“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kim Zolciak has moved on, and her high-priced rental has moved onto the market for $2,999,000! Anyone with a Bravo TV “Real Housewives” addiction will recognize the estate on the chopping block as Kim’s self-professed “dream home.” It’s the mansion Kim, now-husband Kroy, and their kids lived in for the past two seasons of “Housewives” and during the spinoff “Don’t Be Tardy For The Wedding,” which centered around Kim planning her lavish wedding in the backyard of this very home.
Kim and clan famously clashed with the home‘s owners about the cost of interior decorating services, and rumors of eviction floated around the tabloids for months. Kim claims she was never tardy for a rent payment, and her family had rented the home with the intention to buy. But when the inspection came back $1 million lower than the owner’s rumored $3.25 million-dollar asking price, Kim and Kroy decided it would be a poor financial move to overpay for the home. According to reports, they bolted back to Kim’s much smaller townhouse while they waited out the completion of a bigger, better home.
Anyone willing to shell out nearly $3 million dollars for a stately Georgia mansion (with a reality TV pedigree) would be scooping up a massive brick home on two acres. The listing information claims that the home is on the market for “one million less than the seller has invested in this house.” What exactly did the owners invest in? The estate includes a sports court, a pool with waterfall, outdoor living area, and an elevator. Because one isn’t enough, it’s got three full kitchens, plus a theater, game room, billiard room, au pair suite with full kitchen, gentlemen’s library, caterer’s planning office, two laundry rooms, a gym, reading loft, and sitting area with fireplace, three family rooms, a master suite with morning room and coffee bar, and so much more. That’s a whole lotta house! Kim didn’t want it, but it can still be yours!

Derek Lowe’s inconsistent tenure with the Atlanta Braves is over, and so is his time in a stately mansion in the Buckhead area of Atlanta, according to Curbed Atlanta. Prior to his October 2011 trade, Lowe was coming off what some called “the worst season of his 15-year career.” He lost a major-league high of 17 games and ended the season with an 8.75 ERA. Lowe was subsequently traded to Cleveland for minor league pitcher Chris Jones. The Braves paid Lowe $10M of the $15M left on the final year of his contract. Not too shabby for a sub-par performance.
Another contract Lowe is focused on finalizing is the one to sell his $3,495,000 Atlanta mansion. Not your typical sprawling jock mega-mansion in the ‘burbs, Lowe actually hung his (baseball) hat in a French country home designed by Stan Dixon that won the prestigious Shutze award. The estate boasts 5 bedrooms, 5 full and two partial bathrooms, and 12 foot ceilings. The large rooms have great flow and top-of-the-line finishes.
The finished basement has a large wine cellar, man cave/cigar room, entertainment room, plus a bedroom and full bathroom. The master suite is on the main floor, overlooking the pool and private, fenced backyard. An airy living room overlooks the pool and outdoor entertaining area that features a cabana. Lowe’s home also features an incredible kitchen with hidden pantry and a built-in banquet.
