Wanna buy Brandon Webb’s house?

Brandon Webb House

This one is sad because it reminds us that Brandon Webb was great and then he hurt his shoulder and then he disappeared and that’s a total bummer.  But at least he pitched well enough and long enough to afford a pretty sweet house (if you’re into the Scottsdale-style architecture anyway):

Webb’s property is your standard desert dwelling, Tuscan style with a beige color palette and stone façade. Built in 2004, the energy-efficient house offers a total of six bedrooms, six bathrooms and nearly 6,500 square feet. Interior highlights include custom hardwood cabinetry, granite countertops and a palatial master with a jetted spa. It also sports a finished basement with guest quarters, a climate-controlled wine cellar and wet bar, and a movie theater. Outside, Webb’s backyard rounds out with a pool and spa setup that has both a waterfall and a water slide.

Go through the pics and check out the baby’s room. Baseball stitching wallpaper that I’m totally getting for the den in my fortified compound.

    I’m not really into architecture per se, but I always enjoy these posts.

    I’d love a movie theatre in my house, but would definitely leave the faux popcorn and movie reels out of the decorum.

    Craig, is there a “celebrity house for sale” website you subscribe to or something like that? :-)

    It is fun to see housing that most of us will never be able to afford. Every time I see these posts, I find it hard to believe that people actually live in places like this.

    • josemartez - Sep 6, 2013 at 11:52 AM

      Yeah, I feel the same way. “Well, I can afford six bathrooms, so I might as well get six bathrooms. I’ll also slather everything in granite.”

        Or nine living room furniture sets scattered throughout the house, all facing TVs.

        How many TV rooms do you need?

    and it’s actually lived in, not one of these ‘styled for sale’ places – real-life things on shelves & boxes of crap in the dining room – so I guess he’s a bit like us normal folk?

    Did I just miss it, or is the asking price not noted anywhere?

    • tmohr - Sep 6, 2013 at 12:29 PM

      It’s listed at $1.595M after he bought it for $1.75M in 2005. Shows you how the market has collapsed.

      Not my cup of tea, but that’s a lot more house than you can get here in suburban Chicago for that price.

    Yep, love these posts. I especially like how they come from all over the country, so you can see how the players live(d) in different regions.

    My favorite is still Zito’s place in Marin.

      Craig did a post on Joe Morgan’s house a while back, but the link is no longer working so I’m guessing it was sold. That place was a train wreck, depending on how you looked at it.

      • tfbuckfutter - Sep 6, 2013 at 1:58 PM

        No matter how hard you scrubbed that place, you just couldn’t get rid of all the grit.

    “(if you’re into the Scottsdale-style architecture anyway)”

    Just to clear things up here. This mansion is not really a “Scottsdale-style architecture”. A lot of houses in the valley actually look like this, especially the new ones. It doesn’t matter if it’s a six bed/six bath or three bed/two bath. This type of architecture is pretty normal in Arizona.

    I was going to say the kitchen here is laid out better than the last house, but then I saw that the microwave is on the wall next to the fridge, nowhere near a counter, and far from the stove or utensils and things — so no, this kitchen needs help too. Booo!

    Also, what’s with the pasty house color. I hate that so many houses in the southwest are painted beige. You could go a little more exciting. Yuck.

  10. hildezero - Sep 6, 2013 at 4:12 PM

    Beige IS exciting. Besides, it matches the southwest theme, knucklehead.

    • historiophiliac - Sep 6, 2013 at 5:34 PM

      Beige is definite NOT exciting and other colors match the theme too, bonehead.
