B’s Beat: Bruins’ Brad Marchand Selling His Childhood Halifax Home For A Cool $1.2 Million (PHOTOS)
Bruins winger Brad Marchand has been a star on the rise in the NHL. As one’s pay check rises so does one’s need for some new digs . The “Little Ball Of Hate” is going house shopping (perhaps a log cabin?) and has put his Halifax 6,000 sq. ft. home up for sale.
Asking price is a cool $1.2 million. However, this is not just any house, it’s where Brad Marchand grew up.
The real estate agent is Jeff Marchand (you guessed it Brad’s bro) and he spoke to the Chronicle Herald:
“It’s our family home,” Jeff said in a telephone interview Tuesday. “It’s a great spot where we grew up as a family.”
There are four Marchand kids — two boys and two girls — and they are all on their own now, Jeff said.
When his parents decided to move to Bedford’s Shore Drive, the hockey star bought it. He made the purchase in 2011, taking out a mortgage for up to $925,000, according to provincial online property records.
The lakefront property has been a lot of fun in the summers, Jeff said.
“He’s got all the toys. And if the house doesn’t sell, he’s happy to come back and spend the summers there.”
In fact, Brad spent a happy day on the lake in 2011 with the famed Stanley Cup after the Bruins won the championship.
“I think he had it out in the boat,” Jeff said. “But I’m not sure; there was a lot going on that day.”
Looks like Brad Marchand did not suffer much growing up…….
Damn, I would get lost in a house that big and on a lake no less.
