Having just last year departed the East Coast for
San Francisco St. Louis, former New York Mets slugger Carlos Beltran is now trying to unload his home on the Gold Coast of Long Island. The all-star outfielder and restaurateur had it custom-built for his family after dabbling with life—and almost buying an apartment—in Manhattan, which proved too hectic for his more low-key sensibilities. "I can't live there. It's crazy every day," he once told the L.A. Times. "When I wake up in the morning, I go outside. I see trees. I see green," he said of the two-acre property, which is located on the Port Washington peninsula. Totaling 7,500 square feet, the seven-bedroom house is, according to the brokerbabble, quite the gem. It's not only "spectacular" but also "refined," with a "fabulous kitchen," an "impressive great room," a "magnificent hallway," a "luxurious master bath," and—this being built for an athlete, of course—an "impressive gym with kitchen." The ask may be $5.8M, but can one really put a price tag on a personal karaoke bar?
