There were some price puns circling the newsroom yesterday when the listing for Troy Tulowitzki’s Colorado home was released.
If his Denver-area home had
its own baseball slash line, the sabermetrics would likely read: 7 bedrooms/10 bathrooms/14,157 square feet. Those are impressive numbers, but with the former Rockie now in Toronto, the home is up for sale for $5,890,000.
With 2.5 acres at the end of a private cul-de-sac in Cherry Hills Village, the grounds offer mountain views, a resort-style pool/hot tub and yes, an exercise room decorated with Rockies logos.
Under $6 million to live like an MLB player. Is that too low for Tulo’s house? Here are what the pricey pads of some other Colorado professional athletes had to offer.

In 2012, the Mannings purchased a seven-bedroom home in Cherry Hills Village for $4,575,000. The home was originally listed in March 2011 at $5.25 million.
According to Fuller Sotheby’s International Realty listing at the time, the house is more than 16,000 square feet on 3.37 acres with seven bathrooms, separate media and billiard rooms, a “safe” room and an elevator.
Fun fact: That’s about a 10 mile commute to Broncos headquarters at Dove Valley, or around 20 minutes.

In 2011, Carmelo Anthony and LaLa Vazquez sold their Littleton home for $6.2 million when making the move to New York. It had been on the market for one year for $9.5 million and Anthony paid $12 million for it in 2007.
That’s a loss of $5.8 million.
According to Zillow, the house is 5.7 gated acres, a main house with three support buildings, a seven-car garage, a three-stall barn with a pasture and pond, a recording studio, a theater and a gym and — for the necessities — eight bedrooms and 15 baths.

Fun fact: He bought the house from former Qwest exec Stephen Jacobsen, who custom built it in 2002.

In 2008, Denver Broncos coach Mike Shanahan updated a sprawling ranch home in Cherry Hills Village fit for any episode of MTV Cribs.
Did somebody say six fireplaces?
Designed by Sall Residential Design Group, the building permit filed that year with Cherry Hills Village showed a 34,927-square-foot home including a bowling alley, an arcade, a video-golf room, a racquetball court and a shuffleboard table.
Not enough? The house, aside from all the normal things like bedrooms and bathrooms, has six fireplaces; a 3,600-square-foot, six-car garage; a 2,150-square-foot guest house; a “wine residence” and guest house; a swimming pool; and two bridges.
The cost to build the home was around $7 million when the permit was released.
Fun fact: Denver real-estate agent Rollie Jordan, who specializes in luxury real estate, said that neighborhood is most prestigious in Cherry Hills with a lot of recognizable Denver names.
