A former Colorado mansion owned by Hall of Fame baseball player Larry Walker has gone on the market for $4 million
There are eight bedrooms in this estate, which covers 13,452 square feet and has spectacular views of the Rocky Mountains in the distance.
Larry Walker made history in 2020 when he became the first Rockies player to ever be added to the Baseball Hall of Fame and became the first to ever be inducted. It was reported last year that retired slugger Hank Aaron's former Colorado mountain mansion was for sale.
Walker's 1996 estate has been listed for $3.9 million and offers those stunning views we've all been waiting for. An eight-bedroom, 12-bath wilderness residence with eight bedrooms and 12 bathrooms is less than an hour's drive from Denver. Located in the secluded enclave of Evergreen, the home encompasses 12,452 square feet on roughly six-and-a-half acres.
“The previous owners of this Hall of Fame home paid special attention to the home’s exterior, mirroring what is typically only found along some of the state’s best hiking and biking trails,” according to the listing, which is handled by Delroy Gill and Stuart Crowell, both of whom are a part of LIV Sotheby’s International Realty. You really do feel as if you are stepping into a postcard-worthy park when you step outside here due to its outdoor areas. Imagine relaxing in a spacious backyard with lush, private stone patios and an expansive deck that you can use for entertaining. In the front of the building, you're greeted with a cascading waterfall feature that recalls the feeling of being on a scenic trek and encountering a waterfall somewhere along the way.
There have been many modernizations made to the manse throughout the years as it has evolved over the years. In addition to the vaulted ceilings, the home has six fireplaces, as well as brand new hardwood flooring throughout the house. The addition of some contemporary amenities to a renovation would, of course, make it less of a renovation than it already is. It provides a wine cellar, sauna, library, gym, and a home theater in addition to the wine cellar, sauna, library, gym, and home theater. Above the garage, you will also find a guest house with a total of four bedrooms.
You're immediately struck by the impressive grand staircase with its rod iron handrails when entering the main home. It is interesting to note that this staircase leads up to a lofted living room that has what is perhaps the best view of the nearby mountains if you are curious. In addition, a chef's kitchen has also been decorated with state-of-the-art appliances, including two ovens, three stovetop ranges and a gigantic refrigerator that are all state-of-the-art appliances. The center of the space is anchored by a large island that takes up the majority of the space. There is also a game room in the basement of the house, complete with its own billiards table and bar, that has been converted into the ultimate game room.
