SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- After nearly four years on the market, former Padres outfielder Matt Kemp has finally sold his Poway mansion.

The Los Angeles Times, citing real estate records, reported Monday that Kemp’s home in the Poway Heritage community was sold for $4.3 million.

Kemp purchased the home in 2013 for $9.075 million, the Times reported, citing the San Diego County recorder.

In December 2016, Kemp put his mansion on the market with a list price of $11.5 million. By early 2017, Kemp lowered his asking price to just under $8 million.

The nearly 16,000-square-foot mansion includes a home theater, wine vault, cigar lounge, gym, barber shop, swimming pool with pool house, outdoor kitchen with pizza oven and a view overlooking the Maderas Golf Club.

Recent real estate records obtained by The Times showed Kemp's asking price was recently listed at $4.999 million before the property finally sold.

The Padres acquired Kemp in a multi-player deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers in December 2014. The three-time All-Star was eventually dealt to the Atlanta Braves in July 2016.

After a trade brought him back to the Dodgers for the 2018 season, Kemp was dealt to the Cincinnati Reds. Following a release from the Reds early in the 2019 season, Kemp signed with the New York Mets but was then let go a short time later.

Kemp signed a free agent deal with the Miami Marlins in December 2019.
