Roy Halladay’s home in Newtown Square has sold for $1.96 million.

The home of the former Phillies pitcher sold just above the asking price of $1.95 million, according to listing agent Robin Gordon of BHHS Fox & Roach.

Halladay and his wife, Brandy, first listed the 7,900-square-foot home three months ago. Halladay, who purchased the Delaware County home for about $2.3 million in March 2010 at the start of his first season with the Phillies, retired in December 2013.

The Halladays' former residence is at the end of a cul-de-sac on Springhouse Lane. It includes a finished basement with a gym, recreation room, and sauna. Outside, there's a pool with a spa, pool house, and an outdoor kitchen.

Halladay's permanent home with his wife is in Odessa, Fla., real estate records show.

He's not the only Phillie to have lived in the neighborhood. Halladay's former teammate Cole Hamels has owned a home in Newtown Square since August 2009.

In other Phillies real estate news, Jonathan Papelbon's condo in Rittenhouse is still on the market for $6.9 million.
