Working in a high-profile career that revolves around the NFL, it’s no wonder sports agent Pat Dye Jr. wanted a place to escape the limelight.
This 11,000-square-foot estate off Moores Mill Road in Buckhead certainly fits the bill.
After purchasing the property in 2008 for a mere $1.25 million, Dye and his wife essentially created the home they wanted from the ground up in 2010.
The result is a family home inspired by a pre-revolutionary Pennsylvania farmhouse, complete with multiple fireplaces and lots and lots of stonework.
Inside, many of the rooms are equally traditional in design with elegant chandeliers, beamed ceilings, and classic built-ins.
However, there’s a more relaxed side to the home as well, with a comfortable TV room, cozy den, and whacky attic playroom the listing claims “could serve as the best lounge area in all of Atlanta.”
The backyard, with its swimming pool, fire pit, and outdoor living room, affords homeowners plenty of privacy, given its location well within the nearly 2-acre property.
And, according to the AJC, the home has hosted its share of NFL draft parties that featured such notables as former UGA player Alec Ogletree of the Los Angeles Rams.
Now, for the asking price of $5,990,000, potential buyers can host their own football parties, whether it’s for their college alma mater or their favorite pro team.
And now, once again ... the lounge:
