The palatial stone facade sets the stage for Southern formality and elegance — a Buckhead tradition. And yet just beyond, the fully redesigned interiors, spanning over 21,000 square feet, reveal indoor/outdoor spaces for entertaining that feel decidedly more L.A. than Atlanta. Listing agent Debra Johnston of Coldwell Banker Realty in Buckhead describes the prized estate “one of Buckhead’s most exquisite homes.”
Situated on over one acre, the masterpiece property is centered around an expansive layout with grand spaces beaming with incredible attention to detail and doors that open to outdoor entertaining spaces. Double loggias beckon one to a magnificent outdoor setting teeming with fireplaces, outdoor dining and seating, a private heated pool and spa, lush landscaping and a massive flat lawn. Clearly, it’s an estate made for refined entertaining.
The experience for guests begins with the triumphantly formal two-story foyer, as they are welcomed under a gold leaf dome and ushered into the breathtaking living room. From here, natural flow leads to the kitchen with double Calacatta Gold marble islands and the latest Wolf and SubZero appliances A dramatic two-story family room opens from the kitchen, bathing the entire space with warmth and light. Meanwhile, the terrace level offers more impressive opportunities for entertaining. Over 12-foot ceilings and doors lead out from almost every room. A movie theater, gym with sauna, steam, massage room, salon, billiards room, wine cellar, a bar with a kitchen in the main entertaining space, game room and a kids’ playroom that opens to the pool. Ten sets of French doors open from the terrace level to outdoor entertaining spaces including an outdoor bar, lounge area with fireplaces, and another enclosed spa with a fireplace.
Seven bedrooms complete the home, including the owner’s suite — an ode to privacy with a spa-like bath, two dressing rooms and a covered patio. Four large bedroom suites upstairs with a living room, playroom, and balcony with piano overlook the foyer. A fifth bedroom suite upstairs is actually a separate apartment above the garage. A commercial elevator unites all of the levels.
A stunning list of turn-key features and amenities give the residence a bespoke quality, from a commercial elevator to an electric train display on the third floor, full smart home automation, an oversized 4-car garage, motor court and much more. As a bonus, “the furnishings are also negotiable and are almost new and consistent with the home’s overall design,” adds Johnston.
A sought-after location in the heart of Buckhead places the future property owner within walking distance to Pace Academy and minutes to the best shopping and dining in Buckhead.
