Mariano Rivera, a Hall of Fame pitcher not accustomed to losing, sold his Westchester home at a significant loss this month. The former New York Yankee bought the mansion for $5.7 million in 2006 and listed it for $3.995 million in 2020. As the Wall Street Journal reported, the nine-bedroom home in Rye closed last week for $3.783 million, a loss of roughly $1.9 million.
As 6sqft previously reported, Rivera, who in 2019 became the first player ever unanimously elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame, moved his family from Panama to Westchester in 2000. The Riveras are selling the property because their three sons are grown and the family is looking to downsize.
The huge 13,050-square-foot home has an elegant interior, with coffered ceilings, large mantles, and ornate moldings and door frames. There are nine bedrooms and eight-and-a-half bathrooms, a home theater, gym, rec room, massive pool deck, and a gated motor court, and a four-car garage.
One of Mo’s favorite spots in the home was a wood-paneled sports bar, where he would host friends and teammates.
Other perks of the palatial home include a huge primary suite, which includes a separate den, walk-in closet, and luxurious en-suite bath, six secondary bedroom suites, and an entertainment-ready rec space in the basement that has a home theater, gym, and secondary kitchen.
