that flows into the family room, a resort style Master Suite with an imported limestone fireplace, doors that open to the back yard and spa, and a luxurious bathroom with a room-for-two custom stone shower, granite countertops, double sinks, and a huge walk-in closet.
Villa Della Pace also offers an office on the main level, Nano doors that open and bring indoor-outdoor flow to the home, a guest house that in addition to the main house shows off the amazing countryside views, an outdoor swimming pool and spa, barbeque, outdoor fireplace and fountain, and gardens and stone terraces throughout the private estate.
