For the second time in a week, a traditional-style testament to the durability, enduring appeal, and overall quality of architect Neel Reid’s 1920s designs has reached the open Atlanta market.
This example on Cherokee Road in Buckhead—a 1923 six-bedroom consisting of more than 6,700 square feet—is being listed for the first time in three decades.
It joins a Colonial-style Reid design with a “Greek revival twist” near Fernbank Museum that officially went active at $2.2 million five days ago.
Asking a buck short of $5 million via Beacham & Company Realtors, the Peachtree Heights West residence occupies 1.6 manicured, largely private acres just south of the Atlanta History Center.
Reid, considered among the most prestigious residential architects in city history, sited this estate atop a hill with a swooping drive. It was completed three years before he succumbed to a brain tumor at age 40.
Described by marketers as “classic,” “amazing,” and “simply a beautiful home,” the property includes six and a half bathrooms, a functional guest house, and pool grounds that qualify as stately.
Throughout ITP Atlanta, it’s one of about 20 homes and lavish condos listed around $5 million and higher right now.
It’s certainly not every Atlantan’s cup o’ tea, stylistically speaking. But as the video accompanying the listing testifies, there’s little question this century-old residence remains refined.
