Kevin Garnett is cutting all ties to New England.
The current Brooklyn Net and former Boston Celtic has listed his Concord, Mass., mansion at the sum of just under $5 million, according to CBS Boston.
The home has five bedrooms and sits on more than 12 acres of land. It comes with five full and two half baths -- not to mention a home gym, a media room, a wine cellar and spectacular views of a large pond right in the home's backyard.
Intensely private by most accounts, Garnett did not frequent the nightlife scene in Boston, instead preferring to stay in-house. Can't blame him.
"We had many happy gatherings with family and friends, and we dedicated a lot of time and effort to incorporate our own personal touches to this home," the Garnetts said in a statement.
Garnett spent the past six years of his 18-year NBA career in Boston before being traded to the Nets along with Celtics teammates Paul Pierce and Jason Terry after the 2013 season.

It took an extra five minutes, but the new-look Brooklyn Nets got the job done in overtime Tuesday night in Washington against the Wizards 111-106. And it’s safe to say that the Nets would not have notched their opening preseason victory if not for one of their key – and unheralded – pickups this offseason, swingman Andrei Kirilenko.
