When Houston Astros great Jeff Bagwell and his former wife, Ericka, decided to part ways in 2012, it became necessary for them to sell their stunning home at 405 Timberwilde Lane in Memorial. But it took longer than expected.

The Memorial-area mansion recently was sold for $11.9 million, according to the Houston Chronicle. The original asking price was $15 million.

The 16,414-square-foot manse sits on 2.5 acres and includes a resort-sized swimming pool and a guest house that measures in at 1,750 square feet. The John Daugherty realtor showing the house when it first went on sale told CultureMap, "I think this is one of the most beautiful houses I've ever had the pleasure of listing."

The Chronicle says that after the house did not sell, Bagwell took it off of the market for a year before relisting it at $12 million.
