Former Colorado Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau may not have found his 2016 team yet -- but it looks like it definitely won't be the Rockies: The team declined to pick up his option in October, and he recently listed his seven-bedroom mansion in Westminster, CO, for $1.95 million.
Morneau played 11 seasons with the Minnesota Twins before stints with the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Rockies. In the prime of his career, he won the 2008 Home Run Derby and played in four MLB All-Star games.
Like its owner, this 11,941-square-foot home hits a home run: Despite its 2008 construction, the home has old-world charm, with its tumbled brick barrel ceilings and travertine flooring interlaced with dark hardwood. Entertainers will love the brick-walled bar area, with an enormous wine cellar just steps away.
Parents, don't fret. Your kids won't be bored, even two hours deep in the most serious of wine and cheese parties. The half-acre backyard offers a veritable playground of fun and games, from an in-ground trampoline to a sandbox, slide, and tire swing. Or they could just cuddle around the fire pit for s'mores -- a perfect complement to a chilly Colorado spring evening.
