A 12,079-square-foot villa in Cabo San Lucas co-owned by former Major League Baseball star Jason Giambi will sell at auction next month at auction.
Located in the gated community of Pedegral de Cabo San Lucas, the property – known as Casa Cielo – is currently listed for $10.7 million and will be sold without by real estate auction firm Concierge Auctions in cooperation with Marco Ehrenberg and Jhoanna Higuera of Los Cabos Sotheby’s International Realty.
“The auction of Casa Cielo marks an exciting new chapter for me as I move on to other ventures,” stated Giambi, who played for the Oakland Athletics, New York Yankees, Colorado Rockies, and Cleveland Indians before retiring in 2015. “Concierge Auctions was my top choice to sell this asset because of their transparent process, global marketing strategy and ability to handle it all in a desired time frame. Similar to the sale of other luxury goods at auction, I am ready to listen to the market and trust Concierge Auctions to identify the right buyer for this home.”
The furnished nine-bedroom Mexico villa offers 10 full and two half-bathrooms, with architectural features including hardwood ceiling beams, soaring ceilings, telescoping walls of glass blending indoor and outdoor living, gallery walls, marble floors, and an intricate hardwood double front door.
The interior includes a master sanctuary with private terrace access, a spa bath, and Roman soaking tub with a view; a chef’s kitchen with custom cabinetry, center island, and skylights; a home office, in-home fitness center, billiards/game room, den with minibar, and maid’s quarters.
All bedrooms have deck access and ocean views.
Parking amenities include a three-car attached garage and additional spots for 10 cars.
Outdoor features include multi-level terraces, an infinity-edge swimming pool, hot tub, fire pit, outdoor bar and kitchen, and a hilltop setting with panoramic vistas of the Sea of Cortez and Cabo San Lucas.
Bidding on the villa will be open May 21.
