October -- that time of the year when it starts cooling down, baseball is wrapping up and football is just kicking off.
Russ Lyon Sotheby's International Realty compiled this list of homes perfect for the person who loves the game. With any one of these properties, you can enjoy virtually any sport from the comfort of your own yard.
This three-bedroom four bathroom home is cozy, but the property is sprawling and would give any slacker some real motivation. There's an exercise room, a sauna, plus a poolside putting green. After all that working out and putting practice, you could grill something up on the built-in BBQ and relax by the fire pit taking in the mountain views.
This six-bedroom ten bathroom mansion is the ultimate home for an athlete. The backyard has a batting cage, baseball diamond and a football field. Seriously. If that's not your idea of a good time, there's a heated diving pool to work on your butterfly stroke. Still not impressed? Get yourself a few horses -- or five -- to occupy the stalls and the arena which come with this nearly three-acre property.
Work on your tennis game in this four-bedroom, six-bathroom estate. The tennis court also doubles as a badminton court and a place to play half-court basketball. Plus, plenty of privacy with a gated drive.
