The former Tampa Bay Rays outfielder, who left the team for the Atlanta Braves, is now cutting some more ties to the bay area. According to Realtor.com, B.J. has listed the Davis Islands Mediterranean-style home for $1.6 million.
The home, which was built in 2003, has five bedrooms and bathrooms. And for the entertainers looking for a nice place to host their BBQ's & various gatherings, you'll find a custom wine cellar, media room and gourmet kitchen... as well as a resort style pool & spa with a poolside kitchen & Tiki wet bar.
The two-story home boasts a wrought-iron staircase in the foyer, vaulted ceilings and wood flooring throughout.
Here’s a much glossier description from Realtor.com:
"When the backdrop is sought after and idyllic Davis Islands, a Mediterranean styled residence integrating stunning open interior and exterior spaces provides a perfect entertaining lifestyle or a peaceful escape. Built in 2003 with an eye toward showcasing quality interior touches such as the exquisite wood floors, custom wine cellar, media room, and chef’s kitchen, a wonderful resort style pool, spa and enhanced poolside kitchen make solitude a dream and entertaining guests a pleasure."
It would probably be fun to take a tour of the place, just for laughs, so you can tell friends you hung out in B.J. Upton’s wine cellar.
