MLB Hall-of-Famer Tom Glavine Lists Sprawling Custom in Atlanta for $6.8M

Retired MLB Hall-of-Famer Tom Glavine and his wife Christine have listed their custom Atlanta estate for $6.75 million.

Glavine and his wife designed the 2008-built manse with their family in mind, and the Gothic-meets-rustic-style Georgia home is both chic and family friendly.

Considering the couple’s three oldest children have moved out, the Glavines are selling because the 16,132-square-foot home is too large with just two kids left at home. It measures 16,130 square feet, with eight bedrooms and nine-baths; it is situated within the Country Club of the South community.

Inside, the Manor-style boasts a series of beautiful features including  limestone floors sourced from a French church, Gothic-inspired archways, soaring ceilings, and a kitchen clad in stone. Standout spaces include the great room, which features a buttressed ceiling and a handmade leaded glass transom window, and the wood-paneled office.

For the kids, there is a large sports playground complete with a miniature baseball field and a space to play hockey. In addition to a billiard room, batting cage, and an arcade room inside, there is also a swimming pool and a spa in the backyard.

Glavine played for both the Atlanta Braves and the New York Mets during his career, and has been retired for about 10 years. The former pro baseball player and his family are building a smaller home in Alys Beach, Florida.
