This grand $5.9 million home's listing begins with a bold statement: "One of, if not the finest, private gated estates ever to become available in Atlanta." That seems hyperbolic until you delve into the photos of the lavish grounds, which are every bit as impressive as the house itself. We're talking 8.2 immaculately landscaped acres of ponds, waterfalls, gazebos, fountains, tennis courts and delightful koi fish. And let's not overlook the putting green, swimming pool, pool house with outdoor bar and hot tub. All that before you even get to the house. The main house, that is... there is also a "charming" separate guest house on the property that appears to be larger than most single-family residences. The 12,293-square-foot home has seven bedrooms, six full bathrooms (and three half baths), a well-equipped gym, wine cellar, private in-law suite, spa with steam room and sauna and billiards room. The movie theater has sparkly stars on the ceiling of its lobby area and its own ticket booth. A ticket booth! Imagine the possibilities! With a two-story foyer, six fireplaces and a gourmet kitchen, maybe it's not hyperbole after all?
