Yankees manager sells Scottsdale home to former NFL player
PHOENIX — It’s not often that football and baseball collide. But when it comes to real estate, anything is possible.
New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone recently finished selling his Scottsdale home to former Detroit Lions offensive lineman, Dominic Raiola.
According to Redfin, the property is located near Scottsdale and Double Tree Ranch roads, and sold for $3.165 million on June 15.
Located in the highly sought-after Paradise Valley Farms neighborhood, the 7,015-square-foot home was custom-built in 2016 on an acre of land.
The house features nine bedrooms — including an office and game room — and seven bathrooms with a 975-square-foot detached guest house. The circular driveway leads up to the front courtyard, with a three-car garage on the side of the house.
Inside, the home features wide plank wood flooring throughout, with wood beam accented ceilings, a fireplace and barn doors.
Outside, the backyard features a covered patio with a gas fireplace, an outdoor kitchen and dining area and an artificial turf and grass area. In addition, the pool and spa make for a great entertainment area.
Boone managed the property up until it was sold. In his first season as the manager of the Yankees, Boone previously played 12 years in the big leagues.
He was drafted by the Cincinnati Reds in 1997, where he remained until 2003 when he joined the Yankees. Boone then went on to play for the Cleveland Indians (2005-06), Florida Marlins (2007), Washington Nationals (2008) and Houston Astros (2009).
Raiola called it a career after the 2014 NFL season. He spent his entire career in Detroit with the Lions, and returned to the organization in 2016 as the strength and conditioning assistant coach, but is no longer with the team.
