Retired San Diego Padres pitcher Trevor Hoffman will be extending his reputation as a closer, this time off the field. The beloved reliever’s acre-and-a-half spread in Rancho Santa Fe—listed for $3.75 million—has just gone into escrow.
The Hall of Famer bought the property for $2,685,000 in 2002, right in the middle of his stellar 16-season stint with the Padres. He retired after the 2010 season, and now serves in the Padres organization as a senior adviser for baseball operations.
It’s likely he’ll be finding another property in the San Diego area once he tosses the keys to this 8,295-square-foot home to the new owner. Hoffman and his family had plenty of room in this six-bedroom, seven-bathroom home, with luxury amenities like a luxe home gym, a custom wine cellar, a theater/media room, and a billiard-room with a built-in bar.
It’s the outdoor recreational facilities that truly make this home an MVP. In addition to a fully equipped barbecue area, rolling green lawns, a pool with a rockslide and spa, fire pit, and tennis court, there’s a batting cage.
And there is plenty of lovely patio and terrace area from which to simply soak in the views and the sun.
Overnight guests will have a comfortable stay: The property offers separate guest quarters, with a separate entry and kitchenette on the second floor.
If you feel like leaving the friendly confines of home, the estate is located within the gated community known as Fairbanks Ranch. The community offers an elegant clubhouse, a private lake with fishing, five tennis courts, a private park, walking trails, and equestrian center.
A seven-time All-Star, Hoffman pitched in the big leagues for 18 years and never started a game. Appearing in over 1,000 contests, he wound up with 601 saves—the second-best total in MLB history. He was inducted into the Baseball of Hall of Fame in 2018.
