Kevin Garnett, now of the Nets but forever beloved in the Boston area for reviving the Celtics, has just put his 11,000 square foot Concord mansion on the market.
The contemporary home, designed by Machado and Silvetti Associates, overlooks Howes's Pond from its Fenway Park sized, 13-acre perch on 75 Buttricks Hill Drive.
The onetime Celtics power forward and his wife Brandi are looking for a tidy but hardly outrageous profit, with the listing price $225,000 more than what they bought their Concord address for in 2007.
Here's a description from the press release put out by Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in New England, which is selling the house for the Garnetts:
The home, which offers more than 11,000 square feet of living space, features a master bedroom suite with an oversized dressing room, a spacious kitchen with custom finishes and a bright dining area surrounded by walls of windows, as well as a fully finished lower level with wine cellar, media room and gym. The property is sited on nearly 13 acres and includes five bedrooms, 5 full bathrooms, two half bathrooms, and a four-car garage.
The five bedroom, five bath house was apparently highlighted in Metropolitan Home and Architectural Record, and awarded a Citation for Excellence in Architecture from the Boston Society of Architects.
Not alone, several other former Boston sports stars are also trying to unload their mansions, including Curt Schilling, who has struggled for years to sell his Medfield manse. After buying it from Drew Bledsoe for $4.5 million, it is now on the market for under $3 million.
Schilling, who is struggling financially after the collapse of his video game startup, will be selling off some of contents of his Medfield home in a sale set for this coming Saturday.
Good luck Kevin!
