Babe Ruth’s Boston Home Sees Price Chop, How’s this for a souvenir: the former home of legendary baseball great Babe Ruth.
Before being sold to baseball’s so-called Evil Empire, the New York Yankees, Ruth spent five seasons with the Boston Red Sox in the early part of his career. During that time he lived in a green clapboard farmhouse aptly named Home Plate Farm. Located in Sudbury, MA, the historic property originally hit the market in 2012 for $1.65 million but has since relisted at $1.325 million.
Despite being extensively updated, parts of the 5,200-square-foot home still carry Ruth’s memory. Take the living room floor, for example, where burn marks from the Babe’s cigar ashes can still be found. Other highlights of Ruth’s former estate include a gourmet kitchen with cherry wood cabinets, Rumford fireplaces and custom cabinetry. Also found on the premises of the 2-acre property is a 5,000-square-foot barn with an office, a workshop and a fully equipped one-bedroom apartment.
