Former Red Sox team member Eric Hosmer — he recently decamped for a first baseman gig with the Chicago Cubs — has listed his Massachusetts home on the open market this month. The one-acre estate, which offers six bedrooms and six baths across over 8,000 sq. ft. of interiors, is currently listed with an asking price of $6.575 million.
The house makes a formal first impression, with a plain of groomed landscaping leading up to a symmetrical Colonial façade that fits in without a wrinkle with more historic neighbors in Newton. It’s a 2018 build, but carries off its 19th – or early 20th-century conceit very well as it offers the efficiency and conveniences of a newer residence.
Details at work in this house include sash windows, dark-finished oak plank floors, fireplaces, a curving staircase, keystone arches, and fireplaces. The living area is wonderfully open, with a winter sunroom space that’s perfect for passive solar and snowy afternoon reading. Numbering among the home’s specialty rooms are an office, and gym.
