Just a few weeks before baseball season was supposed to begin, Washington Nationals shortstop Trea Turner snared a brand-new home in Palm Beach Gardens, FL.
The 26-year-old Florida native grew up in Lake Worth, which is about 20 miles south of the nearly 6,000-square-foot property he owns. His purchase also makes sense—the Nats spring training complex is in nearby West Palm Beach.
Turner paid $3.25 million for the home, which was listed for $3,475,000.
Built last year, the five-bedroom residence sits on a 1.3-acre lot with mature trees and lush landscaping. If Turner and wife Kristen like to entertain, this home is a dream. Features include a media room, a kitchen equipped with Miele appliances and white lacquered cabinetry, and an open layout.
The formal dining area—with a glass-enclosed wine cellar—and a spacious living room are marked by a contemporary, see-through fireplace. A built-in desk adjacent to the kitchen is perfect for a home cook to store cookbooks or peruse recipes online.
The home is well-equipped with two custom closets. Connected to the master bedroom is a master bath with a soaking tub, white marble flooring, and tiled walk-in shower.
The remaining four bedrooms feature en-suite baths, ideal for hosting overnight guests. A three-car garage also helps accommodate visitors. The home’s design also includes a laundry room with a sink and ample cabinetry.
Taking full advantage of Florida’s sunny climate, a 1,000-square-foot covered loggia is appointed with a kitchen, phantom screens, fireplace, and TV. The sleek pool is bordered with slatelike tiles, to match the hot tub.
Turner broke into the MLB in 2015 and finished second in the Rookie of the Year voting in 2016. He helped lead the Nationals to their first-ever World Series title last fall. In January, he signed a one-year contract for $7,450,000, according to USA Today.
