Located in Fort Myers, Florida, the 11,190-square-foot home is where Lowe conducted spring training while playing for the Red Sox. It was also his offseason residence for several years.
Lowe's ex-wife, Trinka Lowe, is the current owner of the house. The couple built the house for their family in 2002, the same year Derek was named an American League All-Star.In 2005, the couple filed for divorce due to marital problems and became widely known.
Jeff Burns, listing agent with Premier Sotheby's International Realty, said, "This is an absolutely stunning luxury home, but it's also very interesting. I've never seen a home like this with so many fun little areas - from the pool table to the ballet room, to the craft room, to the gym that's bigger than most public gyms - it's really got it all."
The home also features basketball and pickleball courts, a four-hole putting green, a cigar room, a cinema and a resort-style swimming pool.
Burns said, "Whereas most homes have a few things here and a few things there, this one has all the fun things I can think of, with the home theatre being a favourite. I can see a family sitting there and watching multiple films in one weekend."
Before the couple separated, they wanted to create a home that would appeal to both adults and children.
I call it "cosy luxury," says Burns." It's a very cosy home. It's not overwhelming."
The main house has four bedrooms and a guest room, providing plenty of privacy for overnight guests.
If guests are visiting, they can stay in their own area with their own garage under the guest house, Burns explains.
The home sits on 2.38 acres in the back of a gated community, just a short drive from local baseball fields and beaches.
Burns said the home's lovely exterior made a strong first impression.
It's flanked by two stone pillars, and it's just such a huge facade, but it's not overly grandiose, he said. It's beautiful and you say to yourself, this house is stunning. I can't wait to see what's inside.
Lowe won a World Series with the Red Sox in 2004 and played for several teams, including the Los Angeles Dodgers and Atlanta Braves. He retired in 2013.
