The former MLB All-Star Kenny Rogers has tossed his handsome home in Texas onto the market. The European-style chateau in Westlake, TX, is now available for $12.9 million.
The baseball star is now retired, and in 2014, his country estate came on the market for $14,697,000. When offered seven years ago, the property was being sold with 24 acres,
It is still in search of a buyer years later, and the offering has now been shaved down to 9 acres, with a lower price point.
No matter how much attached acreage it has, the former ball player’s spread is still quite a catch.
Built in 2004 by Richard Drummond Davis, the “meticulously crafted” stone and wood structure features 12,316 square feet, with five bedrooms, six bathrooms, and four half-bathrooms. The gated, French-style estate boasts vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, detailed moldings, nine wood-burning fireplaces with elaborate mantels, and numerous built-ins.
Its European-inspired decor accents include eye-catching chandeliers, dark mahogany accents, and a mix of marble, stone, and wood flooring. Walls of arched windows and doors open out to multiple terraces.
The floor plan includes formal living and dining rooms, game and media rooms, and an elevator. A large, gourmet kitchen with dual islands, beamed ceiling, and farmhouse sink features a breakfast bar, walk-in pantry, and wine fridge. The space adjoins a glassed-in breakfast room with a fireplace and table.
The layout also features an elaborate, wood-paneled library/study with built-ins and tray ceiling, a tiered home theater, and a solarium. A large master suite offers a fireplace, sitting area, and balcony. The en suite bathroom also comes with a custom walk-in closet.
Outside, the lavish grounds come with a large pond, private gardens and courtyards, a pool, and a cabana.
An outdoor entertainment area, with a barbecue grill and outdoor living space and fire pit, overlooks green hills and meadows dotted with lavender. Highlights of the grounds include a guesthouse and stables. The property comes with an attached six-bay garage and motor court.
The Georgia native’s 20-year major league career spanned six different teams, including 12 seasons with the Texas Rangers. The five-time Gold Glove winner and World Series champion also notably pitched the 14th perfect game in MLB history. Rogers, 56, a four-time All Star, retired from baseball in 2008.
Lillie Young with Allie Beth Allman & Associates holds the listing.
