It seems Mike Trout is planning to stay with the Los Angeles Angels for quite some time. The star center fielder, who six months ago signed a monumental 12-year contract with the Angels valued at $426 million, just locked down a mansion in Newport Beach. Sitting just 30 minutes away from the Angels baseball stadium (traffic allowing of course), the home cost Trout a cool $9.15 million.
The 1982-built spread was renovated extensively by its previous owner, who bought the home in 2016 for just $4.225 million. Trout’s transactions secured him a .39 acre lot occupied by what now stands as a not-so-humble 9,000-square-foot, 6-bedroom, 6-bathroom abode. An impeccable white foyer, with intricate paneling, clean hardwood floors, and a grand staircase protected by a wrought-iron bannister, introduces the home’s theme of elegance slightly overstated; a sweeping formal living room with exposed beams and a fireplace you could walk into, a coffered ceiling-topped dining room, and a vast gourmet kitchen all continue this distinct aesthetic.
Each of the latter two rooms offers access to a sumptuous deck via French doors, so you can take in sweeping vistas whether you're inside or out. The ocean, iconic Newport harbor, and Palos Verdes are all within view. Gigi Thomas of Compass had the listing
