Angels star Mike Trout snags mansion for $9.15M


The sale arrives a few months after the eight-time All-Star inked a record-breaking $426 million contract that will keep him with the Major League Baseball team for the next 12 years.

Roughly 20 miles south of Anaheim’s Angel Stadium, the home in gated Harbor Ridge recently received a dramatic face-lift, swapping Tudor-style interiors for a more contemporary vibe. Gone are the parquet floors and stately wood panels, replaced by wide-plank hardwood and crisp white walls.

In 9,000 square feet, there are six bedrooms and eight bathrooms. A formal entry with a sweeping staircase kicks things off. Past that, there’s an expansive living room with vaulted beams, a dining room under coffered ceilings and an open-concept kitchen and family room.

Out back, a covered lanai descends to a swimming pool and spa, and according to the listing, the space also boasts a “built-in doggie bath.”

Trout, 28, joined the Angels in 2011 and has since racked up 1,304 hits and 279 home runs in addition to six Silver Slugger awards and two American League Most Valuable Player awards . His $426-million contract extension in March was the largest in North American sports history.

He made the purchase through a limited liability company, records show.
