Even after The Great Bambino was infamously traded from the Red Sox to the Yankess, the slugger still called Boston home. Today, that home is now for sale. The estate is appropriately called Home Plate Farm and is located in Sudbury, MA which is about 20 miles outside of Boston and is currently for sale with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage agent, Scott Adamson.
The 5,124 square foot home has been updated since Ruth stayed there, but his aura still remains. In fact some burn marks on the hardwood floor are rumored to be from the ashes of Ruth’s cigar. According to Coldwell Banker agent, Scott Adamson, the kitchen has been fully renovated along with several other aspects of the home.
The original “house that Ruth built” also has 5 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, and working garage bays. A 5,000 square ft. barn on the property features horse stables, a working office space and a one-bedroom apartment above with full kitchen and bathroom.
