Former Atlanta Braves baseball player Chipper Jones is putting his sprawling south Texas ranch up for sale. The 4,820 square-foot property, known as the Double Dime Ranch (South), has more than just a secluded estate to offer, and it will only set you back a cool $12.5 million.
On Double Dime South, you’ll find prime land for hunting, with food plots, fields, woods and water. The ranch has an abundance of whitetail dear, wild turkeys, quail and doves. According to Whitetail Properties, who is managing the property, “The ranch is iconic from numerous television appearances on Major League Bowhunter and Buck Commander television shows showcasing the quality of wildlife on the ranch.” Jones currently runs a commercial hunting operating on the land.
Larry “Chipper” Jones retired from the game in 2012, and has owned Double Dime for nearly 18 years. His parents were living there before his retirement, but afterwards, Chipper decided to dedicate more time to the handling of the the Maverick County ranch. The name “Double Dime” is a tribute to he and his father’s baseball numbers, both 10.
On the property sits a Mediterranean and Spanish style main house. With 6,458 square-feet of living space, the home has a total of four bedrooms and five-and-a-half bathrooms. The interior of the home is designed just as immaculately as you would imagine and stays true to its wildlife surroundings.
While the interior is gorgeous, the patio and pool area is arguably the most stunning part of of the residence. It offers a place to relax from the sweltering Texas heat (being only 20 miles from the Mexican border).
Also on the Double Dime Ranch South is a 1,756 square-foot guest house, a 1,045 square-foot workout facility that can double as living space and a 3,600 square-foot airplane hangar. The property has its own paved runway to make flying in stress free.
As if this all wasn’t enough, there’s also a world-class equestrian center. With 21 total stalls, laundry and storage rooms and 10 paddocks, horse lovers would be in heaven here.
