Raul Ibanez's old house makes me want to move to Washington

Former Phillies outfielder Raul Ibanez lives in my dream home. All I have to do is come up with the $4.4 million dollars it takes to live there.

In a summer which has seen fellow Phillies Cole Hamels and Jimmy Rollins put homes up for sale, Ibanez’s Washington state pad may be the nicest of them all.

Located in the city of Issaquah, 17 miles outside of Seattle where he spent the bulk of his 19-year Major League career, the house has six bedrooms and eight bathrooms in total and spans 7,700 feet across five acres. However, it’s what’s on the inside that counts with this house.

Originally purchased in 2010 for $2.8 million, when he was a member of the Phillies, Ibanez has put significant work into the spot.

First and foremost, the recreation space in this house is incredible. In what appears to be a completely separate structure, the gym is two floors and includes a basketball court, batting cages and an area to lift weights. There’s also tons of space in the backyard with a beautiful fire pit for entertaining.

Raul and his wife Teryvette have five children and a few of the rooms are displayed in the listing. His youngest, Luca, has an awesome racecar bed, while another room, has a rock climbing wall.

The interior is both elegant and modern and has ample space for entertaining, including what looks like a movie theater and a pool with a fireplace and a baseball at the bottom.

The house is now listed as off market, so there may be a new owner of this incredible piece of real estate.
