Dodgers superstar and former Angels two-way player Shohei Ohtani has reportedly scooped up a secluded luxury home in La Cañada Flintridge for $7.85 million.
Completed in 2013 on just under an acre — and previously home to Adam Carolla — the 7,327-square-foot nod to mid-century modern and contemporary design has five bedrooms, seven bathrooms and amenities devoted to wellness, fitness and entertainment. Records show an LLC managed by Ohtani’s agent, Nez Balelo, bought the house May 15.
The Los Angeles Times first reported the sale, citing real estate records and an unidentified source. Southern California News Group has also been told the buyer is the Japanese baseball player by an unnamed source who was familiar with the sale but not involved in the deal.
All parties involved in the transaction have been tight-lipped.
Listing agent Peter Owens of Douglas Elliman Real Estate declined to comment through a spokesperson, citing non-disclosure agreements. Jeanne Valvo of Coldwell Banker Realty, who represented Ohtani, did not respond to a request for comment.
A promotional video for the house shows it sits at the end of a long driveway.
Inside, stone and wood-paneled accent walls and an abundance of glass adorn the open-plan living space. Floor-to-ceiling windows, clerestories and skylights flood the house with natural light and frame the sculptural branches of mature oaks that surround the property.
Outdoor amenities include a kitchen, infinity-edge pool, spa, fit pit and sport court.
The backyard is visible from a private balcony off the primary suite, which offers a seating area in the bedroom, a spa-style soaking tub in the bathroom and a large walk-in closet.
Records show the seller is Carolla, who bought the home in 2018 for $7.327 million.

The couple filed for divorce in May 2021 after nearly 19 years of marriage and finalized it on Jan. 24.
People magazine reported that Carolla, 59, agreed to pay the mother of his 17-year-old twin son and daughter an equalization settlement of $4 million, which included the sale of their family home.
Carolla, 59, dropped the price in October to $8.35 million. It closed at $500,000 below asking price, just five months after Ohtani left the Angels and signed a 10-year, $700 million contract with the Dodgers.
Ohtani, 29, played six seasons with the Angels as a designated hitter and pitcher. He won two American League MVP awards, making him the greatest MLB “two-way” player since Babe Ruth in 1919.
