Highly detailed, positively huge new-build in Ansley Park aims for ambitious $3.8M

In the shadow of Midtown, the neighborhood’s priciest listing at the moment is a 6,000-square-foot canvas

Zillow defines a mansion as a single home spanning somewhere north of 5,000 square feet. But does the description apply when the property in question fits its context and—consciously or not—disguises its size?

That’s the case on Ansley Park’s Peachtree Circle, where this newly built five-bedroom traditional bring details to mimic the neighbors and pricing that aims to set records.

Listed last week at $3.8 million, the four-level residence replaces a million-dollar teardown. It’s described now as stylistically stunning and geographically convenient, with attractions spanning from the High Museum to the Eastside Trail “just steps” away, per the Harry Norman Realtors listing.

For all its prestige, records indicate just one other Ansley Park home—an 8,100-square-foot traditional “landmark” property that fetched $3.75 million in 2017—has sold for remotely this much in recent years.

Only one other residence, a 1912 renovation marketed as Ansley Park’s “signature home,” has scored north of $3 million.

On Peachtree Circle, staging could obviously warm the interiors, especially in January, but at 6,000 square feet even, it’d require a showroom’s worth of temporary furnishings.

Extra care went into hardwoods described as “flawless,” window choices, and tile work throughout. It counts five and a half bathrooms, a saltwater pool, and one grand master suite, with his and her walk-in closets, a steam shower, and city views from the huge balcony.

Beneath it all is a sprawling terrace level with a fireplace, full bath, and room for building out another private space—should 6,000 square feet not suffice.
