Mind-Blowing Modern Palace Just got $1.3 Million Cheaper

New, 11 comments


For a decidedly un-micro experience this week, we need venture no father than Buckhead's Tuxedo Park, where a years-long renovation turned this 1990 mansion into a decadent, contemporary showplace. How decadent, you ask? This property is sophisticated enough to make cherry blossoms bloom early (unless the photos are old). It's so cool that Playboy once asked to do a photo shoot in the back yard — and was turned down. It was special enough to be the Wall Street Journal's "House of the Day" in 2012. And it's all yours for $5.9 million, which is significantly cheaper than before. Records show this four-story, seven-bedroom, eight-bathroom, seven-fireplace-having, 12,000-square-foot sexy beast was listed for $7.25 million in late 2011 — and then pulled off the market a year later, sans price chops. It shares a cul-de-sac (and a ridiculously low Walk Score of 1) with other $4-million-plus titans. Its eye-popping perks include the 4,000-bottle wine cellar, Venetian plaster walls, elevator, chef-designed kitchen, four-car garage and 15-person home theater with banquet seating and projection screen. The owners, a retired human resource executive and his wife, told the newspaper they were looking to upsize their Colorado home and downsize here. That sounds kind of micro.
