Living the Dream

Via Curbed and Gizmodo (with a full-fledged hat tip to the outstanding Jays blog Mop Up Duty) comes this real estate opportunity for the deep-pocketed adolescent. This Denver-area home checks in at just over 10 000 square feet and can be yours for the low, low price of just $4 million! A bargain, really.

Hit the jump for more photos and a detailed breakdown of the American economy in taters. I mean, baseball!

Yes, this home on 73 acres features six bedrooms and eight bathrooms as well as a seven-car garage and workout room more ornate than your nana’s house. But the real attraction, not to mention the key to its incredible resale value? The indoor batting cage, of course!

Allow me to bring your attention to the far left edge of the batting cage photo, where you can plainly see a full drum set behind the protective screen.

Because the full sized baseball diamond and indoor batting cage doesn’t scream “arrested development” loudly enough, you need the drum set to further broadcast your unwillingness to go quietly into that good night.

Kudos, very rich man or woman. May your thoughtful opulence ring out through the ages.

UPDATE: By virtue of some terrifyingly public information, it seems this home is in the name of one Terri Weiss, wife of former big leaguer and American League rookie of the year Walt Weiss. I feel quite dirty right now.
