In late 2013, an older home on an oversized lot was purchased for $435,000. It was demolished in favor of this modern twist on a Craftsman-style home completed in 2016.

The spec build went on the market for $1.5 million in February 2016, and was snapped up by the slugging infielder within a week at that price.
