Former Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon is unloading his large three-bedroom townhome in Chesterton, IN, located near his childhood home of Gary.

The Mariners hired the former Pittsburgh Pirates skipper to lead their team back to respectability. Fired after a disappointing 2015 season, the feisty manager lasted only two seasons in the Northwest.

McClendon's open-layout home -- listed for $324,500, with a recent price drop after five months on the market -- offers "lots of natural light," says listing agent Katie Phillips of McColly Real Estate. In the spacious great room, a wall of windows stretching from the floor to the vaulted ceiling brings in the sun and overlooks the natural wetlands behind the home.

Step into the master suite, with a built-in entertainment center and en-suite bathroom, and you'll never guess you're in a townhome.

And while the home may look small from the outside, the exterior of the 3,183-square-foot residence is deceptive. "From the front, you don't have any idea it opens up as beautifully as it does," says Phillips.
