Late Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully’s LA home lists for $15M

“Home Plate,” as legendary sportscaster Vin Scully named his house, is looking for a new team. 

The estate of the man who, for 67 seasons — and from Brooklyn to Los Angeles — was the voice of the Dodgers, has hit the market for $15 million. Scully passed away in August at the age of 94. 

“Having the honor of listing our family home is bittersweet,” his daughter, Catherine Scully — who holds the listing with Mimi Bladow of Compass — told The Post in a statement. “Our home was full of so many beautiful memories, love and laughter, but as my dad used to say, there is a season and a time for everything in life. This was his wish, with the prayer that now a huge chapter of our family story had come to an end, the proverbial torch in our home would be passed to the next family to continue making beautiful memories.”

The French chateau-style compound in the gated Hidden Hills neighborhood was built in 2003 and is set on just under 2 acres of land. The main house measures more than 11,000 square feet and boasts seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a wine cellar, a pool, a full-size tennis court, an outdoor kitchen, a putting green and more.

The late baseball legend acquired the mansion through a trust for slightly north of $12.4 million in 2009, Mansion Global reported.

The two-story main house boasts wood and wrought-iron double-front entry doors leading into Versailles-patterned and oak wood floors, coffered ceilings and custom treated walls spread over two stories.

Main floor amenities include a marble wet bar, a movie theater, a fireplace-equipped family room, a butler’s pantry and a library. Significant square footage has been devoted to guests, with a detached guest apartment and a full guest house, according to the listing. The primary suite has its own balcony, with a soothing soundtrack from the water features below. 

“[This] home embodies true classic French country elements and style,” says the listing.
