Atlanta's Own Version of Palazzo Chupi

Posted on 10, April 2012 by csadmin

When you’re buying a condo, you want to seek out a unit that has something a little different - something that’ll set it apart from the rest of the crowd when the time comes to sell. It’s safe to say this Buckhead penthouse has that quality, and then some. Anyone familiar with Manhattan real estate will see a similarity between this building, the Villa at Buckhead, and the somewhat bizarre Palazzo Chupi condo building in the West Village. Both are larger than life pinkish condo buildings with almost ironic classical features. Given the $1,000,000 discount on this unit, it’s safe to say you’re getting exponentially more for your money with our version.

This penthouse comes off as more of a mansion in the sky with its five terraces housing trees and a “yard.” In fact, a few martinis in your jacuzzi could very well make you forget that you’re penthouse level. The views, however, will bring you right back to reality; Kennesaw and Stone Mountains, as well as the many skylines of Atlanta, are beautifully spread out before you. Thank goodness Lenox Square and Phipps Plaza are just across the street, just in case a last minute excursion to Saks or Neiman arises. You never know when you’ll need some extra Baccarat!

The interior of this penthouse is no less impressive than the exterior spaces, even if some of the finishes are glaring evidence of a 1991 construction date, the bathrooms in particular. How about a shiny red Poggenpohl kitchen to wake you up in the morning? No caffeine needed! The photo of the kitchen offers a glimpse of the 500 gallon fish tank, which seems like the perfect accessory for such an exuberant residence. Thirty foot ceilings in one of the two master suites call for some creative interior design. I’m thinking a few dozen disco balls hanging at various levels would really set off the space, really draw your eye up. Okay, maybe I should leave the designing to the designers.
