This modified Colonial-style in the greater Boston area is on the market courtesy of present owner David ‘Papi’ Ortiz. Ortiz—who retired from professional baseball in 2016—is asking $5.495 million for the property, a 7,700 square-footer nestled in a particularly sylvan corner of Weston, Massachusetts, an affluent bedroom community west of the city.
The L-shaped home features a turret entry and exposed chimney, both in stone. Inside, plentiful oak, stone tile, and the occasional ornamental support column define the open-concept common area. The kitchen transitions neatly into a booth breakfast nook, a semi-rotunda alcove with a dome ceiling and diminutive chandelier. Tones throughout the six-bedroom, six-bath home vary widely, and the media/entertainment room in the basement sports exposed brick. The icing on the cake? A bit of reclaimed material from Fenway was used in the build.
The grounds extend to 2.15 acres. A large yard, pool, and spa are among the outdoor recreation amenities.
