Upon its completion in 2005, this 20,000-square-foot Colonial by the Bill Harrison Designs firm epitomized the dream home of a retired UPS executive and his wife.
The Roswell property has served as the couple’s residence ever since. In 2012, though, the home landed on the market for an asking price of $5,750,000.
Across the ensuing years, it’s bounced on and off the open market, accompanied by a change in real estate agents as well as a series of price cuts.
Per the current listing, some renovations were completed on the house in 2014, although it’s not entirely clear what was remodeled.
Today, the six-bedroom, 10-bathroom home is seeking $4.5 million. In return, future homeowners would enjoy extensive crown molding, a whole lot of columns, a hand-carved fireplace, an elevator of course, and even a 1,300-gallon aquarium.
Plus, the basement is outfitted with a rec room, home theater, fitness center, and hair salon. Yes, that’s right. A hair salon. And parking—even by Atlanta standards—should be more than sufficient with the six-car garage.
In fact, extensive parking in the lengthy driveway will go a long way when entertaining friends and family. That is, if they’ll drive OTP.
Will the latest price adjustment finally move this supersized palace? That remains to be seen, but one thing’s for sure: A taste for opulence is required.
