An auction for Vin Scully's Hidden Hills home quickly sold for $14 million
A local couple has purchased the longtime Hidden Hills estate of the late and legendary Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully, just two months after it first appeared on the market. A quick jog away, real estate developer Cary Lefton and wife Marla have long owned a smaller Hidden Hills tennis court estate.
Home Plate, affectionately called "Home Plate," was originally listed for $15 million, but went to the Leftons for $14 million. In spring 2009, the legendary Dodgers icon, who died in April at age 94, paid $1.6 million for the property.
He lived in the guard-gated Hidden Hills community for most of his life, and was known simply as "Vinny" to his closest neighbors. During their frequent walks through the area, the New York native and his wife Sandi, who passed away in 2021, were often seen together.
According to Rich Report, the two-story main house and detached guesthouse in this French country-style residence built in 2003 encompass nearly 2 acres in Ashley Ridge, and it offers seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms - a total of 11,600 square feet. Furthermore, there are six garage bays flanked by a spacious cobblestone motorcourt, which can accommodate up to six cars.
As well as the formal dining room, there is a red fireside living room with vaulted ceilings, a marble-clad wet bar, a wood-paneled library, and a marble-clad wet bar. The upstairs master retreat includes a private terrace and a wet bar adjacent to the gourmet kitchen, which has dual islands, stainless appliances, and a walk-in pantry.
In the resort-style backyard, there is a tennis court, putting green, a freeform pool and spa with waterfall feature, a kitchen and bar, as well as plenty of seating for entertaining and lounging. Additionally, an outdoor movie theater and wine cellar are available.
