Phillies left-hander Cliff Lee could be approaching the end of his baseball career, thanks to elbow issues. While Lee gives it one more shot to try to rehab his arm through rest, Lee must be looking ahead to an imminent end of his career. Or at least, his Phillies career. According to a report, Lee has put his Philadelphia home up for sale.
Kelly O'Shea of Philly.com reported on the listing, and writes about the home's specs:
Yesterday, Lee put his 4,166-square-foot home at 1706 Rittenhouse Square on the market for $6.9 million. Public records show that Lee purchased the home in January 2011 – after signing his second contract with the Phillies – for $4.85 million.
Per the listing, the condo has three bedrooms and three bathrooms, with 24-hour concierge services, an indoor pool, fitness center, and two-automated garage parking spaces. It features a gourmet eat-in kitchen, master suite with walk-in closet and marble bathroom, plus a large terrace with a view of the city skyline.
As I've mentioned before, the condo is also home to one of the more fascinating auto garages:
Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon also lived in 1706 Rittenhouse and he placed his home up for sale last season. It is unclear if Papelbon's condo sold or not. The website Curbed has an extended look at the condos at 1706 Rittenhouse in 2013.
