Originally listed last spring, unique estate epitomizes “easy living” with spacious rooms, outdoor entertaining spaces

Built in 1947 and renovated by Atlanta’s prestigious Summerour Architects, this four-bedroom, four-bath Buckhead home features a blend of European and rustic that could work well for those who love such a mix.

And whose pockets runneth deep.

Reflecting the estate’s Francophile roots, arched doorways and windows are prevalent throughout, as are high ceilings and understated fireplaces.

Paying homage to its country side, the kitchen and breakfast room are pure rustic, with exposed wood beam ceilings, a brick fireplace, and warm hardwood floors.

That rustic side reappears in the master bathroom in the form of a wooden double vanity.

Lords of this manor could take advantage of Atlanta’s (mostly) year-round enjoyable climate with the home’s screened-in porch, swimming pool, and outdoor kitchen.

There’s even a lovely landscaped backyard for additional entertaining space. Plus, overnight guests can stay in the accompanying guest house.

Originally listed last May, the home’s listing was removed in June, and then reappeared on the market last month.

The current asking price of $2.59 million never changed throughout that time, but it’s a surprising drop from the $2.7 million the home sold for in 2007.

Monthly association fees also are required; however, the amount is not disclosed, so it’s hard to say how much they’ll boost the overall homeownership cost.
