Housing crash What crash
Red Sox hurler Curt Schilling just put his marvy Medfield manse on the market yesterday for a whopping $8 million – some $3.5 million more than he paid for it back in 2003.
Schilling and his wife, Shonda, who first announced they were selling the house last fall (before No. 38 signed a one-year extension with the Sox), finally listed their 20-room Colonial on 25-plus acres yesterday.
The 11,000-square-foot, three-story house with attached eight-car garage, is assessed for $3.9 million. The Schillings bought it from former New England Patriot Drew Bledsoe for $4.5 million. Bledsoe had originally listed the property at $9 million.
It’s a fabulous house but its not the house we want to live in for the rest of our lives, Shonda told us last fall. I’d really like to be in a neighborhood for the kids. And we know its not going to sell in a week so we thought wed put it on the market now and see what happens.

The listing is being marked by Hammond Residential (hmmm, I thought Gibson Sothebys was the Offical Red Sox Real Estate Agency)
Anyway.., BUY this house with us and save $195,000 from our commission refund!
