Pools and gardens and waterfalls, oh my! It's Outdoors Week, and you know who does outdoor spaces like nobody's business, right? Wealthy Atlantans — that's who! Have a look-see at some of the coolest, greenest, most serene outdoor chill spots currently on the market in Atlanta. They run the gamut from a little pricey to ungodly expensive, but hey — you can't put a price tag on summertime peace and quiet.
· 166 W. Wesley Road NW [Zillow]
The pool is both centerpiece and secondary to the gardens at this $3-million manse near Buckhead.
· 435 King Road NW [Zillow]
Per the listing, this $10-million estate in swanky Tuxedo Park offers the ability to enjoy the outdoors with all of this: "Outdoor swimming pool/spa, cabana with drop down TV, full kitchen and full bath, 2 separate outdoor sitting areas with fireplaces." It's been on the market forever, but the price isn't budging.
· 1325 Monte Carlo Drive NW [Zillow]
A three-acre, $6.75-million estate complete with "the only double infinity edge pool that overlooks" the neighborhood's Elarbee Lake. A basketball court, too. It's also been on the market for quite some time.
· 1873 Volberg St. NW [Zillow]
This house in the Underwood Hills area asks "just" $399,000 and somehow has "no grass to cut," but the 0.6-acre property offers everything necessary to enjoy the outdoors in peace.
· 701 Andover Drive NW [Zillow]
No pool here, but two plush acres, a massive back porch, a stone fire pit and a healthy sized vegetable garden bring a natural feel to this $1.9-million Buckhead mansion.
· 2973 Habersham Road NW [Zillow]
Lots of ivy here, which is fitting for any German-style Tudor that boasts plenty of hilltop greenspace, a modestly sized pool and outdoor kitchen.
· 1300 Monroe Drive NE [Zillow]
What's a random list without a house nicknamed "The Cube"? When you think modern you don't necessarily think of the outdoors, but this place is an urban oasis — it's directly on Piedmont Park with unobstructed (and private) skyline views, and the pool isn't half bad either.
· 1586 Cave Road NW [Zillow]
Secluded, creek, waterfall, pool, several outdoor chill spots. And it's on Cave Road, no less.
· 752 W. Wesley Road NW [Zillow]
The pool isn't anything tremendous, but there's something about its turquoise-ness, the relaxing cabana-type set up and the surrounding foliage that whisper "awesome" in your ear ...
