MLB Hall of Famer Mike Piazza is selling his waterfront home for $18.5 million.
Piazza and his wife Alicia want to unload the 9,600-square-foot mansion at 1401 West 27th Street in Miami Beach, according to Coldwell Banker’s The Jills team.
The eight-bedroom Sunset Islands house sits on a 20,000-square-foot bayfront lot and includes smart home features, Jerusalem stone floors, crown molding, a library, home office, master suite with private balcony, pool and wet bar. It also features a guesthouse and 100 feet of deep-water frontage with a dock and boat lift.
Property records show the Piazzas paid $10 million for the home in 2008. It was built in 2001.
The couple is listing the Tuscan-style house because they have been spending more time in Italy, where the former star catcher owns an Italian soccer club, his wife told the Wall Street Journal.
Jill Eber and Jill Hertzberg have the listing.
Piazza, who played for the New York Mets, Los Angeles Dodgers and briefly for the then-Florida Marlins, was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2016 as a Met. He played for the Marlins for just five games in 1998 before being traded to New York.
Other retired pros to call Miami home include former Yankees star Alex Rodriguez. – Katherine Kallergis
