Retired first baseman Wally Joyner played in the MLB for over 15 years and made nearly $40 million over the course of his career. The All-Star is now selling his 40-acre equestrian estate in Utah for $7.9 million.
Here are some details via the Listing:
This is a premiere 40-acre gated estate and equestrian facility located at the base of Maple Mountain with direct access to public lands. The property is tucked away down a private tree-lined lane with rolling hills, irrigated pastures, and dramatic views of the mountains. Ranch amenities include 22 heated stalls, a tack room/office, kitchen, an 18, 600 sf indoor arena, a 20, 000 sf outdoor arena, a round pen, 11 outdoor corrals, a massive 10+ car garage, hay storage, a shavings garage, multiple irrigated pastures, and extensive water rights. There are two beautiful ponds on the property, one with picturesque waterfalls and another used as a holding area for the irrigation system. For those who don’t ride horses you can ride ATVs, mountain bikes or even go hiking on the foothills of the mountain. The living quarters are the perfect combination of luxury and livability. They boast incredible finish work, a large family room, a gourmet kitchen, a formal dining area, a huge master suite, a fun tv/game room, an office, a fantastic exercise facility, and two additional bedroom suites. The living quarters even have windows looking into the indoor arena. The property is located only an hour from Salt Lake City and Park City and 20 minutes to BYU.
Joyner’s wife, Lesley, and their four daughters all ride horses competitively, and the property will be for any family who loves horses.
It features an 18,600-square-foot indoor riding arena, 20,000-square-foot outdoor arena, round pen, 22 heated indoor stalls, 11 outdoor stalls, tack room and office, hay storage, and shavings garage.
Wally had a pretty nice career, and he was paid very well as a result. I haven’t heard his name in quite some time. Refreshing.
