Sign of a Deal? Jonathan Papelbon Strikes $500,000 Off of His Luxury Condo
Few things fuel baseball’s hot stove faster than a player listing his home in the market where he plays. It’s interesting that, mere hours after reports start to circulate that Jonathan Papelbon could be heading back to the Boston Red Sox, his condo at 1706 Rittenhouse is now back on the market and priced aggressively to sell. When we say aggressively, we mean $500,000 cheaper than Cliff Lee’s, which is on the 20th floor.
Originally listed back in December for a hair under $7 million, Papelbon is now seeking $6,400,000 for the luxury condo that boasts terrific views, a private elevator and an unbeatable location. Custom features include a fish tank, gas fireplace, a smart home system by Crestron and electronic window treatments. Those 360-degree panoramic views just get so sunny, you know?
It will be fun to see how each situation ends up shaking out. The team is terrible, but Papelbon is actually pitching pretty well these days, even if he doesn’t “feel like a Phillie.” Will the Phils be able to trade him? While Philly isn’t Paris, his home is in one of the premier buildings in the city. Will it sell or is another price chop in its future?
