Wanna buy Andy Van Slyke’s house?

Van Slyke House

I’d stay away from this one, people. You know what’s gonna happen: Van Slyke unloads it on you after years of appreciating values and then you’re stuck with 20 straight years of decline!

Located in Ladue, a suburb found roughly 15 minutes west of Busch Stadium, home of the St. Louis Cardinals, the Van Slyke’s Tuscan-style estate offers 6 bedrooms, 9 baths and a total of 6,361 square feet. The home was designed by Dick Bush and built by St. Albans construction in 2002, and features three levels. A master suite with a sitting room, cook’s kitchen and an office highlight the first floor accommodations, while the second story features four bedroom suites. The bulk of the home’s amenities are, however, found on the finished lower level, where one will find a wood-paneled family room with a bar, exercise room, home theater and the aforementioned batting cage. Last, but certainly not least, Van Slyke’s luxe abode rounds out with a large patio area and a pool.

There could be a trade situation here, yes? Last week we posted about Jim Edmonds selling his Orange County home presumably because he’s moving to St. Louis for his broadcasting career. Van Slyke has a son who plays in the Dodgers organization, so maybe he’s going to L.A.?  Edmonds house for Van Slyke house! WHO SAYS NO?

    I’m only taking it if that floral couch in the basement is included.

    I’ve been to Tuscan, Arizona, and this isn’t the Tuscan style at all.

    The only thing I took from this post was that the house was designed by a guy named “Dick Bush” Really?
    You think Van Slye was just screwing with the realitor when he listed this thing? Dick Bush! Who built it? Ben Dover?

      Maybe you shouldn’t leave a stupid comment If you don’t know anything about sports, especially baseball. Andy Van Slyke was one of the great center fielder s of all time. Van Slyke went on the field everyday and played with no regards of his well being, played every inning at full speed and made spectacular catches it seemed every game. And then someone like you leaves a comment like that.

    People buying a 6000 SF house should realize that the ordinary person can’t afford to buy it when the time comes to move.

    I love these features on ballplayers houses. We have something similar out here in SF:

    “Wanna buy Larry Ellison’s house in XXX?” There’s always one for sale somewhere.

    Howabout Andy Bush and Dick Van Slyke? That would be way better.

    And a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down…

    What, .. only a two car garage? Piker!

    Is it too cynical of me to point out that Ladue to Busch Stadium is 15 minutes only if the roads are literally empty?
