Located in North Atlanta's Country Club of the South, the future Hall of Famer's home sits on close to two acres.

Former Atlanta Brave and two-time Cy Young Award-winner Tom Glavine put his Alpharetta mansion on the market this week. In 1984 Glavine was simultaneously drafted by the Braves organization and by the Los Angeles Kings to play professional hockey. Luckily for us, Mr. Spalding beat out the “biscuit” and he began his Major League Baseball career with the Braves in 1987 and went on to become one of the greatest left-handed pitchers of all time. Glavine is one of only 24 pitchers (and six left-handed pitchers) in MLB history to earn 300 career wins.

Located about 30 miles north of Turner Field at the Country Club of the South, the future Hall of Fame inductee’s majestic 10,222-square-foot Colonial home has seven bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, five fireplaces, a three-car garage and a pool. Situated on 1.95 acres, the home’s dramatic entrance features a double-sided staircase flanked by two dining rooms that lead to a large custom kitchen. The three-story home also features a wood-paneled home office or library, a theater/media room, a wine cellar, a game room, an indoor putting green and a huge exercise room. Outside is a large pool shrouded in privacy by lush evergreens and hardwoods. 

The private master suite, with its own fireplace and separate sitting room, is located on the main floor. The spa-like bath is outfitted with imported Italian marble, his-and-hers sinks, a jetted garden soaker tub, and a custom-made stained-glass window. Upstairs are five more spacious bedrooms and four baths.

Glavine’s wife, Christine, said the couple chose Country Club of the South because of the peace of mind and security the community provides. 

Glavine retired from professional baseball in 2010 but stayed on with the Braves organization as a consultant and also works as an on-air analyst for SportSouth and Fox Sports South. He also coaches his son Mason’s Atlanta Fire peewee hockey team. He and his wife, Christine, have four other children in addition to Mason.

The Braves retired his number 47 before a packed hometown crowd in 2010. You can see the tear-jerking and inspiring retirement ceremony at the Atlanta Braves’ website
