Alongside mega-mansions such as Tyler Perry’s former Buckhead estate, this eight-bedroom palace off Northside Drive is about as close as well-to-do Atlantans can come to living like rural European aristocracy.
Positioned on 17 rolling, fenced acres between Chastain Park and Interstate 75, this 15,539-square-footer built in 1999 could be mistaken for a country spread. A very lavish country spread.
It’s described as being one-of-a-kind and meticulously cared for over the past two decades, none of which seems exaggerated. Indications are that ownership history leans more toward entrepreneurs than celebrities.
Interesting features include the elevator that services all levels, a kitchen compound so huge it has two fireplaces, the two big garages with suites above them, a sprawling wine cellar and home gym, and one fittingly medieval outdoor playhouse for the kiddos.
Bathroom count is 10 full, three partial. Which should be sufficient.
The property listed this week with Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International for $10.6 million, putting it squarely in the top five of priciest properties within city limits right now.
What’s leading that list? Tyler Perry’s former digs, now substantially discounted to $21 million.
