Atlanta Hawks: Joe Johnson’s Atlanta house on the market for $4.7 million

Former Hawks guard Joe Johnson is like many of the rest of us: relocating for his job and looking to sell his crib. Most of us aren’t putting our house on the market for $4.7 million, but still.

The listing at estately.com notes J.J.’s “grand estate” includes eight bedrooms and eight full baths among its 13,822 square feet. There’s a weight room, a recording studio, and a basement spa that appears to include a salon with a barber’s chair (helping to explain why J.J.’s waves always were so tight).

Personally, I would never buy a place with a weak Walk Score (at least it’s ITP, though). Then again, if I could afford this mansion, someone else would run my errands and I’m pretty sure I’d have a few friends willing to move in visit every once in a while.

compared to other young athletes houses it is very tasteful and looks like his decorator is very good…glad he didn’t go cliche and put up a bunch of jersey in frames all over the wall everywhere.. also this guy has the sickest car game in ATL (phantoms, benzes, crazy trucks, etc)

Property Taxes $46,000+ per year. Whew.

It’s beautiful, if a bit monochromatic.

This house was built by Renaissance Development per tax records. renbuilder.com… looks like a top buckhead builder.

With all that money the Hawks were throwing at him, he better have bought himself a sweet crib.

Amazing, the terminology this reporter used to describe what Joe Johnson is selling! Instead of using (selling his house or home), but chose to use selling his crib. I want to know if he was reporting about a professional golf player selling his house, or home what terminology he would’ve to used?

Would you have been offended ChAnGe33 if they were reporting on a French guy selling his Chateau or an Italian selling his Villa? Get over it you bleeding heart.

Is that a Ford Maverick?

[...] according to Forbes. Or if you’re looking for something a little smaller and closer to home, former Hawks coach Joe Johnson’s 13,822-square-foot Old Londberry community home in northwest Atlanta is for sale for a mere $4.7 [...]

Yeah, the crib comment jumped out at me. Is the writer attempting to be hip? Weird stuff. Probably a middle-aged white guy with wing tipped shoes,white shirt,tie,pinstrip 3-piece suit right out of the 70s.

As Barry Bonds would say, that is major cribbage. And yes, MC, if you pay the asking price, I’d bet he’d throw in that Charger.

The house really isn’t worth that kind of money but I understand it was about to go into free agency.

@JayD He didnt flunk out, he simply left early like a good majority of the college players do these days. Mr. I’m So “knowledgable” is just running off at the mouth.

I think it is a very tastefully done home. Whoever he hired to do it was pretty good.

I think Mitt Romney should buy it with some of his $250 Million that is overseas bank accounts. Oh… and then he can let that geek he chose for a running mate move in

The negative comments are usually stated when one is disgusted at his or her parents because the dog got 99% of the attention. Basically, the 10% directed their way was primarily “Go To Bed, I Hate You, or Kid So Ugly Put Him/Her in the Dog House and let Skipper Inside. So I will not respond with negative comments, however, I want to let them know God Still Loves You…..

A crib is an infant bed in American English (English: cot).

Hey, sensitive liberals, Michael Cunningham basically is the Hawks regular beat writer. So don’t get your undies in a wad and try reading the sports page now and then.

Amazing how a short piece about a house for sale turns into an opportunity for the Red State crowd to whine about Obama, as though he’s the reason our economy is in the sh!tter. Folks, turn off Faux News and stop repeating talking points as though you have any idea what you’re talking about. And get ready for four more years of Obama in the White House (I know how that infuriates you), because Romney/Ryan is one of the most unelectable tickets in Presidential campaign history…right up there with McCain/Palin.

art he IS the reason the unemployment rate is high and gdp is dismal. DUH. His own words…I don’t deserve to be reelected if the unemployment rate stays above 8%. Not surprised idiots like yourself don’t have a clue how the economy works. That 5 trillion he’s blown through sure did create so many jobs!!

He’ll get about 35% of what he paid for that house (maybe he’ll give it over to the bank…!)… that’s after a long wait. Try to remember this and let’s see! That’s what occurs when these ballplayers think they can transact a business deal. umm-hmmm.

As soon as I saw the microphone I had an image of Joe and Marvin singing a duet of Islands in the Stream.

Now I can’t get the image or the song out of my head!

@jason name calling shows intelligence. How about you factor in the war that was going on when he took office and the global slow down in your dissertation there buddy. So I guess a global crappy economy has nothing to do with it… it is all Obama… Oblamers.
