Canton home linked to Michael Phelps sells for $960,000

Canton home linked to Michael Phelps sells for $960,000.

While Michael Phelps has been busy racking up medals and inspiring memes at the Olympics in Rio, back in his native Baltimore, what's believed to be his former home has been sold. 

The three-bedroom townhome on South Curley Street in Canton — which The Sun has previously reported to be linked to the Olympic swimmer — was sold for $960,000 on July 25, according to the online listing. The home had been on the market since at least March, with an asking price of $1.15 million. 

According to the listing, the 5,000-plus-square-foot property features a rooftop terrace, a five-car garage and "endless amenities."

The Royal Metropolitan Group, the real estate company that listed the Curley Street home, declined to comment on the property Wednesday. 

So, sorry, Canton-ites— you can't claim Phelps as your alleged neighbor anymore. (The swimmer moved to Arizona last year to train with longtime coach Bob Bowman.) But at least Phelps is staying true to his Baltimore roots — he still appreciates a good "O!" during the national anthem.
