Eric Hosmer, an American professional baseball first baseman for the Chicago Cubs of Major League Baseball, and his wife Kacie McDonnald Hosmer, who worked as a host on Fox News for Mansion Global, are selling their timeless New England brick colonial in the heart of West Newton Hill. 35 Wykeham Road in Newton, MA is listed for sale at $6.575 million by Manny Sarkis, co-founder of The Sarkis Team at Douglas Elliman.
Eric Hosmer has played in MLB for the Kansas City Royals, San Diego Padres, and the Boston Red Sox. On January 13, 2023, he signed a one-year contract with the Chicago Cubs and that’s the reason why he will have to leave the Newton home behind.
The 8,000-square-foot brick colonial was built in the 1930s and renovated in 2018 by local custom builder Thoughtforms. It includes six bedrooms and various amenities such as a playroom, gym, and wine cellar. There are three fireplaces and a “Snow Globe Room” which is a sunroom-type space with floor-to-ceiling, rounded windows on each side.
Off the foyer is the living room, which is designed to feel comfortable and relaxed. A distinguished office with a fireplace and custom built-ins leads the way to a chic dining room.
A modern chef’s kitchen features an expansive island and seating area with spectacular views of the vast grounds. Outfitted with high-end appliances, it caters to an avid at-home cook who enjoys experimenting and getting creative with new recipes. A spacious family room adjoins the designer kitchen.
The second floor features 5 bedrooms, including a luxurious primary suite with a bath and oversized walk-in closet.
The lower level includes a fantastic bonus room, wine cellar, fitness room, and storage room.
