Boston Bruins’ Krejci Sells Penthouse Condo and Buys a New One
Professional ice hockey player of the Boston Bruins, David Krejci, traded their penthouse condominium in North End for a new one. Krejci and his wife chose another condo at the historic Union Wharf Building, which is also in North End.
Selling the Penthouse for a New Condo
According to a deed at Suffolk County, Krejci and his wife sold their penthouse, which was located at 236 Commercial Street in North End, Boston. The penthouse has four bedrooms and comes with a huge living room with high ceilings. The property listing provided by David’s side also added that the condo has sliders that lead to a private deck where the Boston Harbor can be viewed.
The penthouse measures 2,618 square feet and also comes with skylights and an open kitchen. There is also a vast dining area, as well as a floating staircase which the couple customized for themselves. Heading to the bathroom, there is a master bath, too with double vanity mirrors, glass shower, and soaking tub.
The condo was up for sale on the 1st of August for $1.83 million.
Buying a New Property
Meanwhile, just 27 days after listing their penthouse condo, the couple bought a new property. It was a lot smaller than their penthouse as it measured 1,783 square feet. Their new condo unit is situated at the Union Wharf building, which is at 343 Commercial Street as well. The property is much more expensive though as it is worth $2.5 million.
Compared to their four-bedroom penthouse, this new condominium only has three bedrooms. However, it has similar features like the high ceilings. Additionally, there is a deeded parking space. Inside the home, there is recessed lighting and a fireplace as well.
The new property also has a swimming pool. It also has a common deck that lets the residents enjoy the waterfront. This particular deck is quite massive as it measures 10,000 square feet.
Fellow Bruins player, Brad Marchand, also bought a waterfront penthouse back in 2013, which was priced at $1.46 million. The Bruins’ left wing purchased the three-bedroom condo located just minutes from the TD Garden.
