Why We Wish We Bought This House:

Former professional baseball player Alex Rodriguez’s recently-sold Hollywood Hills mansion might be located just north of the famous Sunset Strip in Los Angeles, but the property exudes calm and serenity. The contemporary design of the house makes the most of its breathtaking views over the city: soaring glass windows, light-colored stonework and wooden flooring all contribute to the Zen aesthetic of this gorgeous home.

With an enviable kitchen (equipped with multiple ovens and a sleek island) and plenty of space for entertaining (including a fireplace for cool California nights), the four-bedroom home is ideal for entertaining—and conveniently located near some of Los Angeles’s most exciting hotspots.

The outdoor areas feature a swimming pool, as well as outdoor seating where residents and guests can lounge under the palm—making this property a gorgeous urban oasis a stone’s throw away from Los Angeles’s thriving nightlife scene.

And that’s why A-Rod’s ex LA pad is one of the Top 25 homes we wish we bought.
