Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera’s house in Birmingham, Michigan is officially on the market. Listed by Maureen Francis of Coldwell Banker for $1,999,000, the 7-bedroom house sports 5 full bathrooms and 2 half baths.
380 FAIRFAX STREET
The full description of the property at 380 Fairfax Street — taken from Coldwell Banker’s site — follows. Noticeably, it neglects to mention the tiger-striped carpet on the stairs leading to the second story.
This newer brick and stone custom built Tudor home is located in one of Birmingham’s most sought after neighborhoods, Quarton Lake Estates, and is close to downtown Birmingham’s shops and restaurants and the neighborhood elementary school. You’ll appreciate the granite island chef’s kitchen with adjoining morning room, beautifully paneled library with a coffered ceiling, newly refinished hardwood floors and the fully finished lower level, with it’s own bar. A finished bonus room on the upper level serves perfectly as a play room or en-suite bedroom. Wonderful state of the art custom theater room with leather seating. The spacious master suite boasts a marble master bath, custom walk in closet and a soaking tub. Newer outdoor patio with built in grill and pergola for outdoor entertaining in the private, fenced back yard. Attached 3 car garage. Shown by appointment to preapproved buyers. Taxes are not homesteaded.
Whoever buys the house is going to be able to say they sit daily on the porcelain throne vacated by the Triple Crown winner. Not bad bragging rights for $2 million…
237 LAKE SHORE ROAD
It’s rumored that Cabrera’s new Michigan address, since late last year, is a 11,175 square-foot mansion in Grosse Pointe Farms. The lakefront property boasts a pool, garages for eight cars, putting green, and a 20-foot-long glass solarium with a marble floor. Naturally, it also has its own drone-made video.
