Eric Hosmer residence in Newton listed for $6.6 million
Chicago Cubs first baseman Eric Hosmer has put his multimillion dollar Newton mansion on the market.
Hosmer, whom the Red Sox cut in December, listed his six-bedroom Colonial for $6,575,000 after purchasing it for $6,150,000 in September. The home has a mitt-full of bathrooms: five full and two half.
The 8,081-square-foot home rests on 1.03 acres at 35 Wykeham Road, just half a mile from the West Newton commuter rail station and right off the Massachusetts Turnpike.
The home, originally constructed in 1936, was renovated in 2018 and features a wine cellar, fitness room, and three fireplaces.
The gray and white kitchen, which has a granite island so big it could easily span the distance between the foul line and the dugout, looks out to a back patio on one side and the grassy front yard on the other.
The mansion also affords a lot of space for hosting après-dinner, including a living room that stretches into an enclosed porch lined with windows.
The upstairs holds five of the home’s six bedrooms, including a primary suite that has a bathroom with a soaking tub that could melt away the soreness of even the longest stretch catch.
The yard is as lush as a baseball outfield come spring. Unlike an outfield, the home is guarded by two dogwood trees that put on a show of beautiful flowers in the spring.
Out back, the patio offers a grill, a firepit, plenty of space for seating and entertaining, and access to the living room and the three-car garage.
Manny Sarkis of The Sarkis Team at Douglas Elliman real estate has the listing.
