Hot Property: Bret Saberhagen puts Calabasas compound on the market at $3.25 million

October 21, 2009 | 11:00 am


Former major league pitcher Bret Saberhagen has listed his gated Calabasas home for sale at $3.25 million.

The renovated and rebuilt compound includes a 5,600-square-foot, single-story Tuscan-style villa and two guesthouses. The main house has a home theater with a 90-inch screen and eight recliners, a wine cellar that can seat 12, five bedroom suites and six bathrooms. Outdoors there is a cabana with a fireplace and flat-screen television, a swimming pool with spa, a wet bar and a putting green.

Saberhagen, a two-time Cy Young Award winner, grew up in the San Fernando Valley and went to high school in Reseda. He went on to play for the Kansas City Royals, the New York Mets and the Boston Red Sox. Among his many awards, he was named American League Pitcher of the Year in 1985 and 1989.

“I moved back in 2002 after I finished my baseball career,” said Saberhagen, who plans to stay in California but would like to move closer to the ocean.

His compound is about a 10-minute drive from the beach and the freeway, he said, and sits on a long dead-end street with no street lights. “So you always have plenty of stars and moon at night.”

The home, originally built in 1969, has mountain views and room for stables and horses.

“I also love to entertain,” said Saberhagen, whose in-home sports bar is equipped with five TVs.
Saberhagen, 45, was inducted into the Kansas City Royals Hall of Fame in 2005. Today, he runs the Bret Saberhagen Make a Difference Foundation, which benefits children with diabetes and debilitating diseases.
