The following is a guest post from Elise Ramer with the Southeast region of Coldwell Banker companies.
Home is where you hang your baseball cap. Carlos Beltran, the New York Yankees outfielder, has worn his fair share of Major League Baseball team caps with many homes in different cities to hang them in. Now that Beltran is back in New York City, the town he loves, he has to part with the luxurious family estate he purchased in South Florida back in 2012. He was playing with the St. Louis Cardinals when he and his wife Jessica found the 13,316 square-foot home in the secluded neighborhood of Windmill Ranches Estates, just outside of Fort Lauderdale in suburban Weston, Florida.
The $4.5 million residence offers the finest attention to detail and craftsmanship. This builder’s custom designed masterpiece features eight bedrooms and nine and one half baths, set within a two-acre compound. Luxury features include an elevator, butler’s pantry, Mediterranean-style kitchen (plus a caterer’s kitchen), exercise and billiard room, library, loft, wine cellar, detached guest house and greenhouse. Built for the sports enthusiast, the residence also has a basketball court, putting green with sand trap and an oversize, negative edge pool with cabana. The landscaped grounds are meticulously manicured with lush tropical palms that frame the private pond and 7,000 square-foot patio with covered terrace.
“We really loved the Weston community and this home. It was our own estate, with plenty of land and privacy. This is a very family-friendly property with ample room for kids to play. The basketball court and putting green were just a few of our favorite spots on the property.”
Coldwell Banker Previews International associate, Giselle Bonetti has listed the home. No stranger to dealing with professional baseball players, Bonetti has worked with several MLB clients. She caters to the needs of the athlete and their family on a private concierge level. “We help them find a sanctuary of privacy, and will assist in coordinating every aspect of their move, from packing their belongings to hiring a nanny for their family.”
