BELLEAIR, FLA. (MO.Properties) – Engel & Völkers Florida today announced Kristin Hallamek, an advisor with Engel & Völkers Belleair has obtained the listing of Minnesota Twins third baseman, Josh Donaldson’s Tampa home. On the market for $3,499,000, 4931 W. San Rafael Street is a waterfront home in the Sunset Park neighborhood of South Tampa.
“The custom-built home embodies luxury coastal lying,” said Hallamek. “Using Engel & Völkers cutting edge systems and tools, I have developed a highly customized, comprehensive and innovative marketing plan to find the right buyer.”
The 5,539 square feet mansion offers five-bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms, home office, bonus/game room, wine cellar and a three-car finished garage. The main floor features an open concept with multiple floor to ceiling windows, expansive beamed ceilings with inlaid rich wood accents, grand spiral staircase and living area with a gas fireplace and formal dining room. Off the living area, there’s a gourmet kitchen with a large island, hidden walk-in pantry, Thermador stainless steel appliances and a wet bar with a wine refrigerator.
The home is situated a 9,147 square feet lot near the end of a deep water canal leading to the Old Tampa Bay. A multi-level backyard offers waterfront views from the heated saltwater pool and spa. An outdoor kitchen with a built-in grill, sink and refrigerator allows for endless entertaining opportunities. Additional amenities include wind rated windows and doors, electric blinds and curtains throughout, hardscape lighting, paver circular drive, and a smartphone-controlled alarm and security system.
“Kristin is a seasoned real estate agent, Tampa Bay native and our long-time property manager,” said Donaldson. “I am confident that no one knows this home, location and market better than she does. The global backing and reach of Engel & Völkers was an important contributing factor in my decision to list with Kristin as well.”
Donaldson is an American professional baseball third baseman for the Minnesota Twins of Major League Baseball. He previously played for Oakland Athletics, Toronto Blue Jays, Cleveland Indians, and Atlanta Braves. Donaldson originally purchased 4931 W. San Rafael Street to be closer to the Toronto Blue Jays Spring Training Headquarters, TD Ballpark in Dunedin, FL while he was on the team. He was voted the American League’s Most Valuable Player for the 2015 MLB season and was named as a starter to the 2015 MLB All-Star Game, earning the most fan votes obtained by a player in the process. Donaldson also won the Silver Slugger Award and led the American League in runs batted in and runs scored.
Tampa home values have gone up more than five-percent over the last year. The median price of homes currently listed in Tampa is $314,900; 4931 W. San Rafael Street is nearly 12 times that figure.
