The longtime Hidden Hills estate of the late Dodgers broadcast legend Vin Scully and his wife, Sandi, has sold for $14 million.
Their house fetched nearly 7% less than the $15 million initially sought in October 2020.
The seven-bedroom, 11,615-square-foot spread dubbed “Home Plate,” completed in 2003, sits on nearly 2 acres. There’s a two-story mansion, a guest house and guest apartment.
A tennis court, a pool and spa, and a putting green are added perks of the resort-like grounds.
“It’s an incredible property,” said Michael Gilbert of Coldwell Banker Realty, the buyer’s agent. “When you walk in, there’s this incredible grand entrance and the entertaining is both in and out. It’s really that kind of a house.”
Though he adds, it’s also homey.
The main house has two offices, including a wood-paneled library that served as Vin Scully’s office with walls of built-in bookcases and a fireplace.
There’s a screening room, a wet bar off the formal living room and a wine room separated from the formal dining room by glass-and-wrought-iron doors. An informal bar in the family room flows into a casual dining area near the oversized gourmet kitchen with double islands.
Nearby is a butler’s pantry.
The second-floor primary suite has a kitchenette, dual bathrooms and closets, and a private balcony overlooking the gardens and vistas beyond.

“It’s got a lot of square footage, but you wouldn’t believe it when you walk through it,” Gilbert said. “It’s not like a giant vacuous hotel. It’s really a very warm house. And, of course, Vin Scully and his wife were incredible philanthropists and people and they really brought that into the house.”
Vin Scully, a Hall of Famer who called games for Dodgers fans in Brooklyn and Los Angeles for 67 seasons, had lived in the chateau-style residence in sought-after Ashley Ridge with his wife of 48 years since 2009. Sandi Scully died of complications of ALS in January 2021 at 76. The sportscasting great followed in August 2022 at 94.
The couple’s daughter, Cat Scully of Compass, who co-listed the family home with her colleague Mimi Bladow, said in a statement at the time that the family’s home “was full of so many beautiful memories, love and laugher, but as my dad used to say, there is a season and a time for everything in life. This was his wish, with the prayer that now a huge chapter of our family story had come to an end, the proverbial torch in our home would be passed to the next family to continue making beautiful memories.”
