Single Family Homes
Situated high on a hill on 3+/- acres in Buckhead, this stunning Mediterranean Villa style residence was masterfully designed by Norman Askins, architect, in 2002. This home oozes with glamour. The rooms are very grand, 10-12 foot ceilings on all three levels, exquisite crown molding and door pediments throughout. Beautiful arched hallways perfectly symmetrical, in keeping with the Classical architecture style, run lengthwise through the house on both the main and terrace levels. The front living and dining rooms have floor-to-ceiling pairs of arched French doors, opening to a limestone veranda that stretches across the front of the house with breathtaking views of Atlanta! An interior hallway leads to the master wing, with an adjoining sitting room with heart of pine built-in bookcases and fireplace, his and her closets and bathrooms. Located on this same wing is one of the most extraordinary features of the home: the gracefully curved staircase with a wrought iron handrail and caste gold motifs that swoop from the terrace level all the way up to the top floor, culminating in an artfully designed wrought iron oval skylight. The upper floors house five bedrooms, an office niche and a center room designed as a study-library. Wide plank heart of pine floors run throughout main and upper level floors. The casual entertainment areas on the daylight terrace level complete the house. Located In the club style living room are a full-size bar and wine cellar. Additional rooms include the billiard room, state-of-the-art media center, workout room, and guest bedroom. Stone floors cover the entire terrace level. A sweeping lawn leads to the Provence-style guest and pool house with a bedroom, full bath, kitchen and living room overlooking the pool.
Atlanta is a city of resurgence. The latest catalyst for growth was spurred by Atlanta’s hosting of the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games. With the eyes of the world looking on, it rose in status as the capital of the New South to a city of international significance and a pioneer of the American luxury property marketplace.
