Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard has placed his Blue Bell home on the market, perhaps anticipating his change of scenery that is sure to occur after his albatross of a multi-million, multi-year contract is up next season.

Howard, who also has property in the city in Rittenhouse, tried to sell his Blue Bell home in 2014, but was unsuccessful, writes Matthew Sheridan of Philadelphia Magazine.

After a significant price cut, 501 Deerfield Court is back on the market. The home has six bedrooms, seven full and one-half bathrooms and 8,921 square feet of interior space, and was refurbished last year for $500,000.

“The first floor has hardwood flooring and a gourmet kitchen with handcrafted cabinets, granite counters, and a butler’s pantry with copper sink and wine cooler between the kitchen and dining room,” writes Sheridan. “The home also comes with a walkout basement, a gym, a movie theater and a sauna.”

Outside, a manicured lawn frames the house’s stone exterior. In the back, there’s a large slate and brick patio, a pool, pool house and fire pit.

The home also has a three-car attached garage and a three-car detached garage that has a finished area with a full bath above it.

The property is listed at $2,690,000 by Amy Brooks at Bristol Real Estate.
