Scottsdale, Arizona Home With a Wiffle Ball Field Hits the Market
By: Mansion Global
A turnkey property in the heart of Scottsdale, Arizona, that comes with a Wiffle ball field and a batting cage, has come to the market for nearly $2 million.
“Our kids played little league baseball, so we just kept developing the property to suit their needs,” said the seller Alexander Hanon. “Scottsdale is the center for baseball, with more little leagues than elsewhere, and college and professional baseball training and games year round,” he said.
Wiffle Ball is a variation of baseball, usually played in a confined area using a lightweight plastic ball and plastic bat. Mr. Hanon, 53, a retired firefighter from New York, and his wife, Jill, purchased the property in 2014 for $480,000, he said. They have extensively renovated the 1977 house over the years.
“We did new flooring, windows and roof, converted a room into a movie theater with a fully integrated karaoke system, upgraded the kitchen cabinets and countertops,” Mr. Hanon said. “We developed pretty much every corner of the property.”
Situated on 0.58 acres behind a gate, the house has 3,293 square feet of living space with five bedrooms and three bathrooms.
Outdoors, the Wiffle ball field has a scoreboard, foul poles, thick baselines, a batters box, bases, and the L-shaped batting cage. Additionally, there is a swimming pool with a waterfall grotto and slide and a three-car garage with two RV charging stations, Mr. Hanon said.
The property is near world-class golf courses as well as high-end retail and dining, he said. Ms. Hanon, herself a real estate agent with West USA Realty, listed the property earlier this week.
