Sophisticated elegance best describes this custom built English brick and limestone home in the heart of Atlanta's prestigious Buckhead neighborhood. Convenient to schools, shopping and restaurants, this sought after location does not often offer newer construction homes with the quality, fit and finish of this property.
Designed by Harrison Design Associates and built by Mark Palmer in 2000, the three level home is constructed of imported English brick around a steel beam and concrete slab construction. The home has 12 foot ceilings throughout and a combination of herringbone hardwood and travertine marble floors. With six fireplaces, every main room has a focal point. The main floor has a grand entrance hall that opens to a beautiful paneled library, a formal dining room and living room with deep plaster moldings, and a large chef’s kitchen. The kitchen has a 65-inch Viking range with griddle and dual ovens, three Subzero refrigerators, in-counter refrigerator drawers, in-counter steamer and deep fryer, and dual Miele dishwashers. Custom William "O" cabinetry, lava stone countertops and a large island open to a light filled breakfast/keeping room. Adjacent to the kitchen is a beautiful covered limestone loggia with fireplace and Viking grill that overlooks the gardens and storybook bridge over the stream below. The three car garage opens into the mudroom area, with casual powder room, pantry and catering kitchen on the side of the house adjacent to the main kitchen.
A limestone staircase with custom iron railing leads to the upstairs sitting area and three bedroom suites. The master suite has a large sitting area and opens to an outdoor loggia. His and hers closets flank a large master bathroom with heated floors and steam shower. Two additional large bedrooms upstairs have their own full bathrooms and French doors leading to balconies.
The above ground terrace level leads to gracious gardens. The terrace hosts a large guest suite with full bathroom, a 1500 bottle custom climate controlled wine cellar, a fitness room, powder room, a large family entertainment room, and adjacent bar. The wide hallway opens to another covered loggia that is at the garden level and grants access to the beautiful outdoor living space.
Not to be overlooked is the separate in-law suite above the three car garage. With its own entrance, full kitchen, living room, bedroom and full bath, it is truly a comfortable living space. A whole house generator ensures that any power outages do not affect this home. A whole house Linn sound system only adds to the already fabulous entertaining ambiance!
Overbuilt to the original owner’s specification, no detail has been overlooked. Simply put, this quality of construction is rarely found in homes.
