Check Out the $6 Million Home Where Joe Mauer is Spending the Holidays
The Twins officially retired Joe Mauer's number-7 last June, but we can still take a peek at the sweet $6.2 million home on Lake Minnetonka where he'll no doubt be spending the holidays again this year.
While most sports stars and celebrities here in Minnesota don't usually make it a habit of showing off their homes, we're able to take a look a what Joe Mauer's home on Lake Minnetonka looks like thanks to the fact that he just bought it a little over three years ago, and the home listing is still active on a couple of Twin Cities realty sites.
If you recall, Joe bought the home (WITH CASH!?!?) for $6.2 million in June of 2016. Who pays for their multi-million dollar house with cash?!? Of course, when your last contract with your former employer was worth $184 million, as Mauer’s most recent deal with the Twins was, paying $6 million for a house isn’t all that much, I guess.
Anyway, according to the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal, casa de Mauer is pretty big -- 6,500 square feet, with five bedrooms, seven bathrooms and an eight-stall garage. It’s located on “3.1 acres, with 115 feet of shoreline on the south side of Wayzata Bay in Woodland,” the story noted. It's a pretty nice place to spend one's holidays during your second year in retirement-- even if you're only 36, as Joe turned back in April.
So, yeah. It's pretty nice. And while Joe and his wife, Maddie, may have redecorated their home since they first moved in three years ago, you can still check out what the place looks like (or, looked like when it was for sale, anyway) HERE.
