Looking for suburban luxury with a celebrity tie-in? You're in luck.

Over the weekend, former Chicago White Sox star Frank Thomas put his six-bedroom, six-bathroom home in Libertyville, Ill. on the market.

Spanning 5,763 square feet and sitting on a three-quarter-acre lot, the home is decked out with stunning moldings, a beautiful kitchen, a home theater, steam shower and -- at the time of its listing photos being taken -- an array of No. 35 decals.

The home has been listed at $1.95 million and was described by listing agent Val Dunn, who declined to discuss the property's seller, as "absolutely picture-perfect, right out of a magazine," according to Chicago magazine.

Thomas -- who earned the nickname "The Big Hurt" -- played with the White Sox from 1990-2005, a time during which he was named an All-Star five times and the American League MVP twice (in 1993 and 1994). At the time of his exit from Chicago -- he signed a one-year contract with the Oakland Athletics for $500,000 -- he had hit 448 home runs, more than twice the number of any other White Sox player in the team's century-plus history. (That number still stands, but Paul Konerko is no longer far behind.)

Thomas also previously owned another Chicago-area home -- a 29,000-square-foot mansion in Oak Brook -- but sold it in 2003.
