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...
If you yearn to live in tony Tuxedo Park (arguably Atlanta’s wealthiest neighborhood) but just don’t dig the old-fashioned grandeur that dominates the area, then look no further. In fact, the slate roof and stone exterior may be just about the only traditionalist features of an otherwise fully customized modern home. This 9900-sq-ft wonder boasts seven bedrooms, nine full baths, and four half-baths. Floors are dark wide-plank hardwood in some rooms and marble in others, and the overall decor gives off a vibe that is classy without being fussy.
This place is fantastic for entertaining. The tastefully designed wide-open spaces are just crying out for a see-and-be-seen industry party filled with beautiful people. The entryway’s balcony and sweeping staircase are just perfect for grand entrances and heartfelt speeches. Abundant french doors throughout the house simply open to reveal even more fabulousness. Even the light fixtures are exciting!
Speaking of entertaining, the streamlined modern kitchen has the requisite subway tile backsplashes, not to mention some ultra-cool stone countertops that run seamlessly over not just the top surface, but also the sides, of the streamlined dark wood cabinetry. They’re made of a gorgeous striated granite--none of that builder-grade TV-static-looking guff here. Oh yeah, and I forgot to mention the impressive chef-quality stainless steel range and double ovens that await your (or your personal chef’s) culinary prowess. Be sure to visit the wine cellar to pick out a nice wine that pairs well with your gourmet meal.
Wanna move this party downstairs? Well, just take the elevator down to the terrace level, where you can treat your guests to a private show in the screening room, which is kitted out with all the latest McIntosh home theater equipment and audio components. Pour some expensive champagne at the mirror-backed bar, and then wander out back to mingle around the artfully designed pool with built-in spa and mood lighting. Your personal chef can cook up a storm in the covered outdoor kitchen. And you won’t have to worry about uninvited interlopers, because this ain’t just any old house--it’s a Crestron smart home featuring fully automated security, lighting, and audio systems. You’ll never have to excuse yourself from a party to restart the music again!
When your exciting evening finally concludes and you’ve bid every last guest adieu, head upstairs to the master bathroom to treat yourself to a nice relaxing soak in the alcove whirpool tub while you contemplate how totally awesome the ginormous high-end shower is, especially since it is clad entirely in tasteful carrara marble and has a built-in bench for relaxing. It’s enough to make you sweat--just like your sauna does after you hit your home gym. But that’s for another night. Tonight it’s time to unwind.
The $12.5M asking price might seem a bit steep at first, but when you think about all the unforgettable good times that you and your rich and famous buddies will have in this home, it seems well worth such a paltry sum. Act now and get this party started!
