Starting pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, John Lackey, recently purchased a $2.05M Penthouse on Beacon Street in Boston’s Back Bay. According to the Wall Street Journal, it was originally priced at nearly $2.4M, although Lackey was fortunate enough to pick it up for 13% less than the asking price. He closed on the property on Nov. 1st of this year. Last Dec. Lackey signed a 5 year contract with the Sox for $82.5M.
The 2381 sq ft home has an open floor plan with large windows letting in an abundance of natural light. It also has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, granite counters and wood flooring in the kitchen, stainless steel appliances, formal dining and living rooms, tiled walls, built in bookshelves, vaulted ceilings in the master suite, a deck with views of Back Bay, and living room views of Charles River and Cambridge.
The WSJ does not mention an address or include any photos for the home, however the Boston Business Journal includes a Google Map that shows 334 Beacon Street. The sellers listing agent, Richard Egan, has the home listed on the Mass Realty site at the same address. The Condo Domain site also has the same pictures and what appear to be the same listing for the 334 Beacon address as Mass Realty. I’m not certain if the photos listed are of Lackey’s unit, although if not, they appear to be of a similar unit or possible model unit within the complex.
