Atlanta Celebrity Homes
How Atlanta's music moguls, sports hotshots, and stars of big and small screens are living large across the metro.
The 17,367-square-foot English Tudor mansion was built in 1907 for a then-famous clothier. It's got 16 bedrooms and 15 bathrooms. The defunct Expedia listing for the former bed and breakfast boasted of "massive" fireplaces and crystal chandeliers.
Upcoming book launch party benefits Beltline's "Light the Line" initiative. The event is scheduled for May 15 at Ponce City Market. In addition to owning a home in Avondale Estates, author Mary Kay Andrews rents renovated cottages on Tybee Island.
Tucked within a tight-security subdivision, on a palm-studded 13-acre plot a stone's throw from the Chattahoochee, this sterile but sexy compound of nearly 15,000 square feet was built 26 years ago, and upkeep hasn't been its strong suit.
Price-chopped by $7.5 million, the home sold for $17.5 million after being on the market for nearly a year. The as-yet-unnamed homebuyer gets 17 manicured acres, 35,000 square feet, and status as one of the richest human beings in the city.
Joe The Basketball Player bought this nearly 14,000-square-foot house back in 2005, the year he joined the Hawks. It's located among many other large, ultra-luxury cribs on Londonberry Road in that gray area between Sandy Springs and Buckhead.
The movie mogul is apparently in no hurry to offload this lavish, 35,000-square-footer on 17 acres. Or maybe it's a pride thing.
