See This Shutze-Designed Buckhead Mansion Before its Demo

At the beginning of the year, it came to light that the CFO of Cox Automotive had dropped $2.2 million on a Tuxedo Road mansion designed by noted architect Philip Trammell Shutze. While many would spend that serious dough on a 1938 stunner and plan to maintain it, according to plans submitted last week to the city, the new owner intends to demolish the house. Submittals to the city indicate that the future holds the construction of a 10,000-square-foot replacement, necessitating the removal of not only the historic home but 60 trees. It may be a long shot to save the home, but for those wanting to snag a piece of history — or simply take a look around — there will be an estate sale this weekend at the home. The agent operating the sale is touting wares such as a "camel back chippendale sofa," large brass eagles and loads of books, so there's bound to be something for everyone with loads of cash.
