Home Plate Farm House Babe Ruth Sudbury MA
In 1919 one of the most famous names in baseball history came to New York when Babe Ruth, the seemingly indomitable rising star of the Boston Red Sox, was sold to the New York Yankees. Once in New York, Babe began to set and shatter records at an astonishing rate: Babe’s .847 slugging average was a Major League record until 2001 and his 60 homeruns in 1927 was a record that would stand for 34 years.  His 22-year-long career was highlighted by seven World Series championships and the establishment of a lasting dynasty that forever changed the face of Major League Baseball.

Even a superstar needs a place to sleep, though. When Babe wasn’t literally knocking it out of the park, he and his family were kicking back at Home Plate Farm, this green clapboard farmhouse in Sudbury, Massachusetts. The 5,000 square foot home has been renovated with modern-day conveniences, including a gourmet kitchen with cherry wood cabinets, a spacious sunroom, and cheerful living areas with exposed beams, stately Rumford fireplaces, and extensive built-in cabinetry.

However, the house is still a place ‘The Bambino’ would recognize, with many of its original features still intact: according to the realtor, the living room floor still bears burn marks from Babe’s cigar ashes. The 2 acre property also includes a 5,000-square-foot barn with stables, an office, a workshop, and a fully equipped one-bedroom apartment. Now’s the time to get in on this piece of history! The property is offered for $1.65 million.
