Cliff Lee Is Selling His Rittenhouse Condo

Voila_Capture 2015-04-21_09-00-36_AM

Cliff Lee, in the final year of his five-year, $120 million contract (my God time flies), has put his 1706 Rittenhouse condo up for sale. Want it? Sure ya do! It’s a steal at $6.9 million.

From… which is engaging in some smart content marketing with stuff like this:

Rittenhouse Square is, of course, a byword for high-end living in Center City, and this home is no exception. You should know by now how I go gaga for a beautiful condo on the Ritt, and this one is nothing short of spellbinding. With an address directly on the Square and a near-perfect Walk Score, there’s no better way to experience everything that this gorgeous, big ol’ city has to offer.

This three bedroom condo has three bathrooms. It’s a full-floor residence sprawling across over 4,100 square feet. Every exposure is perfect here – north, south, east, and west. Enjoy direct elevator access right to your front door!

So many memories in this place. SO MANY. Lee bought it in 2011. For a time that summer, Hunter Pence was rumored to be moving in with Lee until he got set up on his own (he didn’t– Pence’s parents came into town during a road trip and set up a place for him). Later, Lee was spotted playing Wiffle Ball in the park with his son, and became neighbors with Ryan Howard and Jonathan Papelbon, turning 1706 into sort of a Phillies escrow account.

There’s nothing to read into the listing – Lee can’t get traded right now because Ruben Amaro waited too long and now Lee is hurt – but there’s a 0.0% chance Lee re-signs with the hapless Phillies next year… if he doesn’t retire. This is just another sad end for a former star who’s nearing the end of his monstrous contract as the Phils diddle away into obscurity. A few more pics after the jump.

    Cliff Lee’s tenure here was a bust.

    There’s really nothing at all in sports world that you could possibly talk about? Maybe a review of college players that have visited the Eagles? Current performance of past Sixers in the playoffs to justify our trades?

      Bruh, you new here?

    I remember when Cliff Lee was on Texas, he pitched them into the World Series. Of course they lost, because they’re the Rangers.

    He’s also from Arkansas, which borders Texas. And Louisiana. I went to LSU.

      Sean, its time to get it together. No more sitting at home posting comments about yourself while waiting for your Pitcher’s Pub shift to start. Time to man up and be the best dam bar tender you can be.
