The free agent outfielder Kevin Pillar has quickly tracked down a buyer for his Scottsdale, AZ, home. Listed for $2,525,000, the big leaguer’s gorgeous abode snagged an offer after just a week on the market. It’s currently in contingent sale status.
In 2018, the California native and his wife, Amanda Gulyas, purchased the home, which was built in 2015, for $2.05 million.
With views of Camelback Mountain, the 3,813-square-foot property comes with four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. Located in the heart of the Arcadia district, which offers local shopping and dining, the contemporary structure features 9-foot tall ceilings, multiple access points to the yard, and a mix of wood and tile flooring.
The living and dining area has vaulted ceilings and custom cabinetry, with a gas-burning fireplace and open-plan layout.
Completely redone in 2019, the adjacent kitchen includes a large island with quartzite counters, Wolf range, Sub-Zero fridge, wet bar, and a breakfast nook that leads out to the covered patio. A formal dining room is right next to the front entry.
The owner’s suite has a bathroom with dual sinks and a separate tub and shower, as well as a huge walk-in closet. It also offers a private patio overlooking the pool and Camelback Mountain.
Each guest room is en suite with spacious walk-in closets.
Additional rooms allow for flexible living space. Depending on the next owner’s needs, the bonus rooms could be configured as a playroom, home office, or gym. Pillar currently has one of the spaces set up as a fitness area featuring a collection of sports memorabilia.
The large lot includes a covered patio with a built-in barbecue for outdoor meals, as well as a wood-burning fireplace to warm up on a cool night while lounging outside.
Along with a heated pool and spa, the grounds include a new yard of artificial turf and a sport court. A two-car garage completes the property.
The area is also close to the Camelback Mountain summit and the Arizona Canal Trail, which is popular for hiking, jogging, and cycling.
Now 31, Pillar reached the big leagues with the Toronto Blue Jays in 2013. After spending six seasons with the Jays, he’s played with the Boston Red Sox, San Francisco Giants, and Colorado Rockies in the past couple of seasons. He has yet to sign a deal for the 2021 season.
