Former Seattle Mariners star Jay Buhner, the “Bad to the Bone” outfielder known for his signature bald head and goatee, was looking to hit a real estate home run, but maybe that is now turning into a triple. Back in November 2008, Zillow first reported that Buhner put his Seattle-area home on the market for $12 million. Today, we got wind that the property has been reduced to $9,999,999.
Buhner’s lodge-like Northwest compound sits on 80 acres and includes a long list of luxurious extras such as a guest home, horse facilities, red barn, entry gate, and pavilion. A longtime Northwest resident, the Buhner family (wife Leah + 3 kids) also formerly lived at 5411 247th Pl SE, Issaquah, WA until they sold the home in 2002.
If you’re interested in some other, current Mariners’ real estate, take a look at Seattle Mariners’ superstar Ichiro Suzuki’s home located at 4409 164th Ln SE, Issaquah WA 98027. The property has been on Zillow since March 2009 and is listed for sale at $1,750,000. Quite a bargain, compared to Buhner’s!
