Buyers with megabucks to drop on Atlanta houses would be wise to peruse three outlandishly tony places: West Paces Ferry, Blackland, and Tuxedo roads.

All three, shockingly, are in Buckhead.

Those prestigious thoroughfares are home to a few of the listings on this Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous-esque list, with Paces Ferry in the starring role, as usual. But this rundown of the most exclusive properties for sale in the City of Atlanta includes a rich variety of home styles, if almost no geographic diversity.

So have a gander at what most folks will never be able to attain without a recording contract, savory NFL deal, or a life-altering financial boost from the Georgia Lottery.

Note: Not all properties appear on the FMLS, so if you're privy to mega-listings hiding in some obscure place, please drop a line in the comments section for all to see. Also, several lavish condo listings in unfinished towers would now make the cut, but we’re focusing on properties that exist.
