Babe Ruth’s Home in Boston on Sale for $1.65 million

Some real Yankee fans will be delighted to know that Babe Ruth’s suburban Boston house is for sale. The estate known as Home Plate Farm in Sudbury, Mass. has just been listed by Coldwell Banker for $1.65 million. The asking price is more than Ruth made in his entire playing career. The house originally belonged to the original Yankee Stadium. But Ruth did own it for four years and wintered there.

The property, located on a two-acre plot has undergone extensive renovations since the 1920s. The 5,124-square-foot, five-bedroom, 3 1/2-bathroom home has been thoroughly modernized with high-end appliances in the kitchen and large bathrooms with stone tiling. On the third floor is a room the current owners filled with pictures of the Bambino and other baseball memorabilia. The home at 558 Dutton was built in the early 19th century, but the baseball star lived there from 1922-1926.

This is a great old antique house, listing agent Scott Adamson of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage said. It’s got a ton of modern features, but I think Babe Ruth would still recognize it even today because it retains many of the original features.

The property also has a 5,000-square-foot barn zoned for residential and commercial use with horse stables, sub-divided office space, working garage bays, and a top-floor apartment with skylights, and full kitchen, bathroom and bedroom.

For someone who wants a beautiful home to live in, that’s great, Adamson added. If they are a baseball buff, they do get a slice of history, that’s for sure.

At the recently held Vintage Sports Collectibles Signature Auction, conducted by Heritage, eight balls signed by Ruth during a 1948 trip to a Ford dealership in Spencer, Iowa, sold for just over $216,000,  director Chris Ivy said. One ball in near-mint condition went for $77,000, while two others sold for just over $13,000. Unique 1921 Babe Ruth Home Run Baseball sold for $25,095. [Coldwell Banker]
