Traditional Peachtree Heights West manse flies off market at $2.5M

Less than a day on market at that price seems lightning fast, even for a sprawling, fanciful Buckhead property

Immediately after listing, this two-story traditional brick estate in Peachtree Heights West near Peachtree Battle received a contract, essentially taking it off the market almost before it made an appearance.

Perhaps it’s the neoclassical touches made famous by architect Philip Shutze and incorporated by Atlanta architect Bill Baker that attracted a buyer.

Maybe it’s the expansive kitchen that spills over into the massive family room, both filled with natural light thanks to the kitchen’s large picture window and the floor-to-ceiling wall of glass in the family room.

Of course, the oversized master bedroom on the main floor also is impressive. And it includes access directly onto the covered porch overlooking the swimming pool.

The swimming pool, though, is quite underwhelming compared to the house itself. Even with an accompanying pool house, it seems anti-climatic for such a beautiful setting.

At almost 5,700 square feet, the six-bedroom property also features a formal dining room and living room, plus additional bedrooms on the second floor complete with en suite bathrooms.

Another bedroom can be found above the two-car garage, complete with a covered porch. In addition, the well-manicured half-acre lot provides a lot of privacy.

All in all, it’s certainly quite a package for the $2,495,000 asking price, but still surprising it was snatched up so quickly.

If only every seller could get so lucky.
