Former Major Leaguer Brian Giles has relisted his home in San Diego, the city where he spent seven seasons as a Padre.
The two-time All-Star swung for the fences in 2015, offering up the home for $6.495 million, but couldn't find a buyer, records show. He's now asking $6.195 million.
Palm trees frame the entrance to the mansion, which sits at the center of a 1.39-acre lot in the Rancho Pacifica community.
The Mediterranean-style estate, designed by John Jenson and built by Greg Agee, fits nine bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a theater room, billiards room and wine cellar into a single story spanning 11,758 square feet. Other highlights include a large island in the chef's kitchen. The great room is anchored by a stone fireplace.
Beamed ceilings, arched doorways, wood finishes and crown molding accent the living spaces. Travertine lines the floors.
A spa-like bathroom under a chandelier is attached to the master suite, which also sports a walk-in closet and stone fireplace. A guest house adds a pair of bedrooms and bathrooms.
Outside, a brick patio holds a lagoon-style pool and spa with a water slide. Other amenities, such as a sitting area, outdoor kitchen and lawn, offer plenty of space to enjoy the mountain views.
Giles bought the home for $7.9 million in 2006, records show. It was built two years earlier.
Michael Koeneke of Nest Seekers International holds the listing.
Giles, 47, played for the Indians, Pirates and Padres before retiring in 2010. The left-handed outfielder knocked in 287 home runs and 1,078 RBIs during his career.
