Frankly, Atlanta, you should give a damn about this property.
It’s called “Pemberley,” and according to well-documented historical trivia, Clark Gable once attended the 1939 Gone With the Wind cast party here.
More recently, the 5,633-square-foot, Habersham Road estate has played host to fanciful weddings, for brides who’ve desired a touch of the English countryside between Northside Drive and Peachtree Road.
Built in 1935, the property underwent a more recent (and period-appropriate) overhaul by Cooper Carry architects that “resurrected” its charms, highlighted by “unbelievable Greek key moulding,” opulent chandeliers, and a grand spiral staircase, per the listing.
Almost every room depicted in listing photos looks rather enormous. Beyond the big windows, the landscaping and “endless gardens” would befit Old South aristocracy, punctuated by extensive lighting at night and fed by well water.
The tally of four bedrooms, three full bathrooms (plus two partials), and a two-car garage might not be impressive, however, at this price point.
And despite its charms, the property has struggled to move in the past couple of years, undergoing several price-adjustments down to its current ask of $2,375,000. As a rental, it’s sought as much as $12,000 monthly.
Records indicate it sold a decade ago for $3 million.
