Location: Alpharetta, Ga.
The Skinny: In January, retired Atlanta Braves pitcher—and veritable hometown hero—John Smoltz listed his mansion in Alpharetta, Ga., which he bought for $3.4M in 2003. At the time, Curbed Atlanta called the behemoth "your typical big ass Alpharetta mansion—custom-built and stuffed to the gills with high-end materials, finishes and gadgets." An apt description indeed: as a refresher, it spans 18,265 square feet with 10 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, and an eight-car garage, not to mention 22-acre grounds that contain an NFL-size football field, an 18-hole golf course, a fishing pond, a jogging trail, a pool with waterfalls and a waterslide, tennis and basketball courts, and, naturally, a miniature baseball field. Smoltz told the Wall Street Journal that he spent between $4M and $5M on updates—"it was an opportunity to have a wild imagination"—yet still calls it "more homey than I ever thought it would be." Now he's asking a "homey" $7.2M.
