Altadena charmer with Dodgers ties seeks $2.4 million

An Altadena home once owned by former Dodgers reliever Jim Gott is now in play at $2.395 million.

Gott, who pitched for the Dodgers for five seasons during his 14-year career, bought the property in 1992 for $590,000, records show. He sold the place in 1998 — three years after his retirement from baseball — for $712,000.

Set on half an acre, the English transitional-style house charms with its matching roof gables, arched front door and picture windows. Inside, the two-story opens to a living room with a Batchelder-style tiled fireplace. A formal dining room with palladian-style windows, a family room, an office and a chef’s kitchen fill out the main floor.

The 3,934-square-foot floor plan holds six bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. In the master suite, which sits beneath vaulted ceilings, there’s a walk-in closet and French doors that open to a balcony.

Outside, palms and market lights form a backdrop for various patios and a pool with a raised spa. A detached two-car garage sits off to the side.
