Reebok Founder’s Almost 27,000-Square-Foot Mansion in Boston Sells for $23M
Just shy of a year after listing his longtime home dubbed Woodland Manor, Reebok founder Paul Fireman has parted ways with the massive property. The athletic wear visionary and his wife commissioned Shope Reno Wharton to create the 26,623-square-foot manse in the late 1990s and it was completed in 1999, right before the Ryder Cup took place next door. Sitting on seven prestigious acres with downtown Boston just 5 miles away, it is a New England nirvana where one can watch the leaves change in peace. Along with enjoying the world-famous foliage this autumn, the new owner may also take delight in knowing that he or she got quite a discount on the one-of-a-kind property. First listed last fall for $38 million, the deal has closed for $23 million.
The first thing any Reebok-loving, workout junkie might want to do at this lush estate is put on some sneakers and take a jog through the picturesque grounds. Each acre is landscaped to perfection and it creates an utterly serene sight for all to take in from the expansive terraces while working from home or having a sunset happy hour.
Inside, vast and grand spaces are capable of garnering the same feeling of awe. In fact, Fireman and his wife took full advantage of the home’s size by hosting the finest parties there in pre-COVID times. Even being low-key is extravagant at this eight-bedroom manor, however, as staying home with family can include playing in the billiards room or tasting new wines in the wine cellar.
