Curt Schilling, ESPN analyst and former Phillies All-Star pitcher from 1992 to 2000, is in serious hot water financially. A video game company he started went bankrupt last year, resulting in a lawsuit against him that claims he knew the company would tank but kept that information hidden. Clearly hurting for cash, Schilling has relisted his home outside of Boston.
In better times for him personally, he put the 20-room, 8,000-square-foot estate — which he bought from Drew Bledsoe — up for sale for $8 million. That price became hugely improbable with the collapse of the housing market, so he reduced the ask to $5 million, then $4.9, then $4.5 before he took it off the market at the end of 2009. About a year ago, he put it back on the market for $3.45 million. No dice. In April of this year, he reduced the price again to $3.2 million. Nothing. It was briefly off of the market, but now it’s back — for a rather sad $2,999,999.
The desperation to unload the house is palpable — even more so given the estate sale Schilling is having, according to the Inquirer.
That sale includes items you might find at a neighborhood yard sale: candlesticks, DVDs including The West Wing, video games including World of Warcraft, and a punching bag.
The house itself is more exciting than its contents, that’s for sure. Check out these amenities:
- eight-car garage
- batting cage
- outdoor space for basketball, tennis and ice skating
- beach volleyball space
- putting green
- grilling deck
- game room
- home theater
- wet bar with soda and beer taps
- hot tub
- wine room
The estate is on 26 acres.
