Come on — no pool?
Sure, backyard swimming holes can be drawbacks in some cases, but for a brick-built Morningside castle asking $25,000 shy of $2.5 million, one would expect a more functional water feature for relief from Atlanta’s long, oppressive humid season.
Otherwise, this mondo Tudor doesn’t skimp on anything — and it appears to do everything quite well, for buyers who wouldn’t feel lost in nearly 5,000 square feet. Built in 2012, it’s the kind of home that seems capable of enduring a century or two, thanks to sturdy materials and what the listing calls “incredible workmanship.”
Inside this five-bedroom showplace, the goal seems more a cheerful, comfortable experience than a gaudy display of wealth, from the chipper wall colors to Cornbread folk art.
According to the listing, the property is loaded with smart home technology, offering a (relatively tasteful) home theater and a legion of recessed ceiling speakers
Other high-end perks include the 400-bottle wine cellar, the two dishwashers, brands like Wolf, Sub-Zero, and Grohe everywhere, and the master bathroom’s Carrara marble, heated floors, and a rainfall shower-head(s) large enough to simulate actual rainfall.
That being said, the highlight could be the private screened porch, with its swing and many seating options gazing down upon a deep wooded lot and very handsome backyard where nobody’s swimming.
