I caught the end of the conversation during the SVP & Russillo show, but I think I heard Van Pelt saying how he’ll be needing a place to stay after selling his house. One thing led to another and I found Van Pelt’s West Hartford, Connecticut house that he’s selling. It’s a 4 bedroom, 4 bath, 3,500 sq. ft. brick colonial-style house on a nice one-acre lot with mature trees.
SVP originally put the house on the market in March, went through three price changes and seems to have finally found someone to buy it in the $695,000 range.
The realtor description of the pad:
Welcome home! A warm and inviting Brick Colonial in a terrific location. 4 large bedrooms,3.2 baths. Remodeled Kitchen with granite counters & new Viking appliances. Oversized Living room with fireplace, bay window & French doors to lovely, level bckyd. Beautiful blue stone patio for warm weather relaxing.
How did the realtor forget to mention the perfect man cave area where SVP has his sports memorabilia? That’s easily the best room in the house. Looks like a nice place to hang, drink a few beers and talk about life. It’s easy to see why SVP would be pulling out of the house. The master bedroom is tight. The master bath area is decent for someone just out of college, not one of the most important personalities at the World Wide Leader. And who wants to rake all those leaves on weekends when the games are on?
According to real estate documents, SVP paid $691,000 for the place in 2005.
This is a rare look inside the house of an ESPN personality. The guy has a basement that’s pretty much like what you have going on, minus the basement radio studio setup. Don’t get used to listings like this. This doesn’t happen very often.
