In little more than a year since its original listing of $5.5 million, a sprawling 7,379 square-foot Buckhead estate has slashed prices by 3/4 of a million bucks. Most recently, the 220 W. Andrews Drive home relisted with a $175,000 discount.
Now for sale at $4.72 million, can this five bedroom, 7 bathroom, two half-bathroom home sitting on nearly two acres finally find a new owner?
Built in 1927 by influential Atlanta architect Lewis E. Crook — who with his partner designed 40 buildings on Emory’s campus, including the president’s home as well as Druid Hills Methodist Church on Ponce de Leon and the Olympia building — the abode underwent a major renovation in 2013.
The home features a resort-style pool, gourmet kitchen, master bedroom with study and fireplace, an outdoor entertaining area as well as courtyard patio, two carriage houses, one guest house and a "theatre/gaming retreat."
The last time it sold was in 2009 for $4.5 million.
