MLB legend Chili Davis’ one-of-a-kind estate in Arizona hits the market for $8.5 million

Some athletes buy mega-mansions; others simply build their own. Case in point: MLB legend Chili Davis’ custom Arizona domain, which just hit the market.

Completed in 2000, the modern desert home sits on three acres atop Mummy Mountain and offers truly breathtaking views of Paradise Valley. In total, it spans 9,395 square feet with five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a freestanding casita for guests, and a four-car garage. Inside, expect to find a few nods to the former player’s sporting past, including a marble-shaped foyer. And if you have $8.5 million in the bank, it’s quite possible that Davis’ dream house could become your new reality.

“The home was custom built for baseball legend, Chili Davis, who had an incredible vision brought to life by Salcito Custom Homes,” says Frank Aazami of Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty. “This masterpiece property offers some of the most stunning views of the valley I have ever seen and comes with luxurious amenities and stunning architecture.”

Underscoring Aazami’s point, the property features large walls of glass, high beamed ceilings, and pocket doors throughout, giving the home an intimate yet dramatic feel. On the main level, you’ll find a stone “trophy wall” where the three-time All-Star used to store his memorabilia.

The large room is decorated with a billiard area and a bar

It also offers a chef’s kitchen with a large central island and a billiard area that spills into the open concept living and dining areas. Downstairs, the home theater has been designed to look like an exact replica of South Beach with a 3D Art Deco skyline lining the walls.

The real draw, however, is the gigantic balcony that spans the edge of Mummy Mountain. From here you can descend to another outdoor patio on the first level which has an outdoor kitchen and an infinity pool. And with the dry heat, you’ll definitely need it.
