Alex Rodriguez, with his East Coast move with girlfriend Jennifer Lopez in mind, has put his four-bedroom, four-bathroom home in the exclusive Hollywood Hills West area up on the market for $6.5 million, TMZ reports.
Per the LA Times:
Known as the Honnold & Rex Research House, the Midcentury Modern residence was built in 1954 under the Architectural Products magazine research program, which encouraged experimentation with materials and designs. About a decade ago, it was redesigned and reconfigured by earlier owner and architectural conservator Xorin Balbes.
Tucked away on a secluded drive, the home features horizontal louvers that wrap the exterior of the home and provide a privacy screen while diffusing light during the day and night.
At the heart of the house is a two-story living room with a block-wall fireplace that runs from floor to ceilings. Clean lines, a mix of organic materials and walls of windows reinforce its modernist roots. The two-story floor plan includes a chef’s kitchen, a dining room and a family room on the main floor.
The master suite — one of four bedrooms and four bathrooms — floats above the living room area, allowing for city light and tree-top views. Another bedroom, which doubles as an office, overlooks the backyard.Walls of glass open to a rear courtyard with a swimming pool and spa. Hedges and tall palms give the property a sense of seclusion.Rodriguez, who retired from baseball two years ago, bought the property in 2014 from Oscar-winning actress Meryl Streep for $4.8 million.
A-Rod and J-Lo, who have been romantically linked since 2016, spurred engagement rumors last month when the 49-year-old actress-singer was seen wearing a massive sparkler while attending a World Series game in Boston.
