Shingle-clad residence counts a “sport court” in the basement, swanky pool house

A massive Cape Cod style house for sale right now in Buckhead.
When 10,500 square feet won’t do.
Dorsey Alston Realtors

With an array of dormers and rooflines that mingle with shingled siding and handsome chimneys, this massive property would look right at home in coastal New England, which makes it an anomaly among Atlanta’s mega-houses.

Designed by William T. Baker’s celebrated Atlanta-based firm, the seven-bedroom residence from 2008 still looks fresh, with livably opulent interior design befitting the style and proportions.

But whether the Cape Cod is really, as the listing claims, “one of the most charming estates in Buckhead!” could be debated.

Find it on tony West Wesley Road, between Interstate 75 and the Chattahoochee River, brandishing a whopping 11,000 square feet, nine and a half bathrooms, and a very designer aesthetic that’s heavy on curtains.

It looks well-suited for dinner parties—or athletic leagues.

Beyond the basement level’s bonkers “sport court,” highlights include a wine cellar, four-car garage, darling pool house, and cozy movie room.

The property listed at $4,875,000 this week with Dorsey Alston Realtors, joining less than 10 ITP houses for sale right now in the $4 to $5 million range.
