Jered Weaver is waving goodbye to shore breaks and coastal sunsets. The Los Angeles Angels perennial All-Star has sold his Newport Coast home for $1.6 million, according to Realtor.com.
The three bedroom, three bathroom home is located in Pacific Ridge, an exclusive guard-gated community less than an hour away from Angels Stadium. Weaver originally purchased it for $1.36 million back in 2010 but was looking to flip it for as much as $1.8 million.
Weaver is hardly the first Halo to buy beach-front property. Former starting pitcher John Lackey listed his Crystal Cove-area mansion for just under $10 million, and current Detroit Tigers outfielder sold his 4,346-square foot house in March 2013 for his asking price of $3.975 million. In addition, teammate C.J. Wilson resides off the Laguna Beach coast, minutes away from Weaver’s former abode.
The Angels ace signed a five-year, $85 million contract in August 2011, meaning he’ll be an Angel through 2016 and unless he purchases another Orange County home, Weaver will have to bear the long, timely commute from his Los Angeles-area residence throughout the season.
