Tonight is Game 6 of the World Series and the Yankees just might take it, so it’s only appropriate that we take a look at a Sarasota penthouse that was briefly occupied by the greatest Yankee of all, Babe Ruth. It’s in the Villa Serena, the classic old apartment building right across the street from the Sarabay Country Club.
One of the penthouse units is currently for rent. It consists of the living area of the original penthouse: the living room, formal dining room, breakfast room, kitchen, and bath. The bedroom – 25 feet long with continuous windows on three sides, used to be an enclosed sun porch. There’s also a terrace overlooking the country club. The rent? $950 a month.
