Ryan Howard Sells His Incredible Mansion for a Record Amount

Ryan Howard made about $190 million during his Major League Baseball career, which is enough to buy one of the most amazing houses you've ever seen. He sold that house on Thursday for the most money a home in residential Tampa has ever been sold for, $16.5 million.

Howard had the home built four years ago on 200 feet of private beach that he purchased for $3.5 million, according to the Tampa Bay Times, and sold the house Thursday to real estate investor Ben Mallah as a 15-year anniversary gift for his wife. 

Must be nice.

The previous record sale in Tampa was $11.18 million two years ago, so the former MVP is now the undisputed real estate king in Tampa.

About the house: It sits on two-and-a-half acres and includes some ridiculous features, like a moat, bowling alley, two-story library and Howard's trophy room, which was full of his accomplishments from his career as a Phillie.

WFTS in Tampa posted a gallery in which you can see more than 100 photos inside Howard's home, but here are some of the best ones that display just how incredible this house really is.

Now retired from baseball, and a venture capitalist with Seventysix Capital, Howard hasn't given any indication about where he may be moving, but it'll be hard to find a place as beautiful as the one he just left. Howard will, however, be back in Philadelphia on July 14 as the Phillies will hold a retirement ceremony in his honor.
