As we mentioned earlier in the week, Vinings is one of Atlanta's more desirable communities...a lovely village square, Cobb County taxes, proximity to several of the city's oldest private schools and close to the Chattahoochee River. Cochise Drive is a particular standout in the area, as its primarily large, gracious homes sit directly on the river bank just down the street from the great swim and tennis amenity. Gazing at the river from the comfort of a home like this is usually a very pleasant affair, except, of course, when it isn't. But this tidewater-style home has the majority of its living space perched high enough to stay dry in even the most severe flood. The photos and broker babble in the listing tell the story here: large, lovely home with all the standard luxury features and a killer backyard backing up to the 'Hooch. $2,100,000? Sure.
