Sox Owner John Henry Lists Boca Raton Waterfront Mansion For $25 Million

The next time you find your self troubled by John Henry having to pay almost $12 million in luxury tax penalties—remember this story. The Red Sox principal owner has just put up for sale his waterfront mansion in Boca Raton, Floridafor a $25 million asking price. The former soybean futures magnate bought the property many moons ago—before he got involved in baseball. The house is 41,000 square feet—with seven bedrooms and nineteen baths. Perhaps the best feature is an indoor-outdoor pizza room—that alone makes us like Henry a little better. Maybe, if you're in the vicinity, you can drop-by next Sunday—there might be an Open House. I'm sure he'll have cookies and milk out in the cherry-paneled library. If you're keeping track, in addition to the Red Sox, Henry's empire now also includes The Boston Globe newspaper, NESN, the Liverpool soccer club and some dumb auto racing enterprise. Like we said—don't feel too sorry for him.
