The deep trough in which Atlanta's real estate market continues to languish brings with it both misery and opportunity (for those without a home to sell or enough money that it doesn't matter, anyway). There was a time when houses in Vinings' Bakers Farm neighborhood never even really went on the open market, instead trading quietly off-market among a network of families and in-the-know realtors that served them. The appeal for affluent Atlantans is easy to understand- it's an enclave of lovely and spacious traditional homes in close proximity to Buckhead private schools like Lovett and Westminster, tucked away off of Woodland Brook Drive with views of the Vinings Polo Fields. This 6 bedroom, 6 bath, 2 half bath Tidewater spread was built in 1989 but has clearly been updated, and for fans of traditional luxury (a toile room!), there's very little to find fault with. The mature foliage that surrounds the property is a particularly nice touch, especially the garden-y pool scene. The broker babble notes that the $2,195,000 list price was recently cut by some $300k. What a nice time to be shopping for a multi-million dollar properties.
