It didn’t take former Red Sox pitcher, Jonathan Papelbon, much to sell his penthouse near Fenway Park, just a $50 million dollar four-year contract with the Phillies. This Red Sox All-Star and wife Ashley recently put his 2,500 square foot home, which is located in both a historic and high-dollar area, up for sale for $3.1 million. The penthouse contains four bedrooms and three bathrooms as well as an elevator to the roof top decks. Don’t even picture tar or pebbled covered surfaces. These rooftop decks are finished in wood and one contains a hot tub. Both have magnificent views that would make anyone feel like king of the world.
It would be difficult to tell this was a home of a baseball player, unless you looked at the nursery, which has seats from Fenway Park, Red Sox memorabilia and sliding doors hiding the baby’s dressing area with windows saying “To the Locker Room.” Aside from that small feature, the penthouse is elegantly decorated with little indication that a sports star lives there.
The Papelbon’s purchased the penthouse in 2009 for $2.67 million. The abode has all the niceties you’d expect in a multi-million dollar penthouse. It offers a gourmet kitchen with the best in appliances and copper fixtures, hardwood or marble floors in every room, custom made cabinets all enclosed in a semi-open floor plan.
The kitchen has a dining island suitable for three and leads directly into the living room and staircase area. The living room done in tans and white has a bay window at the end of a shotgun style living room/dining area that allows light to brighten the room enhanced with a glass enclosed fireplace. Off from the living room is a geometric light toned hardwood staircase that has a black wrought iron railing.
Don’t expect to use many of the rooms to practice ballroom dancing, since most of them are rather narrow. The bedroom looks as though it sports enough room to open the doors of the built-in cabinets across from the bed. Just as the bedroom is narrow, so is the nursery and living room. However, the living room’s narrowness stems from dividing the room, via floor treatment, into a dining room/living room combination.
