After owning a Scottsdale, AZ, mansion since 2016, San Francisco Giants infielder Brandon Crawford is letting it go for $1.5 million.
It’s not an ideal real estate play, as the star shortstop picked up the property just two years ago for $1.6 million. The estate was on the market earlier this year for $1.625 million, before having its price cut to the current number in late November.
The price slice did the trick. The home’s already in pending sale status just two weeks after the reduction. And unsurprisingly, the All-Star’s home is quite a catch.

Located in the desirable community of Rancho Santa Fe, the 5,477-square-foot layout offers five en suite bedrooms, six bathrooms, a bonus room, and den with built-in cabinets. The kitchen has been upgraded with stone slab counters and stainless-steel appliances, and opens to the family room.
Updates include new interior paint, new carpet, remodeled master closets, and refinished cabinetry. The large lot features lush vegetation, a barbecue, seating areas, and a fireplace. You can work up a sweat on the sport court or in-ground trampoline, then cool off in the pool and spa.
The San Francisco Bay Area native made his debut with the Giants in 2011. Now one of the team’s veteran leaders, the 31-year-old is a two-time All-Star and two-time World Series champion.
The Gold Glove winner signed a $75 million contract in 2015 that locked him with his hometown team through 2021.
Whether or not he owns a place in Scottsdale, he’ll certainly be spending quality time in the desert city, which is the home of Giants spring training.
