Mookie Betts is up to bat in the San Fernando Valley, where he’s praying for a home run-worthy deal. The Dodgers outfielder and all-around MLB superstar is requesting $10 million for his Encino mansion, which he bought in fall 2020 for $7.6 million from UCLA Bruins head coach Chip Kelly. Since then, Betts has added some very custom upgrades worthy of a six-time Gold Glove winner.
Tucked securely behind gates and high hedges, the luxury property features a substantial motorcourt with space for multiple cars, and the home’s front door is also flanked by a pair of two-car garages. Inside, the two-story foyer and delicately curved staircase are guaranteed to impress guests, and there are hardwood floors throughout.
On the main level, the chef’s kitchen features waterfall quartz countertops and top-of-the-line Wolf and SubZero appliances. A breakfast room connects the kitchen to the family room, which flaunts a coffered ceiling, fireplace and direct access to the backyard. Also on tap are a walk-in pantry, movie theater and two guest bedrooms, both with ensuite bathrooms and best suited for live-in staff members, per the listing.
Upstairs, the master suite is kitted out with dual bathrooms and dual closets, plus a private nook that could be an office or nursery. There are four additional bedrooms located on this level, and the house also offers dual laundry rooms — one on the main floor, one upstairs.
The half-acre lot is perfectly flat and a private resort unto itself. Out back, AstroTurf putting greens are joined by a full outdoor kitchen and cabana; the zero edge swimming pool includes both an inset spa and sunken “conversation pit” of sorts, complete with a fire-pit and built-in banquette seating. Across a concrete patio from the pool stands a two-story guesthouse, complete with two more bedrooms and two full bathrooms.
But perhaps the property’s most unusual feature is one recently installed by Betts himself. At the far rear of the lot, where a more traditional sports court once stood, a warehouse-like building hosts a gym and indoor basketball court branded with “MB” initials.
Born and raised in Nashville, Betts is reportedly a distant cousin of Meghan Markle. The 30-year-old and wife Brianna Hammonds have lived primarily in Los Angeles since summer 2020, when he signed a $365 million contract extension with the Dodgers.
