Atlanta Mansion for Sale

 This 1923 Italianate mansion in the Buckhead section of Atlanta is on the market for a cool 3 million. I came across it in the "on the market" section of Architectural Digest.  I love this section of the magazine! It's so much fun to see fabulous properties available from around the world. The existing decor really needs some help.  I like to imagine how I would decorate the that would be a fun project!

 I love this kitchen.  What fabulous glass cabinets.

 Wow this is an incredible room.  Great mantle, great architraves, great windows.

The gardens look like they could use a makeover too. But they probably have great bones.


  1. You have two photos above of a living room that looks lovely. I particularly like the fireplace on one side and the large windows on the other. But the ceiling looks unusual. What are those panels in the ceiling? Would this have been a common feature after WW1?

    1. Hi Joseph,
      Thanks for your comment. That ceiling, which I believe is wood, does seem very unusual, and perhaps a little out of place, to me as well. I'm guessing it was something the owner or architect saw in Europe and recreated in this house.

  2. Beautiful home. I can't imagine finding the furniture to fill it up, but I would have fun trying! I can understand the 3 million price tag, and it is in Buckhead.
    Happy Friday.

  3. One of Atlanta's great architectural treasures. Architect Philip Trammel Shutze also designed the famous Swan House, now a museum.

  4. Amazing house, what an incredible structure. I normally don't shy away from size, but decorating and filling that house - now THAT would be a mammoth task wouldn't it - lol!
