Though the Atlanta residential real estate market is showing some signs of life, the game is still very much controlled by buyers. If you are a Curbed reader that counts oneself among these buyers and have been scouring the Landmark Buckhead Estate sub-market for a good opportunity, take heed of this listing that recently went back on the market on Andrews Drive for $10,900,000 (following an $850,000 price cut). Its name is Rossdhu (yes, it has a name), which was taken from some Scottish clan's ancestral home in Scotland (Atlanta connection unknown). It was built in 1918 on one of the lovelier hills in Peachtree Heights West, and though we'd imagine the folks that built it would be taken aback by views of the Buckhead skyline from the grounds and the modern looking equipment in the gym, a restoration would appear to have returned it to a reasonable facsimile of its original glory. The main house has 7 bedrooms, 8.5 baths and six fireplaces spread among its 12,000+ square feet. And from its Tudor windows you'll gaze upon nearly 5 acres of highly-manicured grounds with a pool and formal'ish gardens. The photos really tell the story; something tells us that a buyer with some combination of a large family, a voracious appetite for entertaining, dogs (hell, maybe even horses) and an appreciation for grand spaces will be very happy here.
