When some lucky Arizonan named Dan Cavanaugh was chosen from more than 22 million entries last year for the HGTV Urban Oasis Giveaway, he thought his friends were pranking him. Along with an Acura TLX and $50,000 cash, Cavanaugh was given an ultra-luxe, 53rd-floor condo at The Residences at Mandarin Oriental in Buckhead, with stunning finishes and smart décor across its 2,091 square feet. And he wants no part of it. (Those property taxes, ouch!) This week, the two-bedroom unit hits the market, fully furnished, for $1.7 million. (Which is curious, seeing that HGTV valued the total prize package around $1.5 million a few months ago). Anyhow, the sellers are touting the condo's never-lived-in status, luxurious bathrooms, Miele appliances and collection of Atlanta-made artwork. The views, lest we forget, span from Kennesaw Mountain to downtown. An added perk, of course, is access to the hotel's top-shelf amenities (the salt-water pool, the private-car service) and perpetual concierge. All of this wasn't enough to entice some lucky Arizonan to move, but now some high-rolling Atlantan can.
