Baseball Star Eric Hosmer Lists Classic Brick Boston-Area Home Amidst Move to Chicago Cubs

Pro baseball player Eric Hosmer, and his wife Kacie McDonnell Hosmer, Fox Business host for Mansion Global, have put their Massachusetts home up to bat. It’s a quintessential New England brick home right near Boston, which makes sense as Hosmer played for the Red Sox in the 2022 season. As Hosmer now heads to play for the Chicago Cubs, it’s time for them to part ways with the 8,081-square-foot home. The pair is asking $6.575 million for it.

Getting a taste of residential life in a few cities since his MLB career began, Hosmer previously played for the Kansas City Royals for six years and was part of the team that won them the World Series in 2015. Later, he played for the San Diego Padres for before heading east. Signing to play for the Red Sox in August of 2022, the couple bought their West Newton Hill digs in September of 2022, giving them a chance to experience almost all of the magical Massachusetts seasons.

Built in 1936 but renovated in 2018, the home has been beautifully upgraded to reflect the finest conveniences of today. Elegant moldings carry through the main living space downstairs, which includes a sunroom area or “Snow Globe Room” to create a dreamy place to engage with nature. While the dining room reflects a more traditional home, the kitchen is sleek and minimal yet provides ample space for entertaining.

Athletes need their rest too so there is certainly no shortage of available bedrooms in the home. Holding a total of six bedrooms and seven bathrooms, the house had space for the couple and their child and then some. The primary suite covers almost every base, boasting a relaxing bath and a massive walk-in closet.

Amenities of the home include a full fitness center, a wine cellar and an additional storage room. Look to The Sarkis Team at Douglas Elliman for the home run listing.
