Wanna buy Felix Hernandez’s house?



It’s pretty sweet, as most ballplayers’ houses are. Yet nowhere near as large and ostentatious as a lot of ballplayers’ houses are. The price is certainly high, but chalk that up to Seattle area real estate prices. It’s actually not SO much crazier than the sort of place, say, a lawyer or an executive of some kind might have. Crazy for you and me and most everyone else, but somewhat modest by star ballplayer standards.

And will only set you back a cool $3.8 million:

Hernandez, known as King Félix, listed his home on Northeast First Street in West Bellevue for sale on June 24, according to online real estate brokerage Redfin.com. The 10,400-square-foot home was built in 2009. It has five bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms and a large theater, and overlooks Meydenbauer Bay on Lake Washington.

He’s not going anywhere. He just got another place in another part of town.

A slide show with 11 pics of the place can be seen here.
