You may be aware that Chase Utley used to play for the Phillies. And that he doesn’t anymore. And that, because he doesn’t anymore, he doesn’t need a house in Gladwyne, Pennsylvania. Well, to be honest, no one needs a house in Gladwyne, Pennsylvania, but when you’re a rich athlete you’re likely to have one there.
Now Utley wants to sell his and, if you happen to need a house in Gladwyne, Pennsylvania, you can have Utley’s. At least if you have $3.495 million. Plus closing costs, I’m guessing. If Utley will break a dude’s leg to break up a double play, he sure as hell isn’t gonna meet you halfway on closing costs. I wouldn’t even ask, really.
The house itself looks pretty good. A story about it and a slideshow for it is here. The outside looks like a stockbroker might own it and that’s kind of boring, but inside it has a lot of clean lines and skews modern as opposed to all of that ornate and gross Mediterranean crap you often see in ballplayers’ houses. God, I hate that.
Bonus: Allen Iverson used to own it before Utley did. It’d be cool if, say, Ron Jaworski, Wilt Chamberlain and, I dunno, Ed Delahanty used to own it too, but it doesn’t look that old.
