Babe Ruth's Boston home listed for 1.65m dollars
New York, May 8 (ANI): Legendary baseball player Babe Ruth's suburban Boston home, where he lived after he had been sent to the New York Yankees, is on the market for 1.65 million dollars.
The asking price for the estate known as Home Plate Farm in Sudbury, Mass, is more than Ruth made in his entire playing career.
Ruth, who for decades held the major league career home run record with 714, lived in the home from 1922 to 1926, according to broker Scott Adamson, of Coldwell Banker Residential brokerage.
"This is a great old antique house," the New York Daily News quoted Adamson as saying on Monday, estimating the home dates to about 1800.
"It's got a ton of modern features, but I think Babe Ruth would still recognize it even today because it retains many of the original features," he added.
Ruth played for the Red Sox from 1914 to 1919, then for the Yankees from 1920 to 1934.
His playing salary over a 22-year career was less than 911,000 dollars, according to baseball-reference.com.
The 5,000-square-foot, five-bedroom, 3 1/2-bathroom home on a two-acre plot has undergone extensive renovations since the 1920s, including "a chef's dream kitchen, richly detailed family room, a sunny master suite with vaulted ceilings" and more, the listing says.
But some of Ruth's personal touches remain. One room even has burn marks on the floor where Ruth is said to have flicked his cigar ashes, Adamson said.
The property also includes a 5,000-square-foot barn with stables, office space, garage bays and a one-bedroom apartment with a full kitchen and bathroom. (ANI)
