But, according to real estate website Curbed.com...that's a cool million LESS than what you would have paid when it hit the market last year.
Things aren't so bright-eyed and bushy-tailed for Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Jamie Moyer, who has just re-injured his left elbow and whose Seattle home has been relisted at $7.8M, down from its initial Feb. 2009 ask of $8.9M. The 7,100-square-foot Tudor of the ex-Seattle Mariner, in a section of town genteelly named Magnolia, features deluxe details such as French marble flooring, vaulted ceilings, a wood-paneled dining room, an in-home theater, and an outdoor kitchen with a pizza oven. Just the granddaddy grandeur one would expect from someone who's played 24 seasons in the big leagues.
And, naturally, here's some history on the 80 year-old house courtesy of the Magnolia Voice.
The 1933 Tudor home is 7,100 square feet with marble floors, a spacious family room, home theatre, outside entertainment patio, big screen TV, pizza oven, an outdoor kitchen and pool. There are seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms and a 4 car garage. The two story house also has three fireplaces, a 1,500 bottle wine cellar and an athletic court. The Moyers originally purchased the home $2.8 million.
It's a pretty nice place if you can grab it I suppose. That said, my house has been on and off the market for the last two years. Sure, it's only a fraction (and a small one at that) of what the Moyers are asking...but still...I feel their pain.
