Astros Star Carlos Correa Is Selling His Texas Home Since Becoming A Free Agent

Major League Baseball fans have been on the edge of their seats the last few months wondering if there was even going to be a 2022 season. Long-winded negotiations between the MLB and the MLB Player's Association seemed like they were never going to end, and the upcoming season seemed to be up in the air. Luckily, the two sides have finally resolved their issues, and players are set to take the field on April 7, 2022, for a full 162 game season, according to USA Today.

Trades and signings have been in a flurry for most of the MLB organizations, and one of the popular names in the mix is Houston Astros free-agent shortstop, Carlos Correa, who, according to some trade rumors, seems to have his sights set on a big-time contract. But where exactly he lands is anyone's guess. This could be why the two-time All-Star and World Series Champion has recently put his Houston, Texas, home on the market for just shy of $1.6 million, per the Houston Chronicle. So let's take a look and see if this property is worth swinging for the fences or just another swing-and-a-miss.

A look outside of Correa's Texas home

The two-story single-family home sits on 6,198 square feet of property and has an attached two-car garage. Although the facade may not be the typical awe-inspiring pro-athlete home that you expect, it is delightfully quirky with a combination of tan-bricked and stucco siding, according to the listing on Zillow. As you make your way up the slab-stone walkway, you will see a lovely little flower garden with a half-glassed outdoor balcony overlooking the quaint, unassuming front yard.

However, it's the stellar private backyard where this property really shines. Viewed overhead by a long second-story balcony, the back features a spa area complete with a gas fireplace, television, hot tub, and pool. There is plenty of room for patio furniture so you can sit back and enjoy the warm Texas nights. The tall fence and full, leafy trees help to make the backyard feel more secluded. Even if you manage to get tired of lounging around the pool all day, you can exercise by shooting hoops on your very own tiled basketball court.

A look inside the baseball star's home

The inside of Carlos Correa's 3,657 square-foot Montrose Houston, Texas, home is very modern, with plenty of windows to let in all of that natural light. According to New York Post — which noted that the property's listing is being looked after by Kristi Neal with a price tag of $1.599 million — Correa purchased the home just before he and the Houston Astros won the World Series back in 2017.

Walking through the home, you are greeted by a mixture of dark marbled floors and wooden flooring to guide you through the large, high-ceilinged rooms. The spacious open-concept kitchen comes with stainless steel appliances a stylish pantry and features beautiful counter-top bar seating that looks out onto the inviting backyard spa area. The calming neutrally painted dining room flows seamlessly into the living room area, which has a gas-burning fireplace and wall-mounted television perfect for entertaining.

Windows and bathrooms galore

Among the three bedrooms, which feature more big beautiful windows that allow light to illuminate the rich dark flooring, is a luxurious lounge area attached to the master bedroom. This space is ideal for quiet reading and relaxing near the double-sided fireplace and includes a walk-out to a private balcony, per The five — that's right — five bathrooms are light and modern and boast big roomy showers that are tastefully tiled to match the rest of the house.

Other stunning amenities are a bonus room which can serve as a theatre space, at-home office, or even a good indoor area to get in a quick workout. Also, there is laundry on the upper floor as well as a game room. It must be difficult for Correa to say goodbye to such a delightful home which he has enjoyed for the last five years, but this space would surely be a home run to any potential buyer who is also a true baseball fan.
