Video tour: Mets star Brandon Nimmo finds his $5 million Long Island home


New York Mets centerfielder Brandon Nimmo is putting roots down on Long Island.

Fresh off of signing an eight-year, $162 million contract with the Amazins during the offseason, Nimmo has found a slice of paradise in Old Westbury. The Mets’ leadoff hitter closed on a $5 million estate in the heart of the village on March 9, The Real Deal reported.

The newly renovated, five-bedroom ranch-style home sits near the Old Westbury Golf & Country Club. Nimmo, 29, originally from Cheyenne, Wyoming, purchased the home for about $205,000 over the asking price, according to Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty.

The updates include new windows and doors, a new roof, new marble flooring, a new kitchen and seven new bathrooms. Set on two acres dotted with specimen trees and full of lush green lawns, the home features an expansive backyard deck that overlooks an inviting in ground pool.

Inside the home, there are two fireplaces and several rooms with vaulted ceilings.

Nimmo signed his contract extension with the Mets in December, following his most productive season yet with the club. A member of the organization since the Mets made him their first-round draft choice in 2011, Nimmo hit .274 and had a stellar .367 on base percentage in 2022.

He led the National League in triples with seven, while slugging 16 home runs and tallying 64 RBIs out of the leadoff spot in the lineup. His wins above replacement (WAR) rating was 5.1 for the season, as he was a major contributor in New York’s 101-win season.

This is the second multimillion dollar Long Island home purchased by a Met in the area in recent months. Pitcher Max Scherzer bought an Old Brookville mansion for $5 million in December.

In both sales, the listing agent was Lois Kirschenbaum, leader of The Lois Kirschenbaum Team at Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty.
