Boasting original details and tasteful updates, this 1929 Tudor mansion in Peachtree Battle is fit for Atlanta royals who don't mind taking a few stylistic chances. Set on just over an acre, the five-bedroom, four-and-three-half bath home is listed for a not-too-overwhelming — by Buckhead standards — $1.84 million. Contemporary design flair melds with old detailing and historic elements, creating a fused style that seems to work well. Large leaded-glass windows spy the sprawling grounds and welcome in lots of light. Outside, the backyard slopes away from the house, and a massive green lawn is perfect for rolling down after a few steins of Mead. The discerning mansion-buyer, it must be noted, might find that room painted shiny blue a bit under-the-sea crazy, but for the most part, this olde house is spot on.
