Lincecum buys posh new pad in Seattle
San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum has a new place to hang his baseball cap when he comes home.
According to the Seattle Times, the two-time Cy Young Award winner celebrated his team’s World Series victory by going out and buying a new condo on the 28th floor of the luxury Escala tower in downtown Seattle, right across the street from the Dahlia Lounge restaurant and just a few blocks from the Seattle Aquarium.
Lincecum, who pitched at the University of Washington and Renton’s Liberty High School, paid $1.575 million for the 2,442-square-foot unit with a 500-square-foot deck on the building’s north side.
Timmy’s posh new pad (3 BR/2.5 BA) includes custom-designed Italian cabinet systems in the kitchen and bathroom along with wool carpeting. The place has got a wine cave, fitness center with lap pool, and its own “members only” social club. The lobby is secured 24/7 (so don’t be thinking you can just stroll on up the elevator and knock on #2806).

Believe it or not, Big Time Timmy Jim’s condo isn’t even the biggest unit at Escala, or the most expensive. Public records show that a dozen buyers have paid more, topped by the $5.95 million that Joel Diamond (son of the late parking-lot mogul, Joe) paid in July for a 30th-floor penthouse.
