Hershey-born international soccer star Christian Pulisic has acquired a million dollar property for his family in Lebanon County.

We are withholding certain details of the all-cash transaction and not identifying the property by address to protect the privacy of the Pulisic family, but we can say that the property is among the most beautiful lots we’ve seen in Lebanon County, featuring a very substantial house with access to a creek as well as equestrian facilities. (Christian’s sister, Devyn Pulisic, is a competition equestrian athlete.)

Christian’s father, Mark Pulisic, is a former Lebanon Valley College head soccer coach (1993-2005). Mark Pulisic attended George Mason University where he played soccer and ended up in the Men’s Soccer Hall of Fame. He also played professional himself with the Harrisburg Heat from 1991 to 1999. Mark is still active in the coaching field through his podcast, Soccer Unplugged, which he hosts with Dan Visser, a Messiah College men’s soccer alum.

The link between the property and the Pulisics has been confirmed through a number of sources, including independent image-based verification using publicly posted social media images that show the property in the background.

Between Pulisic’s Hershey roots, his endorsement deal with The Hershey Company, and this recent real estate purchase, the odds look good that Christian will be returning to Central PA for years to come.

Just this week it was reported that Pulisic is on his way to Chelsea FC in a $57-million deal, a trade that Quartz says puts US soccer into a new era.
