Michael Phelps has reportedly sold his Baltimore townhouse, according to TMZ. The swimming sensation—if you've been living under a rock, he's just earned the title of the most decorated Olympian of all time—bought the property for $1.699M in 2007 and listed it for $1.42M in March. Before addressing the cut-and-dry sales stats, let's take a look around, shall we?
The 4,000-square-foot, three-bedroom condo is one in a row of prim townhouses at an upscale community in Fells Point, the city's cute harbor neighborhood, and, uh, sports a slick, stylish staircase, views of the marina from an upper-floor balcony, and thoroughly modern interiors comprised of brick, steel, glass, and gleaming hardwood. Sure, that brick wall might be the perfect backdrop for Phelps 19-and-counting medals, but rumor has it that this bionic man-fish has been hoping to find more spacious place in the 'burbs.
And now, the rumored sale price: $1.25M, down $440K from what Phelps originally paid. Hey, you win some, you lose some!
(As of today, the listing is still active; stay tuned for updates.)
