Real Estate Deathmatch: Brookhaven Oddity vs. Vinings Castle

New, 9 comments

Who will win this battle of WTF decadence?

Much like people, homes have distinct personality traits. An overeager home gives off a vibe of desperation, while a classy abode can charm the pants off you. Some digs have halitosis and a weak handshake, while others look you square in the eye and tell you it's an honor to meet you.

Sometimes, a home gives off an awkward vibe as it stands in the corner fidgeting. And sometimes a home is just so strange or unusual that you can't get it out of your head, for better or worse.

We've found two such residences inside the perimeter, and we're pitting them against one another in the latest installment of Real Estate Deathmatch.

Two homes enter. Only one (bizarre) home leaves.

In the blue corner, boasting a style that seems to defy all logic and classification, totaling 2,840 square feet and hailing from Brookhaven: 4199 Peachtree Dunwoody Road:

And in the red corner, we have a sort of, well ... unique ... castle beside a river. With nearly 5,000 square feet of Normandy-style custom living space, this 3250 Farmington Drive abode is located in Vinings:

^ The $1.79 million castle features an insane staircase (see photo) and some picturesque views of river rapids that run right behind it. Like, literally right behind it. Also, there's five bedrooms, three and 1/2 bathrooms and a six-car garage. Yeah, six.
