Back in 1998, the house on this lot sold for a mere $450,000, according to Zillow. Then someone put this big old thing here in 2005, which last sold for $2.3M in 2011; it now seeks $2,595,000. Worth it? Amenities include a pool and guest house, a barrel-tiled roof, a paved patio, custom ironwork, cypress ceilings and hardwood floors. For a 4,760 square foot home, it manages to avoid the obvious pitfalls of McMansion design, which is always fortunate in ATL Million Dollar listings. Once you haul away the velour orange couches, the place will be quite fabulous, indeed.
