New York Yankees legend Yogi Berra has put his northern New Jersey home on the market for $888,000 – a price that honors the uniform No. 8 he wore during his Hall of Fame career, the New York Daily News reports.

The 4,502-square-foot home in Montclair is where Berra and his late wife, Carmen, lived for 40 years and raised their three sons.

The clapboard house was built in 1902 and has six bedrooms and five baths. According to the listing, special architectural details include a spacious foyer which leads to a three-story spiral staircase, French doors, and a decorative fireplace in the dining room. Views of NYC can be seen from the first and second floors.

Realtor Julie Kemps-Rowley of Keller Williams told the New York Daily News that there will be no open houses; only appointments to see the home.
