Major League Baseball pitcher Huston Street, a former Longhorns star, is looking for a new address. The Northwest Austin mansion he owns with his wife, Lacey, is on the market for $5.4 million.

The five-bedroom estate — complete with five full bathrooms and three partial bathrooms — sits on 1-acre along Lake Austin, not far from Emma Long Metropolitan Park. Eric Moreland, a high-end Realtor in Austin, is marketing the mansion.

Among the features of the 10,198-square-foot Italian villa-inspired home, built in 2008, are two indoor fireplaces, a wine room, a media room, an outdoor fireplace and kitchen overlooking a pool, and a two-slip boat dock with a covered party deck.

A post on Realtor.com emphasizes the home’s high ceilings in the foyer, living room, family room, kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms. “The high ceilings — along with the many arches, columns, and wall finishes — help add to the grand aura of the home,” according to Realtor.com.

Although Street is selling the mansion, it appears that he, his wife and their two sons, Ripken and Ryder, will still call Austin home. “I’ve traveled everywhere,” Street told the Austin Business Journal last year, “and Austin is the only city in the world that I really love.”

Street, a standout pitcher at Westlake High School and the University of Texas at Austin, made his major league debut in 2005. He now plays for the Los Angeles Angels; previously, he pitched for the Oakland A’s, Colorado Rockies and San Diego Padres. The Padres traded Street to the Angels in 2014. He’s set to make $7 million this year.

On February 7, Street is scheduled to be the keynote speaker at the annual First Pitch Banquet for the University of Texas at San Antonio baseball team.
