'Big Unit' Randy Johnson selling big Arizona estate
The retired MLB strikeout king's 25,000-square-foot home features a fitness facility, 'pet suite,' eight-car motor court and more.
Located on a tiered, 5-acre parcel in Paradise Valley, Arizona, the main residence has seven bedrooms and 12 bathrooms. There’s also a detached guesthouse and commercial-grade fitness facility.
"This is a very thoughtfully designed estate," said listing agent Robert Joffe of Berkshire Hathaway's The Joffe Group. "The layout works and feels comfortable, without being overwhelming. The craftsmanship is impeccable, and the finish materials are some of the finest I've ever seen."
The main level has a massive Cantera stone fireplace, soaring 24-foot-high ceilings and a temperature-controlled wine cellar.
The east wing shows off ornate wood-paneled walls; a study lounge; oversized, eight-car motor court; billiards parlor; and a dedicated "pet suite."
The west wing offers a more secluded master retreat with his-and-hers oversized vanities, a jetted tub and multi-nozzle steam shower.
The lower level of the home has a movie theater with a working ticket booth and fully stocked snack bar.
But perhaps the holy grail of this baseball legend's estate is the 1,746-square-foot custom-designed workout facility. The space is filled with commercial-grade fitness equipment, showers and a locker room. It also provides direct access to tennis and sport courts on the property.
Johnson, a retired Major League Baseball pitcher known for his fastball, is being considered for the Baseball Hall of Fame. During his career, the left-hander struck out 4,875 batters and posted 303 victories.
