Former Dodgers shortstop Rafael Furcal has parted with his onetime home base in La Cañada Flintridge for $3.1 million.
The Mediterranean-style villa, built in 2000, features a two-story entry, a grand staircase, a step-down living room, marble and limestone floors, a study, a media room, a wine tasting room and a billiards/game room. The grounds include a swimming pool with spa, an outdoor kitchen and a built-in barbecue. The golf-course view house has six bedrooms, 11 bathrooms and 7,402 square feet of living space.
Furcal, 34, started his major league career with the Atlanta Braves in 2000 and signed with the Dodgers in 2005. He was traded last year to the St. Louis Cardinals. When not on the road, Furcal splits his time between St. Louis and Santiago in the Dominican Republic.
Public records show he bought the property in 2007 for $4.25 million.
Susan Mohr and Bradley Mohr of Sotheby's International Realty handled both sides of the transaction.
