Vin Scully News: Legendary Dodger Broadcaster’s Hidden Hills Home Sold

A couple months ago, we wrote about Vin Scully’s house going up for sale. The 11,000-square-foot mansion on a two-acre lot was listed by his daughter for $15 million.

Well, we regret to inform you that, unless you’re the anonymous buyer who purchased the house for $14 million, you’ve missed your chance to own the house lived in by the Hall of Fame broadcasting legend for the last 23 years of his life.

The Los Angeles Times wrote about the sale.

Vin Scully’s longtime home — a French chateau-style estate in Hidden Hills dubbed “Home Plate” — just sold for $14 million.

The prized compound hit the market for $15 million in October two months after Scully died at 94. It was a speedy sale, finding a buyer less than a month after listing.

Scully, a broadcasting legend who served as the voice of the Dodgers for more than six decades, paid $12.4 million for the impressive estate in 2009. It sits about 30 miles from Dodger Stadium.

Vin’s daughter, Compass agent Cat Scully, handled the sale. She called it bittersweet, adding that “a huge chapter of our family story has come to an end.”

Even in a community as affluent as Hidden Hills, the compound stands out in both size and scale, covering nearly two acres and centering on a two-story home with seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms across 11,000 square feet.

It really is a beautiful place. Click the link for photos and kick yourself for not getting your bid in on time.
