San Diego Padres pitcher Blake Snell has tossed his St. Petersburg, FL, home to a new owner.
The All-Star lefty was dealt to the Padres from the Tampa Bay Rays at the tail end of 2020. He’s since departed for the West Coast, and he’s moved on from his splashy, waterfront home as well. Listed for $1.4 million in late January, Snell’s abode quickly went into pending sale status.
He purchased the place in July 2019 for $875,000, while anchoring the Rays’ rotation. According to records and listing details, Snell proceeded to spend $200,000 to renovate much of the home, which was built in 1956.
The home’s highlight is clearly the outdoor space. The new owner will enjoy the brand-new pool deck and pool with custom sun shelf, in-pool lounge chairs, waterfall, multicolor pool lighting, never-used hot tub, and outdoor surround sound.
The waterfront home with views of Tampa Bay also boasts an updated interior. You enter into a 12-foot foyer that opens up to the family area, showcasing walls of glass and water views.
The well-appointed kitchen offers a natural gas cooktop, plus ample cabinetry for storage. New carpet has been installed in the home’s four bedrooms.
The 2,952-square-foot floor plan has a master bedroom with bay views, a walk-in closet with custom built-ins, and a master bathroom with dual vanities and a large shower.
Other updates include custom built-in closets in every bedroom, fresh paint, new pull-down blackout blinds, and impact glass windows.
The outdoor space is built for entertaining. A covered patio allows for lounging around the gas fire pit and outdoor TV. It’s easy to whip up a feast at the outdoor kitchen, with its bar and gas grill.
Out back, a private boat dock stores a boat or Jet Ski, and comes with a new boatlift. The three-car garage includes an extra room for a work area.
The new owner could potentially add a second story, according to the listing, and the location is convenient to downtown St. Pete and the Tampa International Airport.
Snell was selected in the first round of the 2011 MLB draft by the Tampa Bay Rays, and made his Major League debut in 2016. 2018 was his breakthrough season: He was selected to the MLB All-Star team, won the American League Cy Young Award, and led the league in wins and ERA.
