The comedian Jeff Foxworthy is selling his massive mansion for $2.99 million, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. According to the AJC, Foxworthy and his wife, Pamela Gregg, have downsized to a smaller home nearby and are ready to turn their long-time retreat over to the next owner.
The couple purchased the land in Alpharetta, GA, in 1997, and proceeded to take on a three-year project to construct their dream house.
The riverside estate, located on a quiet cul-de-sac in Country Club of the South, was designed by Budd Holden, the Los Angeles architect to the stars. The end result is a “magnificent home built to perfection and detailed with hidden gems throughout,” according to the listing description.
The mansion was completed in 2001, and its layout measures over 14,600 square feet, with five bedrooms and nine bathrooms. Enter through a grand entry and covered terrace into the main level. The living space looks out to the pool from floor-to-ceiling windows, and has cherry hardwood flooring.
A formal dining room features natural light with walls of glass. The chef’s kitchen contains top-of-the-line appliances and a brick-arched butler’s pantry. The kitchen opens out onto a two-story family room.
The fireside master suite includes an exclusive staircase down to the office. Its spa bathroom features a breakfast bar, steam shower, and dual closets.
Upstairs, three more en suite bedrooms include workspaces and private balconies. The terrace level can be accessed by elevator and comes with a full kitchen, plus family, media, and craft rooms.
In addition, separate guest quarters include a patio and water garden.
The office where Foxworthy crafted many of his trademark jokes features heart-of-pine floors and cabinets. A game room and bathroom complete the office space.
Outside, the upscale amenities include a pool, waterfall, and a cabana with a kitchen, grill, and full bathroom.
A garage with four spaces completes the property.
The stand-up comedian, actor, and author is a member of the “Blue Collar Comedy Tour.” He’s best-known for his zingers that begin: “You might be a redneck if…” He’s recorded six comedy albums and hosted the TV quiz show, “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?”
Margaret Connors with Keller Williams Realty Consultants holds the listing.
