This week, we step inside the home of Washington Nationals All-Star First Baseman Ryan Zimmerman.
The Zimmerman’s definitely adhere to the old adage, “home is what you make it.” When Ryan and wife Heather were looking for a place, they wanted something they could mold into their perfect place to decompress and relax in the offseason. And the resulting home is pure awesomeness!
While the custom built backyard – complete with an incredibly designed pool – is a playground for the kids, the inside is where the grown-ups can have their fun. The game room with pool table and table bocce are cool and all, but around the corner there’s something that’s way more practical. The Zimmerman’s turned their unfinished closet into a climate controlled wine cellar – perfect for those few minutes at night when the couple can relax and talk to each other; a welcomed change from arguments with a two-year old on the merits of daily bathing. But they weren’t finished customizing their domain.
The Zimmerman’s turned another unfinished storage room into a workout facility for Ryan to have everything he needs without having to spend time commuting to the stadium for his offseason workouts. With one child and another on the way, having a gym steps away allows Ryan to spend the most amount of time with his young family he can before the season begins again.
The last stop on the tour is the movie theater – because a home like this would not be complete without one. Watch the video above to see it all!
