Built in 2016, the 12,500-square-foot, five-bedroom, 10-bath home is located on the edge ofÂ Lake Nona Golf & Country Club. From his backyard,Â the three-time All-Star can watch golfers attempt to navigate the clubâ€™s 16th holeâ€”itâ€™s a punishing par-4 with twin sand traps near the green.
The house itself is open and modern, with floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors in most of the rooms. When open, they create the ultimate indoor-outdoor party space.
Exteriorrealtor.comItâ€™sÂ designed around a central courtyard, which has four palm trees and a well-groomed putting green. Surrounding the courtyard are a large sitting area, two bedrooms, a gallery hallway, and the entertainment area.
Courtyardrealtor.comThe entertainment area has a skinny, glass-enclosed fireplace (with a distinctive honeycomb tile design), bartenderâ€™s station, and dramatic wine bar. In listing photos of the room, thereâ€™s also a dining table, sitting area, and baby grand piano.
Fireplacerealtor.comWine bar and dining roomrealtor.comThe sleek, European-style kitchen features high-gloss cabinetry, wine fridge, Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, Caesarstone quartz countertops, and center island. To break up the kitchenâ€™s glossy perfection, thereâ€™s a rough-cut, waterfall-edge wooden breakfast bar attached to the island.
Kitchenrealtor.comThe master bedroom has its own Wolf coffee system, safe room, walk-in closet, and laundry station. The master bath has a soaking tub and waterfall shower.
Just beyond the entertainment area are the infinity pool, sun shelf, and floating spa. There are two outdoor grillsâ€”one by the pool, and the other on the 1,775-square-foot rooftop terrace. The terraceâ€™s kitchen is particularly cool, with a long wet bar and multiple TVs mounted above the grilling station.

In case of a major storm, thereâ€™s a whole-house generator to keep the lights on. Elsewhere, thereâ€™s a guesthouse with its own lanai, an elevator, and twin two-car garages.
GonzĂˇlez appears to be just as savvy in real estate as he is on the diamondâ€”snapping up this house for $345,000Â less than the listingÂ price.
The 32-year-old right fielder is a fixture in the Colorado outfield, now in hisÂ 10th season manning Coors Field. Heâ€™s won three Gold Glove awards and, with 218 career home runs, remains a force in the Rockiesâ€™ lineup.
