Former MLB All-Star sells Southwest Ranches mansion for $7.4M
The 9,300-square-foot home at 17000 Stratford Court in Landmark Ranch Estates was purchased by 17000 Stratford LLC. The cash buyer is a Delaware-registered company, so it’s not clear who manages it.
Coldwell Banker Realty’s Giselle Bonetti and Nayrobi Garcia represented the sellers in the deal, while the buyer worked with Miguel Serrano with Douglas Elliman. They said the $791 price per square foot was a record for Landmark Ranch Estates, which is one of the wealthiest communities in western Broward County.
Cabrera built the home on the 2.69-acre lot in 2020. The home features nine bedrooms, nine bathrooms, two half-bathrooms, a floating wood staircase, a bar, a gym, a wine cellar, a theater room, a summer kitchen, a pool, a spa, a fire pit, and a half basketball.
Choeff Levy Fischman with B+G Design designed the home and it was constructed by Rick Bell of Landmark Custom Homes.
“Southwest Ranches is a highly desirable community for high-profile people because the communities here offer incredible size, space, and privacy – especially in this gated community, all while being at a convenient distance from the city, the airport and other prominent South Florida attractions,” Bonetti said.
A native of Venezuela, Cabrera was signed by the Seattle Mariners as a free agent in 2002 and was traded to the Cleveland Indians in 2006, where he spent time in the minor leagues. Cabrera made his Major League Baseball debut in 2007 and eventually became Cleveland’s starting second baseman. He made the All-Star team for the Indians in 2011 and 2012.
In 2014, Cleveland traded Cabrera to the Washington Nationals.
He went on the play for the Tampa Bay Rays, the New York Mets, the Philadelphia Phillies and the Texas Rangers before rejoining the Nationals in August 2019. He helped the Nationals win the World Series in 2019, starting a second base in their series-clinching Game 7.
He started the 2021 season with the Arizona Diamondbacks and played 90 games before Cincinnati claimed him off waivers in August. He appeared in 20 games for the Reds this season.
