John Henry To Tear Down Former McCourt Mansion, Build Even Bigger Mansion
To the Red Sox acquiring J.D. Drew and the Dodgers signing Derek Lowe and Nomar Garciaparra, we can add this personal note to the list of Dodger-Red Sox links: John Henry has purchased Frank McCourt's former Brookline, Mass. home, a seven-bedroom, 11-bath mansion built in the 1930's, with a 5,000 square foot guest house. Henry is planning on replacing it with an even larger home, after spending $16 million to purchase it. Such are the fortunes of real estate these days: McCourt's asking price was $25M.
