Last year, Dodgers infielder Max Muncy suffered a season-ending elbow injury that kept him out of postseason play. He returned for the 2022 season, only to have his World Series dreams crushed when his team lost to the San Diego Padres in the National League Division Series. Despite these setbacks, the 32-year-old All-Star player still has plenty of reasons to celebrate.
Not only did Muncy just sign a $13.5 million contract extension, but he and wife Kellie are expecting a second child in May. They also just scooped up some big new Studio City digs to accommodate their growing family, per Dirt. Records show the couple—who already own homes in Arizona and Muncy’s home state of Texas—doled out just under $4.8 million for the modern farmhouse-style structure, which was recently built and designed by Core Homes.
Tucked away on an almost quarter-acre parcel protected by walls and gates, the white and gray wood-sided home is fronted by a wide driveway that leads to an attached two-car garage. Once inside, six bedrooms and seven baths are filtered throughout 5,400 square feet of two-level living space boasting blonde hardwood floors, built-ins and high wood-beam ceilings.
An open-concept floorplan is highlighted by a formal dining area spotlighted by a wet bar, along with a family room featuring a linear fireplace and pocketing glass doors spilling out to a partially covered al fresco dining terrace. The adjacent gourmet kitchen is outfitted with custom cabinetry, quartz countertops, a central island adjoined by a breakfast counter, two apron sinks, top-tier Thermador appliances and a walk-in pantry.
Upstairs, a spacious master retreat comes complete with a fireside seating area, private balcony, dual walk-in closets, and a spa-inspired bath equipped with a freestanding soaking tub nestled alongside a large glass-encased shower. Elsewhere is a tiered movie theater; and outdoors, the turf-clad grounds host a barbecue and bar setup, as well as a pool and spa.
Rounding it all out: a detached one-bedroom, one-bath accessory dwelling unit holding a living room with fireplace, kitchen and an office/exercise room.
