The Georgia mansion features a number of stunning amenities, including a glass-encased wine room, sauna, move room, four fireplaces and a playroom with two-story playhouses and a rock climbing wall. Jones’ former home also has a nine-car garage, Olympic-size heated pool, a separate carriage house, four-stall horse stable, gardens and fountains.
“Nestled on 37 wooded acres, this extraordinary estate, the personal home of Hall of Fame athlete Chipper Jones, was designed to allow the considerable beauty of its location to shine,” Ansley Real Estate’s listing said. “The setting is matched only by the grandeur of the house itself which takes full advantage of the property’s natural surroundings.”
Speaking to The Wall Street Journal, Jones revealed that he decided to put the estate on the market because he believed it was time to downsize and move closer to his family. In 2022, Jones purchased a Blue Ridge mansion for $3 million. The lake house is 5,788 square feet, features five bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms and is officially Jones’ new home.
Following a stunning career with a .303 career batting average, 468 home runs and 1,623 runs batted in, Chipper Jones retired from Major League Baseball in 2012. The Atlanta Braves would go on to retire Jones’ No. 10 jersey, with the iconic player being inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2018.
