New listing: 876 Crest Valley Drive, Atlanta
Posted by thunsicker in New Listing on July 9, 2021
Timeless, private, luxurious: 876 Crest Valley Drive is a home apart, with the look and feel of a Mediterranean villa, surrounded by private, level grounds, and anchored by a spectacular indoor/ outdoor stone veranda and infinity pool area.
The first impression is straight out of the south of France or Spain’s Costa del Sol, with the tile roof echoed in the deep arched doorways and windows. The elegant facade is underscored by quality concrete construction, copper gutters, and all new home systems.
As you step inside, a gorgeous staircase sweeps upward in the center hall; dining and living rooms open through arched doorways on either side of the hall and then you are drawn forward toward the oversize french doors opening out onto the veranda.
Warm stone floors run throughout most of the home’s living areas and the light plaster walls are punctuated by rich, dark wood doors and trim.
Arches and curves are a key element to the home’s aesthetic, from the staircase to the doorways and windows. You’ll find these lovely details echoed throughout the home, starting with the entrance.
The loggia runs along the rear of the house, bathed with light from its wall of windows and doors and overlooking the outdoor space, verandas, pool, and lawns.
Elegant but casual, the living room has soaring windows overlooking green space and a fountain, on one side and a grand limestone fireplace on the other.
It adjoins both the informal round breakfast room on one side and the kitchen on the other.
The open kitchen is a masterpiece: impeccable finishes and appliances, it flows seamlessly with the elegant living room adjacent to it. Separate full refrigerator and freezer and a butlers pantry provide for all of your storage needs and doorways out to the covered veranda make outdoor meals a breeze. There is a yet-to-be-used brick built pizza oven just outside as well!
With practically acres of burnished counter tops, the island works as a serving area for parties, a spot for a quick bite to eat, or a wonderful workspace for the chef to create.
Handcrafted just outside Paris, the La Cornue range with its deep enamel finish and brass accents has double ovens and a custom hood, truly a chef’s dream.
The home’s formal dining room has space to easily seat ten or more. Niches for art, chandeliers and open fireplace create the perfect ambiance for a dinner party or memorable holiday gathering.
Rich wood panelling and darker wood floors transition the bar and study from the airy elegance of the kitchen and entertaining spaces to a cozier, more intimate room.
The intricate and detailed woodwork and oversized fireplace maintain the richness of the home’s aesthetic, complimenting the airiness in the living and dining rooms.
There are six brick-built limestone fireplaces throughout the home, with beautifully carved surrounds, each unique and proportioned to its space.
The spectacular vaulted owner’s suite is on the main floor – an entire wing of the house, in fact – with direct access to the veranda. Plaster, stone, and arching windows surround you with light and space; wide plank wooden floors, natural beams, and limestone fireplace add warmth and texture.
The adjoining bath is in an atrium-like space, clad in light marble and mosaic tile finishes; deep soaking tub, separate shower, and dressing areas complete the suite.
With brushed silver accents and an abundance of natural light, the bath is subtle and serene, yet incredibly luxurious.
Upstairs in the central part of the home are four ensuite bedrooms. Connected by a hall and balcony overlooking the pool area and sweeping lawn and trees, each has private balcony access via double french doors.
The outdoor living areas are just as spectacular as the interior, with a covered portico and seating around a large fireplace, then stepping down to the veranda surrounding the infinity edge pool. With multiple seating areas and wide doorways connecting to the interior rooms, it is really a seamless entertaining space with plenty of room for outdoor lounging and dining.
Surrounded by stonework and overlooking the lawn, the pool’s waterfall and natural look finish create a tranquil, relaxing atmosphere. The pool house contains two of the home’s bedrooms and has the option to be expanded with a second floor.
Unusual in the area’s hilly terrain, the level two-acre lot is perfect for children or pets to run and play. Fully fenced and secure, the estate is your own private oasis.
With a property of this level of detail, it’s impossible to fully appreciate without seeing it in person. For more information on this unique property, you can take a look at the listing on my website and then reach out for an appointment to view. I will be showing to qualified buyers this week, so please reach out for more information.

2017’s Top 10 Real Estate Sales in Atlanta
Posted by thunsicker in Atlanta Real Estate on March 5, 2018
Number 1 is back on the market after just a year. Its listed for a couple million more than its last sale price. It’s a beautiful home, fabulous location and may make the top 10 list in the future as well. It took 8 years to sell the first time and with 4 years of inventory at the over $2M price point it may take a while this time as well.
This home is beyond your wildest dreams as well and the purchaser actually bought the lot behind to make a larger yard for her children. It seems a lot of Atlanta’s rich and famous are locating within walking distance of this home. This one took 6 years to sell.
This one didn’t take as long to sell; it was on the market for just over a year. But with 6 acres at the end of a prestigious street and bordering the Chattahoochee River, this was a rare find.
This one was theAtlanta Homes & Lifestyles Home for the Holidays Designer Showhouse in 2015 and sold in just 2 years. It is undergoing extensive additions and renovations since its purchase as well.
New Construction and location helped this one sell in under a year, but for only 80% of the asking price. That’s a motivated and realistic seller!
Originally designed by renowned architect Neil Reid and fully restored, this historic home is on 2 acres. Add to that its prime location and you can see why it made the top 10. This home was on the market for 2 years.
Originally listed in 2010 as new construction, this sale price has a lot to do with square footage. It was originally listed for $10M but ultimately sold for $4,695,000.
4.34 acres on a prime location on Valley Road makes this property worth its high price. Originally listed 2 years ago, this sold for 72% of the list price.
After 2 years on the market, it is yet to be seen what will happen with this 1926 Schutze historic property that was once a Designer Show house. There has been an application in for subdivision of the property, so stay tuned to what’s behind this purchase.
After 6 years on the market this property sold at 68% of the original list. It was off the market for a couple of years in 2012 and came back on in 2015 after the market picked back up.
