Former Phillies Player Jimmy Rollins Is Selling His South Jersey Mansion
If you ever wanted to live like a professional baseball player, this might be your chance.
Jimmy Rollins, who played for the Phillies from 2000 to 2014 before moving onto the Dodgers and the White Sox, is putting his South Jersey mansion up for sale.
Located in Swedesboro, Gloucester County, NJ.com reports the 5,300-square-foot home sits on a little more than two acres and features five bedrooms, closets you have "only dreamed of," three and a half baths, a beautiful pool with a waterfall, a hot tub, garage space for five cars, and more.
If you were to buy the home, the listing describes what you would see as you pull into the driveway after a long day's work...
As you pull up to this home your eye is drawn to the amazing brick facade with impeccable professional landscaping. Enter into the dramatic entry featuring a 2 story foyer with marble flooring and a beautiful staircase. Looking straight ahead your eye is immediately drawn to the wall of windows surrounding the gas burning fireplace in the two story family room. Elegantly appointed architectural details throughout exemplify the care and attention that the current owners have placed into the construction of this home.
The asking price is $799,000 -- which is what Rollins paid for the home when he bought it in 2005.
