'Most Spectacular' Buckhead Mod Home Re-listed $5K cheaper

New, 8 comments

More than 8,000 square feet, 2 acres, and an indoor pool

An Atlanta residence once billed as one of the city's "most spectacular" moderns is back on the market roughly a year after being listed at $4 million.

The difference now? 5,000 bucks.

Surrounded by 2 lush acres, this 1982 compound by renowned Laguna Beach architect Fred Briggs — who also designed this California home in 1969, from which the Atlanta residence apparently borrowed inspiration — is right around the corner from the Governor's Mansion in Tuxedo Park. It boasts an indoor pool, Creston home automation system, and a full-blown fitness center.

It listed for $3 million in early 2013 and eventually sold in 2014 at $2.62 million.

After some upgrades — including hardwood plank flooring from France, an overhauled kitchen, and a small fortune's worth of chandeliers — the more than 8,000-square-foot home went on the market in June 2015 at $4 million, and the listing was removed three months later.

Now re-listed at $3,995,000, it'll be interesting to see what that a $5K discount (and even hotter housing market) can do.
