For $3.3M, ‘flawless’ Druid Hills home makes case for being Atlanta’s grandest Tudor

This 7,100-square-footer from the 1920s is thoroughly updated with modern sensibilities

Whether this sprawling, remade Tudor from the 1920s is “flawless,” as the listing posits, is a matter of subjective taste. But whether it’s impressive is undebatable.

As any Atlanta home that costs $3,250,000 should be.

Listed this week with Dorsey Alston Realtors, the seven-bedroom manse of 7,141 square feet is one of the most expensive ITP houses for sale south of Buckhead right now—but the second priciest in the neighborhood, behind a more stately manse from 2010 a block away.

It occupies a deep, manicured acre on prestigious Oakdale Road near Fernbank Museum.

Inside, it manages to be contemporary in a way that doesn’t disrespect the classic Tudor origins. Smart-home tech controls alarms, lighting, and the sound throughout.

Immediately upon entry, visitors are greeted with a blend of classic touches (wooden beams) and more contemporary decor and furnishings.

For big-bucks buyers who wouldn’t consider this much space a costly burden, the highlights here are many.

They include a marvelous screened porch that overlooks a full outdoor kitchen, a kitchen that’s as huge and functional as it is handsome, a full gamut of entertainment downstairs, and an apartment-sized master suite with herringbone marble and a steam shower.

One thing missing, for this climate and this price: a pool.

The property last traded for $1.16 million in 2015, which means the renovation was truly substantial or this hot housing market has really come off the rails.
