Renovated property in high-dollar location didn’t discard period touches

Tucked between Northside Drive and Peachtree Road, due north of Bobby Jones Golf Course, this updated 1924 residence tones down classic Buckhead pomposity in favor of Spanish-style flair and whimsical interior touches.

The stucco-clad looker on Argonne Drive is described as a historic, Mediterranean-style highlight on “one of the best streets in Buckhead’s golden triangle,” where deep lots, long driveways, and immense square footages reign supreme.

A library or den large enough to double as a ballroom.

Punctuated with lovely period moldings and grandiose spaces like the foyer and study, the home is said to have been fully renovated in recent years.

Highlights include the kitchen’s Calacatta marble and pro-grade appliances, the attention to detail throughout, and the inclusion of both a one-room guest house and carriage house with a studio befitting the artist owner.

It isn’t the priciest listing on the street—Spotswood Hall, for instance, is just around the corner—but at least one larger home (with pool) can be had for virtually the same price.

How such a large property (nearly 4,800 square feet) has just three official bedrooms is a bit befuddling, but each of those rooms is positively big, as would be expected.

It listed this week via Harry Norman Realtors for $2,395,000.
