K-Rod takes loss on Upper Brookville house
Former Met closer Francisco Rodriguez took a $302,000 loss on the sale of his Upper Brookville mansion.
Rodriguez, best known as K-Rod, sold the 13-room house Friday afternoon, according to real estate records.
The Milwaukee Brewers pitcher was asking $2.3 million -- the same price he paid for the property when he bought it in 2009. It went on the market April 16. It was on the market 115 days.
It sold for $1.89 million to a buyer from Queens.
The listing was with Matthew Korman of Douglas Elliman Real Estate, who brought Rodriguez to the original sale.
The house has six bedrooms, six bathrooms and a half-bathroom, and is on 2.21 acres. The home is on a cul-de-sac on a private road. There is a three-car garage, bocci court and in-ground pool on the 2.21-acre property.
The center-hall Colonial also has guest quarters, in addition to a wine cellar, butler's pantry and full basement.
