Sure, the housing market sucks, but let's not that let stop us from fantasizing a little bit about how rad it would be to have an outdoor pizza oven. Check that: How rad it would be to own an outdoor pizza oven once used by former Mariners pitcher turned super-old-dude-in-the-Colorado-Rockies'-starting-rotation Jamie Moyer. King 5 reports this morning that Moyer's 7,100 square-foot Magnolia estate at 2550 40th Avenue West has been put on the market, with an asking price of $5.35 million.
Considering the home, built in 1933, includes a swimming pool, a bath house, a croquet yard, a batting cage, and - yes - an outdoor pizza oven, it's hard not to consider it a potential steal. The home's listing on realtor.com also indicates it comes with the standard seven bedrooms and five baths (or, more like 4.5 baths), sits on .42 acres, includes three fireplaces and - naturally - comes equipped with RV parking. The listing is being brokered by Coldwell Banker Bain.
Oh, and for those asking, yes, it has a cedar-shake roof.
Best of all, a monthly payment calculator on realtor.com indicates that if I put a cool $2 million down, and secure a 30-year fixed mortgage, my payment would be a paltry $16,050 a month.
If Moyer's pad doesn't do it for you, or you're just pissed that there was no available picture of Moyer's outdoor pizza oven, King 5 reported in March that former Sonics' forward Kevin Durant is attempting to sell his little-used Mercer Island crib - with the asking price a mere $2.8 million on that perfect starter home.
