Former Red Sox 1st Baseman’s Massachusetts Mansion on the Market

It's a stunning brick mansion that needs a new family after Red Sox fan favorite first baseman Eric Hosmer was cut from Boston in December of 2022. He is now playing for the Chicago Cubs starting the 2023 major league baseball season, so it's no surprise that he needs to bid farewell to his beautiful suburban Boston home.
It's an 8,000-square-foot brick Colonial built in the 1930s, fully renovated in 2018, and listed by The Sarkis Team of Douglas Elliman. It's a six-bed, seven-bath stunner sitting on a lushly landscaped acre surrounded by trees for privacy and beauty.
It includes a fitness room and wine cellar, as any mansion should have. It's also got spa-like bathrooms and lots of closet space with the most precious nursery. I just love the winding staircase, and any home with three fireplaces is a winner for anyone.
This Newton gem is listed at $6,575,000, and as the listing says, there's a historic charm to it with an incredibly contemporary style that flaunts modern upgrades. I love the sunny living space, and don't even get me started on the chef's kitchen. This home belongs in a magazine for sure as perfect suburbia.
It's not pretentious at all, just dreamy and divine. Of course, the new owners can totally make it their own, so if a modern twist isn't your style and a more New England feel is how you see yourself, the home works perfectly.
So are you ready to see it? Let's take a tour of 35 Wykeham Road.
