Most expensive real estate in Atlanta

I always love to check the real estate listings in Atlanta, and thought it would be interesting to take a look at the one of the most expensive properties on the market in Atlanta proper (not the suburbs). This house has been on and off the market for years, and recently went back on the market at $16,500,000, which makes it the second most expensive listing within the city limits (the most expensive is listed at $19,000,000). When this house was on the market a few years ago, the listing indicated that the interior design was by Lady Henrietta Spencer-Churchill, the eldest daughter of the 11th Duke of Marlborough.

This home sits on 17+ acres in a prime area in Atlanta, which is very rare for a private property within the city limits. It is described as a 'classic Georgian limestone masterpiece' with over 15,000 square feet of living space. On the property are two small lakes, horse paddocks and a stable. The grounds include a sculpted English garden, two greenhouses and a terrarium.

What is the most expensive listing where you live?


  1. That's quoit a pad. I'd hate to have to mow the lawn!

  2. You are right! The house is on such a big piece of land that it is not visible from the street, but the area near the front gates is always immaculately landscaped, and the driveway is lined with flowers.

  3. Oh my! That is quite a house! Can you imagine the heating bill? And the gardener's bill?

    I love looking at real estate listings. Thanks for sharing it!


  4. Wow! I think I would always need to carry around my cell phone - I know I'd get lost in a place like that.

    It is a wonderful piece of property.

  5. Wow! All I can think of is...I don't dress NEARLY well enough to live in something like that! I would definitly be mistaken for the help LOL

    This is my first visit to your blog, and I love it!

    Thanks for visiting my blog, and for your kind comments.

  6. Love this! As a fellow Atlantan, I am always curious as to how the real estate market is doing. I love the arbor too.

  7. Wow is right! Stunning. The only thing that struck me as odd is the distance between the oven and the island looks very narrow. I wonder if the door hits the island!You'd think a large house would have a more spacious kitchen.

  8. You are right - the gap between the island and the cooktop is very narrow! I wonder if the island is a moveable piece?

  9. I love looking at this kind of real estate! The gardens are perfect here.

  10. That house is absolutely amazing! There is nothing like it around my neck of the woods - not even close! ;)
