SUDBURY, Mass. (AP) _ Babe Ruth’s suburban Boston home is for sale.

The estate known as Home Plate Farm in Sudbury is being offered for $1.65 million.

Broker Scott Adamson says Ruth lived in the home from 1922 to 1926, after he had been sent to the New York Yankees.

Although the home has undergone extensive renovations since the 1920s, it maintains many of the features from Ruth’s time. Adamson says one room even has burn marks on the floor where Ruth flicked cigar ashes.

Renovations to the 5,000-square-foot, five bedroom, 3 1/2 bathroom house include what the broker calls a “dream kitchen. The property also includes a 5,000-square foot barn with stables, office space, garage bays and a one-bedroom apartment.

Adamson calls it “a one-of-a-kind opportunity to own a piece of history.”
