John Henry, no not mythical railroad worker, that’s the Red Sox owner filed a demolition certificate applications for this 13,000 sq ft mansion he bought from Los Angeles Dodgers owner Frank McCourt. Set to be the site of his future mansion Henry created his dream home here and now one lucky buyer will own it. According to recent reporting from Forbes, the custom-made home is now listed for $15 million. That’s after a steep $10 million price cut, or nearly half price. After a successful start at his firm, J.W. Henry & Co., Henry purchased the Boston Red Sox for $380 million in 2002, followed by Liverpool FC for £300 million in 2010 — almost $400 million today. Henry’s been enjoying his investment, feeling more like a steward of his franchises than an owner.
