Hamilton filed for divorce in February, around the same time he had a substance abuse relapse. According to The Associated Press, Hamilton isn’t allowed to visit this Newport Coast home as well as the couple’s properties in Westlake and Valley Mills, TX. Hamilton is in the process of working his way back to the field.
The six-bedroom luxury estate in Newport Coast measures 10,850 square feet and is built on the highest point in the exclusive community of Crystal Cove, providing views of the ocean and twinkling city lights below.
Vaulted wood-beam ceilings give the home a stately feel, and a wine cellar provides ample opportunity for entertaining guests.
If you’re a car buff, this house has you covered. The gigantic garage can hold at least eight vehicles. If you hate climbing stairs, this three-story home comes with an elevator.
Upstairs, there’s a large patio terrace where you can dine and soak in panoramic views.
On the lower level, you can enjoy your favorite movie in the state-of-the art theater and game room. If you need to tackle a massive pile of dirty laundry, the laundry room holds two washers and two dryers.
In Hamilton’s divorce filing, 34 petitions were attached. “Among the requests: prohibiting his wife from using a Maserati and 1972 Chevrolet Blazer in his possession; prohibiting her from ‘hiding’ the children from him; prohibiting her from making disparaging remarks against him or his family,” the AP reported.
While the filing states conflict between them as a reason for the divorce, Katie Hamilton recently told TMZ she was “blindsided” by the filing and there was no indication of a split on the horizon.
It’s unclear what led to his relapse earlier this year, but Hamilton, who was a five-time All-Star when he played for the Texas Rangers, has struggled with alcohol and cocaine dependency in the past.
The former MVP underwent surgery in February for a torn AC joint in his right shoulder. If his injury heals properly and he finds a team that wants him, Yahoo Sports reports, the slugger aims to return to the diamond in June.
