Don't let that $625,000 price tag fool you. To buy former St. Louis Cardinals ace Chris Carpenter's 3,335-square-foot home, you'll need to pony up another hundred thou' or so just for the country-club membership.

Just like all the residents of the BallenIsles Country Club, Carpenter bought a membership in order to live on his quarter acre in a house with four bedrooms, four full bathrooms, $50,000 sound system and private pool. A basic tennis membership costs $65,000, according to the Los Angeles Times, while access to the full clubhouse, including three championship golf courses, starts at $120,000.

Want a peek at the Cy Young Award winner's Florida pad? Here's the video, which has already been viewed more than 5,400 times:

Carpenter bought the house in 2003 before spring training started nearby in Jupiter, Florida, according to the Times.

If Florida is a little far for you, Carpenter is also selling his west-county mansion for $3.5 million.
