Barry Bonds’ childhood home up for sale
Wanna climb the same tree that Barry Bonds and his brothers did when they were kids? Or send your kid to his room — knowing that Barry’s father, Bobby, probably did the same thing 40 years ago? How about tell your kids, “Oh no. Not while your living under Barry’s roof!”? Well, now you can — if you’ve got the dough.
The San Francisco Giants slugger grew up at 175 Lyndhurst Avenue in San Carlos with dad Bobby and mother Patricia and now — according to Debra Monroe at Laurel Street Spy (a blogger who lives in San Carlos) — the Bonds’ old house is up for sale for a cool $1.68 million.
The house was built in 1964, the same year Barry was born. So it was, quite literally, the home run king’s crib. It reminds me a lot of the house on The Brady Bunch (check out the listing here). Kind of a small backyard, too (he definitely didn’t need any “help” cranking out Wiffle Ball homers).
