Martinez is a Seattle Mariners legend, a seven-time All-Star, and one of the best designated hitters ever to pick up a bat.
According to the Puget Sound Business Journal, Edgar’s wife, Holli Martinez, says the family is parting with the penthouse to buy a new home in the Bellevue area.
“That penthouse feels like an oasis,” Holli told the Business Journal. “It is so quiet and so private. It was truly a sanctuary for us above the city, but we were still connected to what was going on. We could take an elevator down and be in the thick of it. But we felt really protected and private there. It was a true oasis.”
Perched atop the One Lincoln Tower, the two-story penthouse is lined with walls of glass to highlight majestic mountain and lake views, in addition to the gleaming cityscape below.
Built in 2006, the residence has two bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, and more than 4,000 square feet. The unit comes outfitted with a home theater and a private suite for guests. The building offers around-the-clock concierge service and access to the fitness facility and pool.
After an 18-year career with the Seattle Mariners, Martinez waited a decade to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. This would have been his final year on the Baseball Writers’ Association ballot, after being passed over several times before.
“I think the wait, I think I’m more mature right now,” Martinez said of the honor. “I think I’ve enjoyed it more at this point with my family, the way my kids are older now and it just has a lot of meaning—even more meaning, now. The wait, actually it worked out well for me.”
Now, following his career-capping accomplishment, Martinez, along with his wife and three kids, Alex, Tessa, and Jacqueline, is ready for his next real estate chapter.
What they’re leaving behind is their elegant oasis in the sky, passing along this incredible home to another lucky owner. Perhaps a little of Martinez’s Hall of Fame swagger will stick around at this posh penthouse address.
