Having lingered on the market for a year, this stately 1940s property in Buckhead is changing sales tactics—an approach that could spell its demise.
Located off Interstate 75 on tony West Wesley Road, just northwest of Atlanta Memorial Park, the 1940 property was originally built for a family that loved equestrian activities and wished to live in a home that felt like a hunting lodge.
More recent years have seen the addition of a chef’s kitchen, a wine cellar, and updates to various living spaces throughout, but those aspects haven’t aided the sale of what’s technically still a three-bedroom house.
It initially listed for just shy of $2.1 million a year ago, with the latest of three price reductions coming in February.
Square footage isn’t specified, but the home’s two-plat lot spans more than 2 acres, with nearly 230 feet of road frontage.
A homebuilder could “reconfigure the existing house to meet modern tastes and build an entirely new home on the [remaining] land, or knock down the current house and build two large houses,” the listing advises.
Perks of the property and location include mature trees, ample space for a pool, and entree into the Morris Brandon Elementary School district. The Chatsworth subdivision is next door.
