Check Out The $6 Million Home Where Joe Mauer Is Spending His Retirement
Joe Mauer officially retired from the Twins Friday, and now we can take a peek at the sweet $6.2 million home on Lake Minnetonka where he'll be spending his retirement.
While most sports stars and celebrities here in Minnesota don't usually make it a habit of showing off their homes, we're able to take a look a what Joe Mauer's home on Lake Minnetonka looks like thanks to the fact that he just bought it a little over two years ago, and the home listing is still active on a couple of Twin Cities realty sites.
If you recall, Joe bought the home (WITH CASH!?!?) for $6.2 million in June of 2016. Who pays for their multi-million dollar house with cash?!? Of course, when your most recent contract with your employer was worth $184 million, as Mauer’s most recent deal with the Twins was (even if it's expired these days), paying $6 million for a house isn’t all that much, I guess.
Anyway, according to the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal, casa de Mauer is pretty big -- 6,500 square feet, with five bedrooms, seven bathrooms and an eight-stall garage. It’s located on “3.1 acres, with 115 feet of shoreline on the south side of Wayzata Bay in Woodland,” the story noted. It's a pretty nice place to spend one's retirement-- even if you're retiring when you're only 35 years old!
So, yeah. It's pretty nice. And while Joe and his wife, Maddie, may have redecorated their home since they first moved in two summers ago, you can still check out what the place looks like (or, looked like when it was for sale, anyway) HERE.
