The latest Atlanta property to join the ranks of $4-million-plus aspirants is being marketed as a “European-inspired masterpiece” that will steal the breath of all who enter—as it should for the price.

Tucked along West Paces Ferry Road, a few sprawling lots west of the Georgia Governor’s Mansion, this custom Buckhead four-bedroom could appeal to deep-pocketed fans of both modernism and local classics by the likes of Reid and Shutze.

Designed by the T.S. Adams Studio, the 2013 build is timeless but current, warm without being stuffy, hip without pretentiousness.

And with more than 5,200 square feet, there’s a lot of it.

Listed in recent days by Home Register Atlanta at $4.25 million, 800 West Paces Ferry is buffered away from the busy roadway by greenery, set between a huge lawn and what’s described as a meditation garden.

The interiors are aptly called dramatic, beginning with a double-height living room and including a soaring loggia in the back. Bathrooms (five and a half) outnumber bedrooms.

Well-off techies will cheer the smart-home controls, Sonos sound, Lutron lighting, and security described simply as “high-tech.” The geothermal HVAC and elevator (strangely not pictured) are surprise plusses.

Roughly 30 homes in Atlanta are asking $4 million or more right now, and they’re all in the general Buckhead area, with one Midtown exception.
