Inside the Buckhead Penthouse Almost Nobody Can Afford

New, 5 comments

Who's ready to pony up almost $4.6 million for this sky palace?

Jealous types, beware: The laundry room here puts most Atlanta kitchens to shame.

Take the fancy elevator to the top of Peachtree Road's Ritz-Carlton Residences and behold this luxurious penthouse, created by Robert Tretsch of Harrison Design and offered recently for a whopping $4.58 million.

The art-filled space is decadent but somehow understated, with an emphasis on views that span from "the Buckhead skyline past the greens of Capital City Club to Stone Mountain," as the listing agent puts it.

The condo encompasses more square footage (5,200) than the typical Decatur McMansion — making it one of the largest units in a coveted building that specializes in pampering — but just three bedrooms and three and 1/2 bathrooms.

For music lovers, it has recessed ceiling speakers all over the place, and in the aforementioned laundry room, a double washer and dryer. One stylish corridor unfolds into the next, but unless the listing photos fail to capture them, it lacks views of glowing Midtown and downtown.
