Yankee Legend Mariano Rivera Pitches Rye Mansion onto the Market
Seven years after leaving Yankee Stadium, the Sandman is exiting another place he loves. Mariano Rivera, the best closer in the history of the MLB, is selling his 13,050-square-foot Westchester County home. The former Yankee pitcher and his wife’s children are all grown up, and they no longer need such to call such an expansive abode home. Located in Rye, an easy train ride from the Bronx, the grand residence asks $3.995 million.
Across the many impressive rooms, Rivera’s favorite spot to entertain lies unsurprisingly in the sports bar. Tucked away off the family room, it’s a warm, wood-paneled space. A great place to host family, friends, and, of course, teammates. However, that’s far from where the home’s perks end.
The Colonial-style mansion sits on just over an acre of lush land on a quiet cul-de-sac. It has 9 bedrooms, most with an ensuite and boasting dimensions worthy of a master. The home embraces formal elegance as a whole, opening with a foyer holding regal twin staircases and crowned with an ornate chandelier. From the gracious living areas to the pool deck outside to the game room, it’s brimming with spaces meant for fun. The retired pro athlete especially loves the open kitchen, home theater, and, naturally, the home gym.
Known for his superior closing abilities, will the Hall of Famer carry that finesse into his real estate dealings? Only time will tell. Heather Harrison of Compass has the listing.
