Celebrity Real Estate
Someone is going to score a home run with this Austin abode. Former MLB player Jeff Kent has listed his Lake Travis mansion for $3.1 million, and there are plenty of perks.
The house is an absolute stunner — complete with batting cage fit for a pro — but the biggest hit is the private water park, which features a crazy Schlitterbahn-designed waterslide.
“[The pool] has multiple areas, multiple levels, including a swim-up bar, water features, vanishing edge, catch pools, caves, and a spa. The slide is extraordinary,” listing agent Joni Langle tells Realtor.com.
Located at 12006 Pleasant Panorama View, the 8,794-square-foot home sits on almost a full acre. Inside the two-story abode are six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and two half baths. The design leans towards ranch-style with plenty of warm features and exposed wood accents.
One of the best rooms in the house is the kitchen, a gourmet space with a breakfast bar, granite and marble countertops, and up-to-date appliances. Rivaling the beauty of the dining area is the master bath, which features a jetted tub and a walk-in shower.
Other highlights of the home include an entertainment room, a gorgeous study, and a casita for guests. The six-car garage houses the batting cage, which we should mention has enough room for an RV or boat.
Relatively secluded, the home is only minutes away from the Hill Country Galleria — should you ever want to leave. This property is listed with Joni Langle of XL Highlands Realty LLC.
