The generally disappointing tenure of Braves' pitcher Derek Lowe has come to an end with his trade to the Cleveland Indians. Which means there's a new multi-million dollar home listing on the market. Unlike many of his teammates and Braves predecessors, Lowe bucked the ginormous-mansion-in-the-suburbs trend and bought this new construction French country-style place in the heart of Buckhead. Located prominently on one of Atlanta's loveliest promenades (Peachtree Battle Avenue), the house is a showcase of modern luxury and rather smart and subtle decorating. Typical jock features like a cigar room, pool room, wine cellar and multi-screen media room are complimented by the other living spaces' generous dimensions, light (white) color palette and eclectic lighting and decor accents. There's also 5 bedrooms, 5 full baths, 2 half baths, a pool with cabana and 2 laundry rooms. List price is $3,495,000.
