Former Philadelphia Housing Authority chief Carl R. Greene has put his three-bedroom Naval Square townhouse on the market for $575,000.
Greene, who was fired by PHA in September after the disclosure that he had secretly settled three harassment complaints filed against him by women who worked at the housing agency, bought the house new in 2007 for $615,035.
Greene's troubles at PHA exploded after reports that Wells Fargo Bank started foreclosure proceedings against him because he had fallen three months behind on his mortgage payments.
That was quickly followed by news that the Internal Revenue Service had hit him earlier in the year with a $52,000 lien for unpaid taxes.
After the foreclosure action became public, Greene apologized and said he was working to resolve the financial problems.
But details of the harassment complaints quickly surfaced and derailed his much-applauded career after 13 years in Philadelphia public housing.
The real estate agency handling Greene's home sale says the "gorgeous" townhouse, which went on the market in the last month, has 21/2 baths, "beautiful hardwood floors, a fabulous kitchen," and "a wonderful sunlit deck."
