John Smoltz’s Mansion Still on Market
We have the exclusive peek inside the massive estate of the former Atlanta Braves pitcher.
It must be getting crowded in the head of former Atlanta Braves pitcher John Smoltz. Voices told him to build a baseball diamond on his 20-acre property and then they just kept on chatting. Smoltz then put in a basketball court, a tennis court, an 18-hole golf course, a cement pond, a jogging trail and a fishing hole. The professed “sports geek,” who retired from Major League Baseball in 2008, put his massive 10-bedroom, 10-bath estate on the MLS over a year ago and so far there are no takers. Listed at $7.2 million, the Cy Young Award-winner said that he spent more than $2 million creating the backyard alone. It takes seven hours to mow.

Located about 30 miles north of Turner Field in Milton’s gated Greystone community, the home is made up of three finished levels and has breathtaking views of the expansive estate from all corners. Also included is an au pair suite and studio apartment along with an eight-car garage.
Smoltz struck out more batters as a Brave than any other club pitcher. He is a member of the 3,000 strikeouts club and is the fourth all-time-winningest pitcher as a Brave. He had his number 29 retired by the Braves in 2012, is an avid golfer and at one time aspired to be a professional golfer. Smoltz gave HGTV’s Carter Oosterhouse a personal tour on Million Dollar Rooms, which you can see here.
