Soaring 12-ft ceilings, arched windows, and a unique octagonal formal living room in a cool neutral color scheme set the mood for the main living level of the home. With an open-flow floor plan, the main level can function as private formal spaces or as a perfect setting for larger parties.


The bright and serene family room has a cozy fireplace, vaulted ceilings, and french doors that open onto the deck with views of the landscaped backyard and pool. Dark hardwood floors anchor the home and flow up the wide staircase to the children’s bedrooms and bathrooms upstairs.


The banquet-sized formal dining room makes a statement with its lush hand painted fine art murals and exquisite woodwork and has ample room for family holiday dinners.


Steps away from the formal dining room is a beautiful spacious chef’s kitchen with white cabinetry and high-end stainless appliances. With an island and bar overlooking the family breakfast room, the space functions as a family hub or as a serving space for chic entertaining.


The large wooded back yard is private and beautifully landscaped. A heated pool and terrace are overlooked by the deck and screened porch off the main living level.


Like a seaside retreat, the main level master suite invites you to stop and drink in the tranquil setting. Shuttered windows and coffered ceiling details reinforce this feeling of an elegant boutique hotel somewhere on the Mediterranean Sea. A walk-in closet with top-of-the-line closet system and an attached sitting room make the suite a true retreat.


Dual vanities, a deep soaking tub and separate shower create a spa environment in the master bath.

The terrace level of the home is where the real fun begins. Complete with a fireplace and lounge, wine room, media room with theater lounge seats and a projector for movies, a billiards room, and bathroom and changing area for the pool, it’s your own private entertainment complex!


A comfortable family room with a fireplace and mini kitchen opens onto the terrace surrounding the heated pool.


A large bedroom and bathroom allows for an office, private guest space, in-law suite, or au pair suite, making it flexible for the changing needs of your family.

Outdoor entertaining is a breeze with mutual-level covered decks and a pool and spa terrace. Hang out in the sun at the pool or retreat to the cool screened in porch.

November Real Estate Update for Vinings and Buckhead

October real estate transaction volume is down in Vinings and Bulkhead, but not as severely as it was in September and August which was dramatically down month over month and year over year.

Vinings numbers are somewhat misleading as the transaction volume has been so low that percentages don’t seem relevant.  The most notable thing to me was that the average sales price was under $800k, which says the main things selling are pretty close to lot prices, not so much resales.

In Buckhead, sales were down 14% year over year and 8% month over month.  Buckhead is a much bigger market, so its most likely a seasonal dip in sales and a lack of inventory in the year over year sales.

Bieber home shopping update

It looks like Justin isn’t ready to commit. According to TMZ, he has decided to rent for three months until he finds that perfect location. Like I said, I didn’t believe the other rumor since that house is so close to the street, but this house, the craziest house in quasi Buckhead (more Sandy Springs than Buckhead), makes sense. His temporary Atlanta home is that of record producer Dallas Austin. The four bedroom 5,500 sq. ft. home resembles a spaceship.

If he wants my opinion, he should just pay the big bucks and buy Tyler Perry’s estate on Paces Ferry Road for $28M. It has the security and privacy he needs, and is such a good location with easy access to I-75 to get intown and go to the airport. This estate would require a lot of upkeep and maintenance with the fabulous grounds and gardens and it comes with quite a hefty tax bill which was  reduced in 2012 to $285,000 but was as high as $397,771 in 2010, though, so I guess his search continues…  I use to have a listing in Ball Ground that has studio already built in, would definitely give him privacy too.  I’ll have to think more about what will fit the bill.

Justin Bieber is home shopping in Atlanta

UPDATE 2/24/2014  Bieber tweeted that he never even looked at this home.  There was even a stunt by morning DJ’s that has been published to make fun of the whole thing.  Anyway, he’s here in a rental but this is NOT going to be his house.  Great publicity for the agent and great exposure for the house is all that really came out of the rumor.


Atlanta is home to many celebrities, and it looks like another one might be heading our way.

Justin Bieber has been looking to make Atlanta his home so he can be closer to the thriving hip hop community. According to TMZ, he has his eye on a sprawling estate off Blackland Road in Buckhead. Listed at $10,950,000, this 16,000 sq. ft., 7 bedroom/13 bathroom home has a lot to offer from energy efficient geothermal HVAC systems to a 70 foot pool/spa, gym, elevator and much, much more.

It is yet to be seen whether he really is interested or if this is just a way to generate interest in this property. According to his published interests – can’t be visible from the street (preferably secluded on 5+ acres), minimum of 10,000+ sq. ft., and lists for between $4 and $10 mil., this may not be the home for him. While the price and size may suit him, we’ll have to see whether he will settle for less acreage; the lot is listed at less than two acres.

Until the property is sold, any number of things can happen. One of my friends would be his neighbor if he did choose this home, she mentioned that she’d stop by with a welcome basket of a couple of dozen eggs :-). I’ll be sure to keep you posted as I always do about celebrity home purchases in Atlanta.

October Market Update

Here are the Prudential Market Updates for Buckhead and Vinings in the month of October:

Sales in Buckhead have dropped month over month and year over year. I believe this is primarily due to decreased inventory, but it is also a seasonal adjustment. As a result with 6 years of inventory available, sales are slowing and inventory is climbing in the the over $2M market.

October Market Update - Buckhead

October Market Update – Buckhead

Vinings remained steady with a much higher increase in sales price.  I believe that is primarily due to the higher end homes (at and over $1M) moving again at a great pace.  Many of those homes had been on the market for quite a while, but with no new inventory coming on the market, I believe buyers finally picked from what existed versus continuing to wait and hope for what they wanted to come on the market.  We had a great flurry of the newer high end homes sell this spring and finally this fall the remodeled high end homes have gone under contract.  That could partially be due to the sellers compromising further in price as well.

October Market Update - Vinings

October Market Update – Vinings

I’m including more specific Vinings data from another source as well that I find to be interesting.

Under $800k

Location:   ZIP 30339
Price Range:   $0 – $799,999
SQFT Range:   0 – No Limit
Property Types:   Residential Detached – All Properties – All Properties
Bedrooms:   0 – No Limit
Full Baths:   0 – No Limit
Half Baths:   0 – No Limit
Year Built:   0 – No Limit

Under $800k

Look at the balancing of inventory to demand that has taken place over the past year in Vinings under $800,000. Inventory has steadily declined and transactions have increased.  This is great news as well. It shows us that homes in 30339 that are priced right will sell.

$800k and Up

Location:   ZIP 30339
Price Range:   $800,000 – No Limit
SQFT Range:   0 – No Limit
Property Types:   Residential Detached – All Properties – All Properties
Bedrooms:   0 – No Limit
Full Baths:   0 – No Limit
Half Baths:   0 – No Limit

Notice the volume of sales in April (which were newer construction over $1M) and then last month.  I’ve pulled this over the past 2 years to show you the significance in the volume change.  There has been pent up demand for the higher end homes, but the remodels weren’t selling this spring and then, as of last month, they are moving.  This definitely sends us a message that buyers want Vinings enough to compromise or set their expectations a bit higher on price points. This is great news for us and also indicates a need for high end homes on the market in Vinings again.

As always, let me know if you might be interested in selling as I have buyers that are still looking!
