This home wasbuilt in the late ’90s, and the craftsmanship is just heads and tails above what’s being built today, saysBrian Kusmer of The Kusmer Group.

The home also has a wet bar and a great room. The home’s beige walls blend nicelywith the desert surroundings.

Speaking of surroundings, Del Negro and his wife were very particular about the landscaping on their property. Kusmer says it’s one of the home’s most breathtaking qualities.

All of the landscape, the front and back, is how they put their signature on the property, Kusmer says. It’s close to a million-dollar landscaping project if you try and duplicate it.

Del Negro hasn’t wona ring with any of the teams he’s played on or coached, but if this sale goes without a hitch, he’ll earn a championship-size payday. According to Kusmer, the next owner will get a slam-dunk of a home.

It’s in the best lotin the subdivision, Kusmer says. A lot of the subdivision backs into roads, and this street doesn’t back into any roads. There is no better house.
