Homes of Baseball’s Top Players for 2012


- —

Status: Available as rental ($15,000/month)


The Yankees were able to lure Mark Teixeira to New York with a $180-million deal in 2008, but that left a big piece of real estate hanging in Texas: What to do with that stunning custom home in the super-exclusive Vaquero Golf Club enclave in Westlake? For two years, the home was listed for $5.75 million before a price drop to $4.55 million in April 2010 and another in November 2010 to $3.95 million. When that didn't attract a buyer, Teixeira did the next-best thing: He rented the home to Sean Payton, the now-suspended head coach of the New Orleans Saints. With Payton having bought his own home in the area, Teixeira's home is again available for $15,000-a-month on the Westlake real estate market, unless someone nabs it for its list price of $3.95 million.
