You Can Buy This Custom-Built Home From Former MLB Right Fielder Jeff “Frenchy” Francoeur for $3.8 Million
If you are looking into buying a home in Georgia and have around $4 million to spare, then you might want to take a good look at the custom-built home in Suwanee. Former Major League Baseball star Jeff “Frenchy” Francoeur recently listed the 1.3-acre property for $3.8 million.
Having previously played for the Atlanta Braves, Frenchy, together with his wife Catie, decided to build a deluxe home in the state in 2012. The Francoeurs made this 10,200-square-foot home their base even though Frenchy’s career involved a lot of traveling.
In 2014, Catie revealed to Atlanta magazine that the city will forever be their home. And since they’re not around that much, they wanted to immediately feel comfortable and cozy once they open the front door. To make their vision a reality, they teamed up with architect Michael Swilley and interior designer Michell Doughtie.
The home has a total of 6 bedrooms, 7 full bathrooms, and 3 half ones. The interior features high ceilings, black hardwood floors, barn doors, and handcrafted exposed beam ceilings. The house’s common living spaces all have key design pieces. The double-height front foyer has marble tiles, while the formal living room has a crystal chandelier and a grand piano where Catie can make use of her years of lessons.
On the second level is the master suite that has a sitting nook and a master bathroom equipped with a tub, a huge picture window, a glass steam shower, and 2 vanities. Also on the same level are the four other en-suite bedrooms.
Aside from the usual spaces, the Frenchy’s former home also boasts several interesting rooms. One is the large guest suite on the first floor. It also has a blue-painted trophy room, a wine cellar, an art room, a bar, a media room, and your own spa bath.
Even with all those features, the outdoor entertaining areas of the home are still the highlights of the property. New homeowners can bask in the relatively mild year-round Atlanta weather with outdoor entertaining and dining areas that Frenchy and Catie made sure to maximize.
The porch on the main level has phantom screens covering it to prevent bugs. There is also a 1,500-gallon hot tub equipped with its own waterfall, bed swings, outdoor bars, gas grill, and a built-in fire pit.
