This weeks Over-the-Top Property is the perfect blend of historic architecture and modern amenities. This 17,943 square-foot mansion was designed by famed architect, William T. Baker, whose hope was to create a perfect replica of a traditional English home. Listed at $12,900,000, the Woodland Hills Manor boasts 7 bedrooms, 7.5 baths, and sits on a private 5 acre wooded estate just off of W Paces Ferry Rd.
The home is constructed from Wissahickon Schist, a special stone imported from Pennsylvania, and is accented with Indiana limestone and traditional English roof tiles. The limestone front door surround protects the heavy oak door and its leaded glass panels and hand-carved linen-fold panels.
The centerpiece of the entry hall is the grand oak staircase with its 2-inch-thick panels in period style. The dining room, which has a lofty cathedral ceiling banded by heavy timbering, is overlooked by a minstrel gallery. The vaulted family room provides a comfortable family sitting area adjoining the kitchen and breakfast room. Just outside of the family room is a large cover porch with a fireplace and barbecue grill.
Just some of the amenities in the four finished floors of Woodland Hills Manor include a full home movie theatre, arts and crafts area, swimming pool, formal gardens, two oversized kitchen islands, an elevator, and a 1500-bottle wine cellar.
No detail was overlooked in the building of the Woodland Hills Manor. With its hand-selected materials and functional floor plan, the estate provides luxury living with the benefits of modern technology.
