Baseball Legend Jeff Kent Selling $3M Austin Home With Giant Waterslide

It has a whole mini-waterpark, really. And a batting cage. Of course.

Retired San Francisco Giants great Jeff Kent is selling his custom-made, 8,794-square-foot Austin home overlooking the Colorado River—and it includes a mini-waterpark and slide by the same people who designed Texas' Schlitterbahn parks.

According to, the place really does sound like a mini-Schlitterbahn, which has a lot of the same features: a variety of swimming areas and multiple levels, a swim-up bar, catch pools, and caves. And, of course, the slide (which looks terrifying, as it banks over a precipitous hillside, but maybe that's just us).

The six-bedroom, seven-and-a-half bathroom home also has a batting cage and a large, baseball-shaped light fixture in what looks like an informal dining area.

Kent, who played with the Houston Astros later in his career, retired to Austin with his family several years ago.
