Chipper Jones Puts Atlanta Mansion on Market
The Roswell home is located 30 miles north of Turner Field in an exclusive gated community with great public schools.The 24,000-square-foot house that future Hall of Famer Larry Wayne “Chipper” Jones built in 2005 is on the market. The Atlanta Braves third baseman and seven-time National League All-Star slugger recently separated from his wife and downsized, moving into a 6,500-square-foot home nearby.
Also on the expansive main floor are a chef’s grade custom-built kitchen, a great room, a butler’s pantry, a media/theater room with seating for 10, a great room and library. A grand and winding staircase leads you upstairs to a labyrinth of halls and bedrooms. You might want to leave a trail of Cracker Jacks to find your way back to the main floor.
And let's now talk wood, which Chipper obviously loves. During his Major League career Jones swung several different bats throughout his career, including those crafted Mizuno, Glomar and the Rawlings Adirondack, his preferred brand throughout most of his career. His home also utilizes many types of wood: cherry, Georgia pine and oak, to name a few. Wood walls, wood cabinetry, wood floors, wood mantles and it sits on a 2.5 acre wooded lot.

Jones debuted for the Atlanta Braves in 1993 and spent his entire career with the team. Statistically, he became the second most successful Brave of all-time behind Hank Aaron. Only Aaron played more games and spent more seasons in a Braves uniform than Chipper. After 19 years, Jones hung up his cleats in 2012. His number 10 jersey will be retired in a special ceremony this Friday, June 28 at Turner Field. A few tickets still remain and guests are encouraged to arrive early.
