A Stamford, Connecticut home that sits on Jackie Robinson’s former six-acre estate is up for sale at $1.695 million.Robinson built the estate in 1955 when he played for the Brooklyn Dodgers. After his death it was divided into four lots.

The colonial house on 95 Cascade Road has 5,500 square feet of space and sits on 1.4 acres.

It features a private lakefront, a 4,000-bottle wine cellar, and, notably, a custom in-ground pool that’s meant to look like a baseball glove, according to the realtor.
