Canton home linked to Olympian Michael Phelps on the market for $1.15 million

Since Olympian swimmer Michael Phelps has taken to warmer pastures in Arizona to train with his longtime coach Bob Bowman and start anew with his expecting fiancee, you can now live like an athlete in what is believed to be Phelps' former abode.

The townhome located on South Curley Street in Canton is now on the market for $1.15 million, according to a listing by real estate company The Royal Metropolitan Group.


The two-story, 2,800-square-foot townhouse, which sold for $1.03 million in 2012, features modern and industrial decor, a five-car garage, a rooftop terrace and a hot tub, and is a short walk from the restaurants and lively nightlife of Canton.

Giovanna Bellas, CEO of the real estate group, and Drew Johnson, Phelps' agent and the director of strategic communications at sports management and marketing agency Octagon, did not immediately respond to requests for comment. But a 2012 report by The Baltimore Sun included details suggesting Phelps' ownership of the home, and in 2016, all signs still point to Phelps as the departing occupant.

On property records, David Pessin, who is a Towson real estate planning attorney, is indicated as the primary owner and trustee, and the address of Octagon, located in McLean, Va., is listed as the mailing address. Pessin also did not respond to requests for comment from The Sun.

An Instagram photo, however, might be the most revealing. Posted nearly three years ago on Phelps' account, the picture shows the swim star getting his hair cut pre-ESPY Awards in the same kitchen shown in photos posted by The Royal Metropolitan Group.
