Here's a challenge to Atlanta real estate curmudgeons: Find fault with this four-level showcase of wealth in Tuxedo Park, a property making its roughly 20th appearance on the market in the last three years. Sure, half of these 20,000 square feet are unnecessary, and sure, some rooms lean a little more classical than most Millennials would prefer. But overall, this place astonishes, and it's sure as hell not marketed to Millennials anyhow. This time, the listing unleashes photos of a svelte home theater, the empty but expansive wine cellar, a decked-out golf simulator room and just-plain-incredible home spa. The custom-built King Road property was the subject of an Architectural Digest feature, and highlights include the pool house with Nana wall doors, the five-car garage, the black-floored indoor basketball court — and everything else. And yet, here this home sits, holding firm at $10 million since it first came on the market in 2011. Despite having seven fireplaces, it proves that ultra-luxury doesn't have to mean gaudiness, even in Atlanta, where homes over $5 million tend to suffer from Aladdin-style fantasies.
