Betting on a boomtown like Atlanta can pay dividends—like a nearly 10,000-square-foot place to lay your head. And hang your art.
Available on the market through most of 2019 has been the custom 1987 showplace of Steve Selig, the president and chairman of Selig Enterprises who’s been a player in Atlanta development since well before Hammerin’ Hank broke the record.
The seller of this “Buckhead masterpiece” is the current patriarch of Selig, an active developer that holds an empire of commercial property throughout the Southeast, the majority of it in Atlanta. The company’s splashiest ongoing project at the moment is the multi-tower 1105 West Peachtree, which is transforming a Midtown block.
As for the listing, this six-bedroom “entertainer’s dream home” can be found on three and a half acres off Paces Ferry Road, just west of Interstate 75.
It was initially listed in January just shy of $4 million, and a second price adjustment this week has brought it to $3,250,000, via Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International.
With its somewhat understated Mediterranean leanings and whimsical touches, it’s anything but a typical Buckhead palace. The walls are loaded with pop iconography and a gallery’s worth of originals.
The garage fits four cars—a reminder that the WalkScore of measly 1 is all but irrelevant.
Interior designs by Stan Topol skew toward contemporary without being too cold, and colors are largely neutral. Accessible by virtually the entire main floor, the sparkling pool is a certified highlight.
The property joins about eight non-pending houses around Buckhead priced in the $3.2 to $3.3-million range at the moment.
