Seeing this listing got us thinking historically. We thought back to the time when wealthy planters like Thomas Jefferson would travel to Paris on U.S. business and find themselves exposed to the high culture of Europe, some of which they'd bring back. In addition to an astute renovation and modern, sophisticated decor, this most proper 'plantation' estate on 6 acres on Mt. Paran has all the features one expects from a $4,995,000 property. For instance: 5 bedrooms, 5 baths and 2 half baths in the main house, a 3 bedroom guest house, stables, a pool, a tennis court, a "baker's kitchen," gym, music room and plenty of other items you can find in the broker babble. But one must behold the entirety of the photo gallery to completely grasp the grandeur of this spread. Buckhead has its fair share of spectacular properties, but we haven't seen one like this in a while. Lovely.
