If you pay $2.15 million (plus $1,709/month in HOA dues) for a 2,895-square-foot condo — even a gorgeous one with breathtaking skyline views — it's fair to expect some amenities. Fortunately, the seven units currently available at The Residences at The Mandarin Oriental deliver. The homes, which range from this one's size to 5,198 square feet for $1.9 million to $4.3 million, offer standard features like a fitness center, pool, secure parking, storage facilities and 24-hour security. But those are just the start. Residents living on the top 27 floors of the 42-story five-star Buckhead hotel also enjoy 24-hour IT assistance, private entrances and elevators and discounts on spa treatments, yoga and salon services. When it comes to dining, they can choose between cashing in their 20 percent discount at one of the hotel's on-site restaurants, getting 24-hour room service or bringing in a private chef to cater their family meal or dinner party. A dedicated concierge provides everything from 24-hour valet and same-day dry cleaning to wake-up calls, car washes and dog walking. It might seem that luxury apartments with prices from $534 to $827/square foot would be slow to sell, but the Mandarin Oriental, Atlanta, reported $20 million in sales last year alone.
Unit 34A is a newly completed two-bedroom designed by Harrison Design Associates with interior design by Barbara Westbrook. Like all residences in the building, the kitchen includes high-end Wolf and Subzero appliances. The layout is bright and airy with 11-foot ceilings throughout and enough white paint and cabinetry to make even the most minimalist homeowner pine for some colorful art. It is, in a word, stunning. The best part of all? The view. The skyline of Buckhead provides an inspiring backdrop whether you are in the bedroom, on the balcony next to the fireplace or even in the bathtub. Fancy doesn't begin to describe it.
