MLB All-Star Derek Lowe Lists Florida Mansion in Tony Golf Community

Steven Freeman/Getty Images; realtor.comOn April 27, 2002, MLB All-Star Derek Lowe pitched a no-hitter for the Boston Red Sox, one of baseball’s most hallowed achievements. Now retired, Lowe is looking for another noteworthy achievement: the sale of his Fort Myers, FL, home.
On the market for $4.5 million, the 8,157-square-foot home sits on a half-acre lot and features five bedrooms, five bathrooms, and two half-baths.
There are antique doors, wood flooring, and beamed ceilings throughout. The home includes two pools, a gym, custom bar, wine cellar, home theater, and basketball court.
The home is located in a gated community, according to listing agent Jay Westerlund of My Florida Real Estate. “Renaissance is one of the lowest-density golf communities in South Florida. It’s a pretty exclusive golf community.”
Westerlund notes that the luxe features of this grand mansion distinguish it from the other Tuscan-inspired homes in South Florida.

Lowe is a two-time All-Star. He also toed the rubber for six other MLB squads over the course of his 17-year career. He memorably won the World Series ring with the Red Sox in 2004.
