And Realtor.com’s comment:
It’s the estate of MLB great Cal Ripken Jr.! The 24-acre spread comes with all the standard pro athlete attributes: a huge movie theater, a gigantic home gym, and a private pond on the grounds. What sets it apart from a garden-variety pro ballplayer mansion? Well, the full-size baseball diamond out back, of course. If you want to take grounders on your own private infield with a tie to a Hall of Famer, look no further.
Property taxes are only $15,000 a month.
