Hot Property: Lenny Dykstra's Thousand Oaks estate in default

Dykstra home 

The estate of former New York Met and Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Lenny Dykstra has been showing up on the Multiple Listing Service's pre-foreclosure activity report for the last several weeks. The blog posted an item on it in mid-April.

The Richard Landry-designed home is listed for sale at $25 million, having been priced as low as $16.5 million in December. It has been on the market for about a year. Public records show the baseball player purchased it for $18.5 million in August 2007. Ouch.

The seven-acre compound in Thousand Oaks is gated and has views of the Lake Sherwood community and the country club facilities.

Hat tip: Pete in Mar Vista.
