Big-time living in Texas

This elegant residence is a good fit for 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. A well-conceived floor plan defines the ample entertaining areas and provides a distinct separation from private family 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.
