In this weekly feature on Clicks & Mortar, we bring you the most notable or interesting property we can find in the Atlanta metro area. This week’s featured over-the-top property is...
This unexpectedly grand neo-Italianate mansion sits imperiously as the only one of its kind among the modest Craftsman bungalows that encapsulate the Virginia-Highland vibe. With a brick facade that defies historic aesthetic conventions, and suburban proportions that make it (literally) stand a cut above all the other houses on the block, this custom home is a true eye-popper. But if you think the exterior is over the top, just wait ‘til you see the inside!
This 6300+ square-foot mansion has four bedrooms, four full baths, and two half-baths, all spread out over three levels. If you don’t care to truck up the staircase that graces the grandiose two-story foyer, simply find the elevator and you’ll be able to access the floor you need with ease. Beyond the 4BR/4BA configuration, the obsession with fours continues with four fireplaces and four--count ‘em!--four professional-grade Viking ovens in the cavernous gourmet kitchen. I guess somebody reeeeaaallllly loves cooking.
The finished terrace-level daylight basement contains a full bar, one of the aforementioned four fireplaces, a guest suite, and home gym, making it a great place to accommodate friends and family you’re trying to impress. And the master suite, aside from having a balcony and luxurious bathroom, has a walk-in closet-slash-dressing room that any fashionista or shoe fetishist would absolutely die for! For those of more bookish persuasion, there is an office/library, also complete with a fireplace suitable for curling up next to in a wingback armchair whilst reading leather-bound fine literature.
Purchase this home and you’re sure to be the talk of the neighborhood. Best of all, the house has been pre-inspected for all of those uncritical buyers just chomping at the bit to shell out the $1.199M asking price. Mamma mia!
