Sure, this 1918 landmark property in serene Peachtree Heights West pays homage to Scottish royalty. Sure, it represents the finest in Atlanta's Tudor architecture. But what strikes us as even more impressive is behind the mansion: a pool with a real damn diving board, that relic of less apprehensive times when summertime entailed a concussion or two. Anyhow, this is "Rossdhu," a 12,700 square-foot, brick-built wonderland that's about as Old World as Atlanta gets. The ask is $7.95 million, but that's down from $10.9 million just two years ago. What's in a name? Realtor.com wrote in 2011 that Rossdhu harkens to "a like-named mansion located in Loch Lomond, Dunbartonshire (Scotland) that is the ancestral home of the Colquhoun clan, a prominent bloodline that dates back well beyond the Middle Ages." The home is lovely, if six regal fireplaces and Robert-The-Brue aesthetics are up your alley. The medieval wealth showcase consumes four-plus acres on prestigious and private Andrews Drive, which could help in warding off the English. For those keeping score at home, the Walkscore here is an irrelevant 72.
