It took a while but it appears Curt Schilling finally has a buyer for his Medfield abode. The former Red Sox righthander recently dropped the price of the 26-acre property by $500,000 — to $2.5 million — and the place is now under contract. The house, which Schilling and his wife, Shonda, bought for $4.5 million from former Patriots QB Drew Bledsoe a decade ago, had been on the market for two years. The Medfield manse features a wet bar, pool, and an “expansive cherry library with coffered ceiling and fireplace.” But Schilling is a motivated seller. Last fall, the three-time World Series champ held an estate sale to help deal with debts related to the bankruptcy of his Rhode Island-based video-game company, 38 Studios. In February, Schilling announced that he had been diagnosed with cancer, and has since completed radiation and chemotherapy.
