With the privacy of two swimming pools, a large home gym and a custom wine cellar, one luxury Fort Myers home just hit the market and truly boasts ‘major league’ appeal. The property currently belongs to former MLB pitcher Derek Lowe and his wife, but just went up for sale priced at $4.5 million.
The home includes five-bedrooms, six full baths and another two half baths, all enclosed in more than 8,100 square feet of living space. Uniquely designed with wood flooring, antique doors and wood beamed ceilings, the home is also accented by the modern appeal of granite countertops and stainless steel appliances.
Additional comforts of the large home include a home theater with tiered seating, a large outdoor basketball court and a custom bar. There’s also a home gym that measures more than 1,000 square feet alone and impressive views of the nearby golf course, pond and a wooded area. Constructed in 2008, the two-story home additionally includes room for a courtyard, outdoor kitchen and fireplace and spectacular attention to detail.
Located within the coveted Terabella neighborhood of Renaissance, the home is one of just a few hundred homes found within the 500-acre grounds of the landscaped community. While the couple’s exclusive golf membership does not transfer with the sale of the house, Renaissance does feature a championship golf course with limited, exclusive membership opportunities.
There’s also an on-site fitness center, tennis program and full spa. The club additionally provides numerous on-site dining options.
Lowe played with the Boston Red Sox for eight seasons, helping to win the World Series in 2004. He also played for a number of other major league teams during his career. As an added bonus for prospective buyers, the home is within just a few minutes of the spring training facilities for both the Boston Red Sox and the Minnesota Twins.
