Somewhat Understated Mansion In the Hushed Forests of Jett

Cutting through the quiet, dense forests a mile or so east of where the Chattahoochee River winds through Sandy Springs is one of Atlanta's most beautiful streets, Jett Road. Many of the homes on Jett that can be seen from the road are spectacular, but often the grandest are hidden behind acres of lush foliage. While the bare trees of "winter" (is that what we're calling these stretches of rainy, 60 degree weather occasionally interrupted by a cold, sunny day?) may expose today's featured listing to prying eyes, privacy is still abundant for this house on 2.36 acres. It is certainly enormous and expensive, but we appreciated that these characteristics are a bit muted as compared to peer properties. While a lack of furniture and decor project an empty feel and inhibit the house from fully revealing its beauty, the tasteful architectural flourishes and scale of the spaces are easy enough to discern. And built in 2010 on an apparently generous budget, the materials, finishes and fixtures/appliances are high-grade luxury, state of the art. The asking price of $3,395,000 reflects a recent price cut of some $430k. Anyone out there looking for plenty of room to stretch out in privacy just outside the city limits?
