Atlanta’s Buckhead area is full of notable estates but even by Buckhead standards, this home is memorable for size and scale as Curbed remarked when it was first listed. Ensconced on over two acres, the home was built in 2006, a three year project that involved a high level of craft and skill.

The Beaux Arts style home is constructed of concrete and slate, with windows and doors custom made in the Loire River Valley and installed by French artisans brought to the United States for the project. The level of craftsmanship represents the pinnacle of home building in the American South.

Designed not only to reflect the quality of lifestyle of a forgotten age, this home was also carefully crafted to house a modern family.

This is an heirloom home designed to last hundreds of years and represents a seldom available opportunity to secure what is certainly one of the South’s most important residences.

The main floor includes a mix of both larger spaces for entertaining as well as more intimate places such as an elegant book lined study.

The grounds include a guest house as well as a six-car garage. This home is listed for $10 million with Harry Norman and is showcased by Luxury Portfolio.
