Former Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones is selling his Roswell mansion.
The 23,000-square-foot home on Heatherwood Court in the gated community of Glenayre in North Fulton County has been listed by Professional Realty Group Inc. Fulton County tax records show the home is owned by Jones, whose real name is Larry Wayne Jones Jr.
Jones is seeking $3.2 million for the property, 26 percent less than the $4.3 million paid for the home when it was built in 2005.
When reached Friday, Jones’ agent, B.B. Abbott, said he nor Jones would have a comment.
Carter Smith, a Professional Realty Group agent representing the property, said the asking price reflects the general trend in metro Atlanta home prices. “The economy doesn’t care who you are,” Smith said. He said the home was listed this week. Jones recently purchased another home in metro Atlanta.
According to Professional Realty Group’s listing, the estate sits on 2.5-acres. It features seven bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, a formal dining room, theater room and many other features. The first-floor master suite features a sitting room and two fireplaces. The home has a chef’s kitchen, butler’s pantry and breakfast room. There is a separate nanny’s suite with a laundry room and full kitchen.
There is also a six-vehicle garage with a private courtyard. The landscaped grounds feature a swimming pool with a waterfall and Jacuzzi, covered patio and outdoor fireplace. The home is also near Roswell High, Crabapple Middle and Mountain Park Elementary schools.
Jones finished up his final year with the Braves this past season, ending a 19-season career with 2,726 hits, 468 homers and a .303 career batting average.
He tweeted on Nov. 16 that his divorce from his second wife, Sharon, was final after 12 years of marriage. They have three children and Jones has a fourth child.
Jones was spotted recently with Playboy model Taylor Higgins, known professionally as Lexi Ray or Lexi Ray Taylor, according to Bustedcoverage.com and several other websites that reported on the sighting.
