Yankees Great Mariano Rivera Finally Parts Ways with Westchester County Mansion

Former New York Yankees player, the first unanimous Baseball Hall of Famer, Mariano Rivera just sold his Rye mansion for $3.783 million. It’s not surprising that Rivera, who is the best closer in MLB history, closed on his Rye mansion–even though current Yankee star Clay Holmes just broke Rivera’s streak of 29 scoreless appearances. However, it did take a couple of years for the “Sandman” to make the deal.

Rivera and his wife first pitched the 13,050-square-foot home onto the market in November of 2020, looking to downsize since their children are fully grown and there was no longer a need for a home with nine bedrooms and eight-and-a-half bathrooms. The buyer, who had been renting the house for $19,000 per month, decided to purchase the home after another prospective buyer made an offer, according to The Real Deal. The house was a steal compared to the $5.7 million Rivera paid in 2006 for the newly-built residence.   

The regal residence, exuding richness in its materials and details, sits on 1.2 acres of land at the end of a quiet Westchester County cul-de-sac. It also has major entertaining possibilities for family, friends, or even perhaps a team dinner. Inside, the home boasts its own movie theater, game room, and sports bar. For the more athletic residents, a home gym and a basketball court should do the trick. The pool is no doubt an all-around people pleaser. 

Although the couple sold the home, Rivera and his wife are not planning on retiring from the area. But, we’ll have to wait to see where they make their home base next. Heather Harrison of Compass held the listing, while Kevin Maller repped the buyer.
