Mookie Betts buys Chip Kelly’s Encino home for $7.6 million

Fresh off a World Series victory, Dodgers star Mookie Betts is treating himself to a new house. The four-time All-Star just dropped $7.6 million on an Encino mansion owned by UCLA football coach Chip Kelly, according to a person not authorized to discuss the sale.

It’s a nice profit for Kelly, who paid $7 million for the home two years ago, records show.

Betts will have a bit of a commute to work, as the property is about 20 miles from Dodger Stadium. Earlier this year, the outfielder inked a massive 12-year extension with the team worth $365 million — the largest contract in Dodgers history and one that’ll keep him in Los Angeles until 2032.

The house spans about 9,300 square feet on a long, thin lot, with nine bedrooms and 10 bathrooms across two stories. A motor court with two garages approaches the crisp black-and-white exterior.

The property includes a main house, guesthouse, swimming pool and sports court.
