Eight-time All-Star and former Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones is selling his rustic weekend home in Blue Ridge, GA, a popular vacation destination at the foot of the Adirondack Mountains.
Jones, 46, retired from the Braves in 2012, after a 19-year career with the team. Two years into retirement, he bought this five-bedroom, 5.5-bath home for $1.4 million. He’s now selling it for $1,575,000.
Built in 2006, the 4,900-square-foot home sits on a half-acre lot on the banks of Blue Ridge Lake, which is popular with boaters and anglers.
The supersized cabin features wood floors, walls, and ceilings with exposed beams. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the two-story great room, which has an A-frame vaulted ceiling, floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, and large windows that follow the shape of the roofline.
Enhancing the rustic ambiance are four bucks mounted on the wall, and a fox lounging above the TV.
The kitchen is equipped with a butcher block island, stainless-steel appliances, and custom cabinetry. There’s a dining table in the next room, with an antler chandelier, and sliding glass door to the deck.
The bedrooms and bathrooms also feature wood furnishings, cabinets, and built-ins. A kids’ bedroom (with bunk bed) features a framed Jones jersey. (The Braves retired his jersey, No. 10, in 2013, during his induction into the team’s hall of fame.)
Framed jerseys appear elsewhere in the house, including the entertainment room and the office. A signed Joe Montana jersey hangs in the bar.
Outside, there’s a wraparound, two-story deck with a hot tub and dining room. Elsewhere, there’s a guest room above the garage, and a two-story, deep-water dock.
Jones was the top pick in the 1990 MLB draft. As a rookie, he helped the Braves win the World Series in 1995 against the Cleveland Indians. He racked up 468 home runs and 1,623 RBI during his storied career. He entered baseball’s Hall of Fame in 2018.
