Jonathan Papelbon Closes Door on Red Sox, Lists All-Star Boston Penthouse

Pursuitist Luxury Best Luxury Blog

As he transitions from the Red Sox to the Phillies after signing with Philadelphia this offseason, esteemed MLB closer Jonathan Papelbon is looking to pitch his Boston, Massachusetts penthouse. Curbed reports that the four-time All-Star and wife Ashley have put their brownstone abode up for sale, and are asking $3.1 million for the four-bedroom, three-bathroom property.

Purchased by the couple in 2009 for $2.67 million, the Papelbon penthouse sits less than two miles away from Fenway Park, along the historic and affluent stretch known as Beacon Street. The home sports a sizeable 2,500-square-foot floor plan that features hardwood and marble flooring, custom cabinetry, trey ceilings and other finishes throughout. A gourmet kitchen includes top-tier appliances and copper fixtures, while one of the bedrooms, a nursery presumably for the Papelbons’ infant son, is decked out in Red Sox memorabilia – two Fenway seats included. The penthouse also includes rooftop access (elevator included) to a pair of decks, one of which has a hot tub overlooking Charles River Basin and the surrounding downtown areas.

The quickest to 200 saves in Major League Baseball history, Papelbon quickly established himself as a fan favorite and one of the big league’s best finishers with a breakout season in 2006. He played an instrumental role in the Red Sox’s World Series run in 2007; however, after a remarkable seven seasons in Boston, Papelbon will be donning the Philadelphia red, white and blue after signing a four-year, $50 million contract with the Phillies in November.

The listing is presented by Nick Reynolds and Ron Ifrah of Longwood Residential.
