It’s a good house. Not great, even if people want to say it’s better than it is, and it’s probably thought of as nicer than it is simply because it’s in New York. But it is really good. And classy. Apropos of its owner:
Bernie Williams took to the batter’s box during the New York Yankees’ Old Timers’ Day over the weekend, but off the field the retired outfielder is looking to pitch. Williams, a five-time All-Star and four-time World Series champion with the Bronx Bombers, has put his North Castle mansion on the market for a cool $3.5 million.
I’ve noticed a pattern with these ballplayer houses: most rooms look like they’ve never been lived in and then you come across a couple where you know they were all the time. The couple of rooms where the owner told the real estate agent’s stagers “Nope, not taking my stuff out of here. This is my room.”
For Williams it’s clearly the recording studio and the room with the blue leather furniture. Everything else he probably just walks through quickly to get to the recording studio and the room with the blue leather furniture.
