Former MLB outfielder Jeff Francoeur is swinging for a sale of his Suwanee, GA, home. The custom-built abode sits on 1.3 acres and is on the market for $3.8 million. It’s quite simply a home run for sports lovers.
Located on a golf course lot at the River Club Community, the 10,200-square-foot residence has six bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms.
The traditional architecture features spacious rooms, high-end finishes, and amenities galore. One eye-popping feature that won’t be staying with the property? A trophy room filled with sports memorabilia, including jerseys, baseball bats, balls, and even shoes.
But plenty does come with the house, including a lower level with a crafts room, gym, and game room with a bar, billiard table, and projection screen—all perfect for hosting friends while taking in a big game.
The main level has an open kitchen with designer appliances, marble and stone hood, and gas cooktop. A marble island includes bar seating, and a large dining table and family room sit just adjacent. The layout also includes a formal dining room, living room, and office with built-in shelves.
Upstairs, there’s a spacious master suite and four en suite bedrooms, along with a playroom, study nook, and second laundry room. A guest suite is located on the main level.
Pampered pooches have a dedicated space, too: Two built-in dog beds located in the downstairs laundry room, which has access to the yard.
Outside there’s a bar, grill, and fire pit. A lower-level patio includes hanging bed swings and a hot tub with waterfall. And a fenced yard overlooks the fourth hole of the golf course. A new roof, oversize driveway, and four-car garage complete the property.
Francoeur, 36, has made a quick transition from his playing days to the announcer’s booth. He serves as lead TV analyst for the Atlanta Braves, the same team the Georgia native broke into the big leagues with in 2005
