Former MLB Angels Player Justin Upton’s designer house in Newport Beach lists for $7M

Former Major League Baseball outfielder

Justin Upton is looking for a buyer for his ultra-stylish Orange County home.

Upton, who played for the Arizona Diamondbacks,

Atlanta Braves, San Diego Padres, and Los Angeles Angels before becoming a free agent in 2022,

wants $6,795,000

for the 5-bedroom home, which sits in a prime area in the notoriously pricey Newport Beach.

The property is located

in the coveted Dover Shores neighborhood, a small community on the Back Bay in Newport Beach, where homes are rarely up for grabs.

Clocking in at almost 6,000 square feet of living space, the former MLB player’s house has 5 bedrooms, 6 full baths, and 1 half-bath.

The home has an open floor plan

anchored by a chef’s kitchen, fitted with top-of-the-line Thermador appliances, juxtaposed against handmade butcher blocks and lava stone countertops.

From the main living area, floor-to-ceiling sliding doors lead to an outdoor deck, built-in barbecue, and fire pit.

But the pièce de résistance

is the three-level centerpiece floating staircase with 3-inch solid oak treads, a striking symbol of architectural ingenuity.

The basement level is where the fun’s at, 

featuring a surround sound movie theater, bar with popcorn maker, and a glass-enclosed wine cellar — making it the ideal space to entertain guests.

The upscale Newport Beach house is listed for $6,795,000, with Annie Clougherty at Compass holding the listing.
