So far, 2016 is promising to be a record-setting year for builders and buyers. So many great new innovations make it an exciting time to build and buy a new home.

Texas-born pitcher John Lackey is looking to sell his Fort Worth mansion in Monsterrat, according to Hardball Talk and my baseball-obsessed husband. Lackey, who played one season with UT-Arlington back in 1999, went on to play for the Anaheim Angels (where he helped the franchise win the World Series in 2002), the Boston Red Sox (where he clinched the World Series in 2013), and is now playing for the St. Louis Cardinals.

While he often spent his off-seasons in Fort Worth, it looks like he’s selling this mansion, which was built in 2005 and has some truly amazing finish-out. So much attention to detail in this home, with stained glass ceiling accents in the foyer, gorgeous stone floors, fantastic media room and loggia, and a cabana that is the perfect spot for watching baseball. This estate at 9517 Bella Terra Drive is marketed by Williams Trew Realtor Kendall Kostohryz for $2.9 million.
