Morning Headlines: Roy Halladay’s Former Newtown Square Home Has Been Sold
It appears the pictured swimming will be put to use this summer, just not by Roy Halladay. The Philadelphia Business Journal reports Halladay’s former Newtown Square home, a five-bedroom with an outdoor kitchen, pool, and pool house, has been bought for $1.96 million, well over the original $1.95 million it was listed for last December (that link leads to a gallery of the home, fyi).
Halladay and his wife have a permanent residence in Odessa, Florida, adds the Inquirer’s Lauren Mennen. Meanwhile in the city, Jonathan Papelbon still has his $6.9 million Rittenhouse condo on the market. Any takers?
