Manny Machado is a professional baseball player who is currently the third baseman for the San Diego Padres of Major League Baseball. He made his debut in 2012 and has since earned recognition as one of the best fielders in the game. Machado began his professional baseball career with the Baltimore Orioles, for whom he played from 2012 to 2018. He then played for Los Angeles Dodgers for a year before moving to his current team in 2019. The baseball player has been married to Yainee Alonso since 2014. His wife is the sister of professional baseball player Yonder Alonso. Due to his success on the field, Manny Machado now has a net worth of $50 million, says Celebrity Net Worth. He has the potential to become even wealthier as he currently has a very lucrative contract. His wealth means he can take his pick of luxurious properties in the most desirable neighborhoods. It seems that this is how he has chosen to spend some of this money, as last year, he purchased a waterfront compound in Coronado for exactly $10 million. Here is a look at his stunning home.
An Overview of Machado’s Coronado Compound
Machado’s new home is a bay-front property that was built in 2009 and is called ‘Zee Huis,’ which is Dutch for ‘Sea House.’ The 7,300-square-foot property sits on a lot of almost half an acre, and it boasts views of the San Diego downtown skyline and across the harbor. The buttercream yellow property stands out along the coastline. Although Machado and his wife bought the property in 2019, the $10 million purchase of the house was unreported until this year.
Inside His Stunning Property
The stunning Coronado home measures 7,300-square-feet internally, and it boasts 11 bathrooms and eight bedrooms. While four of the bedrooms are in the main house, the other four bedrooms are split between two further structures on the grounds. Throughout the property, there is a Las-Vegas-like casino style. A great room provides the main living area, with a formal sitting room, the kitchen, and a dining area. The formal living room is arranged around an impressive fireplace that has a large granite hearth and mantle. To the left of the fireplace is an in-built bookcase, while to the right, there is a large arched opening into the grand entrance hall and then more inset shelving. However, the floor-to-ceiling window and sliding doors are the most impressive features of this room. Not only do they give the homeowner spectacular views across the bay, but they also lead out onto the courtyard.
The living room is open-plan to the gourmet kitchen, which has polished wood cabinetry and granite countertops. Three windows look out onto the gardens. There are multiple high-end appliances in the kitchen that would make many professional chefs jealous, such as a teppanyaki grill. A large, granite-covered island between the kitchen and the living room provides additional storage and workspace. It is also an informal dining area as there are modern bar stools to one side of the island. Just off the kitchen is an alcove set into a curved bay window that is used as an additional dining space. Thanks to the large windows in this section of the great room, the homeowners can enjoy panoramic views across the bay as they dine.
The downstairs space also has three further rooms that have the potential for many uses. One is currently used as an informal sitting room, a second is used as a music room, and the third is a games room with a snooker table as its centerpiece. Each of these rooms is light and airy, with large windows looking out onto the grounds. Of the four bedrooms in the main property, the master suite is the largest. This bedroom is beautifully appointed and boasts views across the bay to San Diego’s skyline from the large windows. The master ensuite is equally impressive, with dark wood cabinetry, marble countertops, double sinks, a tiled floor, and recess lighting.
The Exterior of His Home
Machado’s home is a pretty buttermilk yellow, and it is built in a nouveau-riche Dutch style that means the property is prominent along Coronado’s coastline. Some of the property’s most notable external features are the wrought-iron balconies and the arched gambrel rooftops. Another notable feature is the pale blue trims around the windows and doors. The house sits on a lot of almost half an acre, which you enter through a carriage door. Beyond this door, the grounds consist of lush gardens and pretty courtyards with tropical landscaping. The latter are the perfect spots for alfresco dining or for entertaining friends.
However, the best feature of the grounds is the large, curved infinity pool. The swimming pool sits at the property’s edge, and the rim that connects with the coastline is lined with rocks. An inset hot tub is on the opposite side of the pool, close to the main residence. Next to the pool is a raised patio that is partially covered with a beautifully-designed wooden structure, and it is surrounded by glass paneling to make the most of the bay views. The patio is large enough to accommodate a huge table surrounded by chairs, plus additional seating.
There are a further two structures on the grounds, each of which has two bedrooms, says Dirt.com. Therefore, there are a further four bedrooms for guests in addition to the four bedrooms in the main residence. It will allow Machado and his wife to invite friends and family to stay while maintaining their own privacy. Both the main house and the two additional structures are arranged around a large courtyard. Another feature of the property’s exterior is the multi-car garage, which can accommodate several cars. Additional parking for the homeowner and their guests is available on the large courtyard to the front of the property.
