David ‘Big Papi’ Ortiz Asks $12.5 Million for Miami-Area Mansion

David Ortiz, a longtime Boston Red Sox slugger, is asking $12.5 million for his mansion in the Miami region.

According to listing agent Michael Martinez of ONE Sotheby’s International Realty, the approximately 10,200 square foot home was constructed in 2019 and is situated in Pinecrest, a suburban community in Miami-Dade County.

According to records, Mr. Ortiz, also known by his stage moniker “Big Papi,” and his wife Tiffany Ortiz paid $1.5 million for the roughly 1-acre parcel in 2016, the year he announced his retirement from professional baseball. On the property, a five-bedroom custom house was constructed, according to Mr. Martinez.

Legal papers state that the Ortizes are going through a divorce.

A request for feedback from Mr. Ortiz was not answered. The reason they are selling, according to Ms. Ortiz in an email, is that their kids are adults.

The majority of the home’s bedrooms, according to Mr. Martinez, are two-story rooms with an upstairs sleeping section and sliding doors that open to the pool area. Two bathrooms, one on the first level and the other upstairs, each with a tub and a 16-foot-wide shower, are located in the main suite.

According to Mr. Martinez, the home was built with lots of room for entertaining. A dining section and two living areas can be found in the great room. There is a bar in an eight-seat home cinema, and the ceiling lights are made to resemble a starry night sky. The area where Mr. Ortiz’s sports memorabilia was on exhibit was a separate lounge with a bar. Nine TV displays mounted above the bar are accommodated by the room’s roughly 18-foot ceilings.

According to Mr. Martinez, the Ortiz family enjoys cooking, and the kitchen has a sizable metal counter for food preparation. A walk-in pantry with additional refrigerator room is also present. They have loved using this kitchen, he said.

The house has a marble terrace surrounding the pool and an outdoor kitchen. On the grounds, there are also several water elements, including reflecting pools in front of the house, a garage, a gazebo, three fire pits, and other structures. The Ortizes, according to Mr. Martinez, have a number of residences, including real estate in nearby Boston and Miami.

The 47-year-old Mr. Ortiz spent the majority of his 20-year professional baseball tenure as the designated hitter for the Boston Red Sox, where he attained cult status. In 2022, he was admitted to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Mr. Ortiz has created a brand of youth baseball gear and currently works as a studio analyst for FOX Sports.

According to Mr. Martinez, Pinecrest draws celebrities and professional players because of its expansive lot sizes. According to Zillow, the average home valuation in Pinecrest is just over $2 million. Two Pinecrest houses have sold for more than $10 million in the past three months, he claimed, following a slow summer.
