The challenge to this design was creating an amazing entertaining environment for superstar athletes, friends and families while remaining an exceptionally invitiflg home for this young affluent family-oriented couple. A well conceived floor plan defines the ample entertaining areas and provides a distinct separation from private famiy areas. The entertaining wing for big people features a cozy media room complete with theatrical curtains for privacy; a gaming room with pool table, poker alcove and electronic gaming; an elaborate wrap around bar; indoor batting cage; ample displays for trophies and awards; massage/spa and salon. Moving glass walls connect the gameroom with the spacious terrace and pool for expanded entertaining. Family bedrooms are upstairs where the children's wing also includes a small game room. This very elegant residence is a good fit for its high profile owner, a professional ballplayer and his family, and is designed as both an entertainment paradise and as a family-centered home. In design and function, the home easily accommodates larger than life entertaining for the athlete's superstar friends and family. Additionally and separately, the home creates and preserves a highly livable home environment for this young family and their two very active boys.
