New listing: 2919 Paces Lake Dr SE
Posted by thunsicker in New Listing on May 13, 2020
Walking into this home has the feel of entering the great hall of an old estate, with soaring beamed ceilings, wormy chestnut panelling, and a stone hearth at its heart! But this custom home creates a sense of place without sacrificing any modern amenities or location.
The timber framing is graceful, supporting a soaring vaulted ceiling across the entire main living space. A recent interior remodel was designed by award-winning residential designers Spitzmiller and Norris .
This room is dramatic from every angle, with a tall stone fire place anchoring a living area at one end, sweeping views over the lake on one side, and a handsome chef’s kitchen on the other.
Tucked into the side of the great hall, the kitchen has a large marble island, double chef’s range and dishwashers. The lowered ceiling brings a cosiness to the space while a bank of windows keeps the room full of light.
The dining room has the feel of a solarium, with floor to ceiling windows on three sides overlooking the lake. A pass through bar and fire place on one wall create a cosy enclosure without interfering with the flow to the living room just beyond.
This recent addition features dramatic vaulted beams which continue in the living room with another wall of glass overlooking the serene lake on one side and the lush plantings in the front of the home on the other.
The master suite is an entire wing of the house with a large bedroom, and beyond it, a private sitting room with the same vaulted ceilings and walls of windows as the solarium-like dining room. Warm chestnut panelling in the room reminds me of the grand old lake lodges in the Adirondacks, effortless but luxurious.
A deep, free-standing bath invites long soaks; two vanities and a walk-in shower, as well as custom built-ins in the large dressing room / closet are thoughtful amenities that bring luxury to the everyday.
Downstairs, past the wine cellar and office with fireplace, is a large suite with bedroom, lounge, and full bath; currently a home gym, it could be a private guest suite, with plenty of light and views of the lake.
Sheltered under the upper balcony is a rocking chair porch and a large dining area. Step down to two more patio areas with seating and room for a fire pit or outdoor yoga space.
Sloping down to the lake and dock, the home has a sunny upper deck, several large flagstone patios and a lawn at lakeside. Wander the path on down to the lake through mature trees and landscaping and enjoy your morning coffee or evening cocktail out on the dock. Looks like the good life to me!
This is a one of a kind home in an exceptional location. Private and peaceful, but you can also walk sidewalks to Vinings Village. It’s really a little slice of heaven! Take a look at the listing online for dozens of photos of this home and give me a call any time to arrange a viewing.
Note: In order to keep everyone safe and healthy in this new COVID-19 reality, I have implemented some additional safety measures and options for home visits. I offer in-person viewings to adults only with masks and either disinfecting wipes or gloves for my clients. I am also offering virtual walk-throughs via Duo and will be doing a Facebook Live tour on Friday (time TBA, so check Facebook for updates). Please feel free to ask about any other ways I can assist in making a home tour a comfortable experience.

SOLD: Tyler Perry’s Atlanta Estate
Posted by thunsicker in Famous People in Atlanta on May 3, 2016
Tyler Perry’s estate at 4110 Paces Ferry Road in Atlanta has sold! This is great news after only being on the public market for a year. It is by far the most expensive home sold in Atlanta in over a year. In the past year, the second place went to 2000 Garraux Road which sold at $6M in August of 2015 , also located by the rear gate of Tyler Perry’s estate.
The home sits majestically overlooking the Chattahoochee River on 17 acres and is 35,000 sq ft. including 7 bedrooms, 11.5 bathrooms, swimming pool, lighted tennis courts, beautifully landscaped grounds, and underground ballroom. You can see it and its parking garage from across the river on Paces Ferry Drive in Vinings (across from Canoe Restaurant).
4110 Paces Ferry was quietly marketed at a higher price point prior to hitting the public market, but entered the Multiple Listing Service a year ago at $25 million. It just closed a few days ago for $17.5 million. Quite a deal for that volume of land in the most prestigious zip code in Atlanta – 30327! The land alone sold for $9M back in 2005 when Perry bought it. A two acre lot in this area is now selling for about $1.5M and a one acre lot is selling for right around a million. So this land alone could be broken up and sold for over $12M.
The publicity a home like this generates for a realtor is national and phenomenal and every real estate agent’s dream. I was able to experience that when I listed Jane Fonda’s loft back in 2004. From what I’ve heard, this sale was to an out of state buyer and I’m sure that type of publicity surrounding this listing is what helps in generating leads for buyers of this magnitude in Atlanta’s luxury real estate market.
As has been reported publicly, Tyler will be building his new home on 1,000 acres he purchased in Douglas County, Georgia, near where the Tyler Perry Studios campus is located. Congratulations to his agents Josh Reeves and Chase Mizell on a job well done.
Most Expensive Homes for Sale in Atlanta in 2013 – up to $28 Million
Posted by thunsicker in Buckhead, Famous People in Atlanta, State of Real Estate Market, Vinings on January 10, 2013
Yes, we do have a home available in Buckhead, in 30327, on Paces Ferry to be exact, for $28 Million.
Sitting high atop the Chattahoochee River on 10 acres…..the only thing I can imagine one would have to complain about is the Lovett School car pool lines. I remember when the current owner bought the land…it was $10M alone and I’m sure this house is being sold at a loss. This estate has every feature and amenity any executive or celebrity would want.
I have not personally been in the home, but it is a pocket listing in town!
But please don’t just call me up and ask to see these fabulous homes….as with most multi-million dollar properties, you’ll need proof of funds from a local bank and references that can be verified before we’ll show you.
I won’t mention the celebrity’s name who owns this home at the request of the agent, but those of you that live nearby will know the house. The next question is: Where is he going? I don’t know. But don’t worry, he’s not leaving Atlanta.
So below is a little bit about the top four most expensive homes for sale in metro Atlanta as we start looking at 2013.
