Spanning a mind-boggling 7,400 square feet in “Historic Brookhaven,” this five-bedroom mansion gets medieval with an unreal basement amenity described in the listing as “the ultimate European pub.”
Accessed by a gothic spiral staircase that could double as a portal to hell, the subterranean tavern looks like the sort of place where Shrek would tie one on. It’s replete with an iron-gated wine cellar and what appears to be walls and ceilings of hand-hewn beams.
The pub is certainly a fun perk—and an interesting facet for a property both gaudy and gorgeous.
Located on a flat acre off Peachtree-Dunwoody Road, the home listed this week at $3.6 million and underwent an almost immediate price-reduction to $3,399,000. (Estimated mortgage payments are in the ballpark of $17,000). The property last traded in 2013 for $2.1 million.
Beyond the Euro-wealth facade, the impressiveness begins with the two-story great room and adjacent chef’s kitchen described as “sparkling.”
A bright, airy, and surprisingly restrained palette flows throughout (excluding the dungeon, that is).
The master suite (with wood-burning fireplace next to the tub) overlooks the fairly exquisite pool area and gardens, where you’ll find a heated pool, new gazebo, and a feasting area with outdoor seating fit for the royal family.
And now, to the pub!
