During his 15-year career Derek Lowe has spent time with the Seattle Mariners, Boston Red Sox, Los Angeles Dodgers, and most recently the Atlanta Braves. In three seasons with the Braves he had a record of 40-39 (including a NL leading 17 losses in 2011) and an ERA of 4.57. Last October Atlanta traded Lowe to the Cleveland Indians, giving them a durable and veteran arm to add to their relatively young rotation. Since 2002 the fewest innings pitched by Lowe in a season was 182.2 in 2004.
In addition to friends and acquaintances in the Atlanta area being left behind so will his 5 bedroom mansion that is for sale for $3.5 million. The home was built in 2008, designed by architect D. Stanley Dixon, and received the Shutze Award given by the Southeast Chapter of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art. Here’s some additional information and photos passed along by Trulia.
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.
