Tom Clancy condo on Canton waterfront under contract

September 26, 2014|By Natalie Sherman

A Canton condominium owned by Baltimore author Tom Clancy is slated for settlement next month, according to court documents.

The Clancy estate is the subject of a legal battle between his widow and the former executor.

The 2,379-square-foot unit in the Canton Cove building on Boston Street came under contract for $660,000 in September.  The court approved a petition to sell the property Sept. 17, a day after attorneys for J.W. Thompson Webb sought permission for the deal.

The "Hunt for Red October" author, who died in 2013, bought the unit with his first wife for $370,000 in 1993. He also owned homes in Calvert County and Martha's Vineyard, and a 17,000-square-foot suite of penthouse units at the Ritz-Carlton Residences in Baltimore. 

Clancy’s four adult children and wife, Alexandra, agreed to the Canton sale, according to estate documents. Alexandra Clancy has sought to oust Webb as executor over what she says is a mistake that added about $6 million to the taxes for her share of his $82 million estate.
