Sox Owner’s House Comes in 2nd

The Town of Brookline recently assessed the house of Red Sox majority partner, John Henry, at $19,485,200. The new valuation represents an increase of more than $6 million over the house’s valuation by assessors a year earlier and more than $10 million from two years ago. The increases in valuation resulted because the Cottage Street home was previously under construction.  A recent call to the Brookline Assessor’s office, however, confirmed the home is now assessed as 100% complete.

The house is brand-new, ground-up construction, containing the largest amount of living space of any Brookline home, and of course it features many luxury finishes. Yet my analysis of public records show it as only the second most valuable home in Brookline Whose home came in first? The Yankees…just kidding. The highest valued house according to Brookline assessors was Reebok founder Paul Fireman’s $21 million-assessed abode. As Henry’s house is now complete, it is unlikely that even a change in management would cause it to finish first in assessed value.

Below are couple of details about the home:

Bedrooms: 6

Bathrooms: 9 full, 6 half

Exterior: Stone

Fuel Type: Gas

Living Area: 22,758 square feet.

Lot Size: 2.61 Acres

Garage Size;  1,534 square feet.
