PHOENIX — A designated hitter for the New York Yankees has sold his Paradise Valley mansion for more than $4.6 million.

The Arizona Republic reported New York Yankees designated hitter Billy Butler, also known as “Country Breakfast” due to his size, and his wife Kathleen sold their home on Camelback Mountain for $4,671,800 on March 14.

The couple who bought the home, Richard and Leslie Jahns, paid cash for the 8,500-square-foot, Spanish-style mansion, which is located in the Judson neighborhood.

The “very exclusive” Judson neighborhood is guard-gated and is located on the edge of Camelback Mountain, according to the real estate website Redfin.

But the home itself is even more magnificent than the gates it leads you in by, featuring:

• Seven bedrooms

• Seven-and-a-half bathrooms

• Home gym — and an attached sauna

• Game room

• Fully-replicated Fenway Park mancave, with a live ticker

• Study

• Butler’s pantry with a subzero wine unit

• Wine dispenser

• Wet bar

• Dual dishwashers

• Heated pool and spa

• Gated motor court

• Private courtyards

• Custom closets

• Two outdoor kitchen areas

• Play area for the kids

• Sport court

• Putting green

• Dog run

• Pool bath

• Outdoor shower

• Ramada with a sitting area

It’s just something you have to check out for yourself.

We want to hear from you.
