Update April 11th, 2022. This home closed this morning at $1,305,888. It had quite a few offers and several over a million while being listed at $899,900. It was a 7 day cash close and its closed. If you want to know how to get over asking for your home, give me a call. The marketing in this seller’s market is unique and your agent needs to know how best to handle the flurry of activity. If you’re on for over a few days, something is wrong. I can help. This is one I won’t forget for awhile!
Listed March 24th, offers due March 27th.
One of Vining’s classic homes in one of Vining’s most desirable neighborhoods is on the market for the first time in its history. This home was custom built with love and incredible attention to detail by the sellers, who are now looking to pass a bit of their family history forward.
With four sides of brick, this traditional home is timeless in more ways than one. Built to incorporate century-plus antique heart pine flooring from the seller’s parent’s home, this home is a legacy looking for its next caretaker.
The beautiful wide-plank flooring is found throughout most of the home. A traditional floorplan, the formal living spaces flank the entry hall and beautiful staircase, while the kitchen and keeping room look out over the greenery in the back yard.
Wainscotting, detailed woodwork, and functional shutters are among the lovely and well-kept details throughout the home. The rooms are beautifully proportioned with a lot of natural light in every room.
Fully renovated, the kitchen has high quality custom cabinetry, granite countertops and plenty of integrated lighting. Other amenities are a generous double sink, center island, and cabinet paneled appliances.
The kitchen and breakfast room also open onto the screened porch for 3 season indoor/outdoor living.
Adjacent to the kitchen is an enormous laundry room, with generous built-in storage, expansive granite worktops, and plenty of extra room for a freezer or beverage refrigerator.
The family room, anchored by an arched brick fireplace and hearth, opens onto the home’s expansive screened porch. The stunning heart pine flooring continues through this room as well, adding warmth and depth to the space.
Decks are great, but a screened porch in the south cannot be beat! Shaded in the summer and sheltered in cooler months, it becomes an extension of the home’s living areas with the added bonus of breeze and bird song.
While the home is at the top of a large hilly lot, the areas just off the screened porch and the walkout basement are flat and landscaped, making for a usable private space for bird watching or gardening and plenty of play area for children and pets.
With a full master suite on each floor, which include ensuite bathrooms and walk- in closets, living arrangements are flexible and future-proofed, ready for aging in place or multi-generational living.
The secondary bedrooms are also generously sized and there is room for expansion over the garage.
While the walk-out basement is finished and comfortable (with another brick fireplace to chase away any chill) there are stubbed-in utilities for another bathroom, ready for expansion. The home was custom built in 1975 and underwent extensive renovations about 15 years ago including mechanical upgrades, adding a house vac system and an automatic generator to seamlessly handle any power outages.
Set on almost an acre, the wooded lot is private and quiet. 4270 Lansdowne Drive is on a double cul de sac street in an already quiet neighborhood, meaning through traffic (and traffic noise in general) is non-existent.
Close to Cochise Club, Vinings Village, many of the areas best private schools, and in a quiet and walkable neighborhood, this home has a lot to offer, both in location and in impeccably maintained square footage. If you are interested in more details, visit the listing at my website and give me a call to set up an in-person viewing.

The real estate market in Vinings has never been hotter! The spectacular home at 3753 Cochise Drive, Atlanta, GA closed just over 2 weeks ago for what I am hearing is the highest sale price ever in Vinings, somewhere just under $5 million!
And speaking of neighborhoods, this location is unbeatable: 5 acres of beautiful Chattahoochee riverfront property adjacent to the Cochise Swim and Tennis Club. And just across the river in Buckhead is Tyler Perry’s former home, another record-setting Atlanta real estate sale.
The Vinings real estate market has been consistently strong with great resale values over many years, and its always exciting to see that trend continue! I will post more details as they become available.

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.

Buy into one of Vining’s best neighborhoods priced at lot value! Access to the amenities of the Cochise Club are available and there are sidewalks to Vining Village.
The home’s current footprint is a spacious 3,400 sq.ft, but the acre lot leaves plenty of room to expand.

The mature trees on the lot are visible from the large sunroom; the back yard slopes away toward a creek, creating more private surroundings.
There are three bedrooms on the main floor along with the living areas and sunroom; a daylight basement included in the home’s square footage.
If you’re looking for a great lot to build your dream home, you couldn’t ask for a better spot with Vinings amenities and Cobb Co taxes! Take a look at my listing or call me to get all the details on the property survey and options for a remodel or new build. There is so much potential here!

Don’t sleep on this one! This beautifully maintained Vinings townhome looks brand new and has all the comforts of home. The James Creek neighborhood is always in demand so this home won’t last.
Because this townhome is extra wide, it has the feel of a stand-alone house. The main floor has an open feel but with distinct living and formal dining as well as a large, light-filled kitchen.
The eat-in kitchen is huge! Finished with granite and warm wood cabinetry, it has abundant counter space, high quality appliances, a kitchen island, and it still has room for a full sized breakfast table.
A fireplace and built-ins are the focal point of the living area; upgraded trims and panelling and hardwood floors give the room an elegant feel; and adjacent full sized formal dining space is on one side and access to the large deck is on the other.
The home’s bedrooms are just upstairs. The master has tray ceilings and generous proportions; light, bright paint and carpet in the bedroom makes the room feel even larger.
Dual vanities and a soaker tup and separate shower in the master bath just off the bedroom mean no more sharing when getting ready in the morning.
Two additional large bedrooms and a full bath and a laundry room complete the third floor.
The large deck off the living room overlooks a wooded area so you get visual ownership of a green space and privacy without the maintenance!
The home’s terrace level, adjacent to the garage, is fully finished and ready to be a rec room, home office, or gym.
Take a look at the listing here for all the details and give me a call to set up a viewing- I would love to help get you into this great Vinings townhome!

If you’ve ever dreamed of living in a French chateau, here is your chance, no passport required!
Located in Vinings in the prestigious Paces Lake community, this home is refined and elegant with all of the touches and finishes one would expect in a true custom home. With 4-inch thick European stucco, copper gutters and awnings, and a Vermont slate roof, the home’s exterior draws you in for a closer look. A cobblestone drive leads to the grand double door entrance and in to the foyer with a sweeping curved staircase and limestone floor.
The rest of the main floor is a perfect balance of rustic and refined with antique rough-planed pinewood floors or pale textured flagstones, rough hewn antique beamed and plastered ceilings in the keeping room and kitchen and wide plank pine ceilings in the more intimate living areas. Four brick-built fireplaces, including an outdoor fireplace on the bluestone terrace on the rear of the house, each with unique custom mantels, warm the airy living spaces.
All of the home’s main living areas open off the bluestone terrace through curving French doors; the keeping room with a limestone fireplace and arching beamed ceilings flows into the breakfast room and kitchen with beautiful Provenćal finishes and top quality Viking appliances.
A formal dining room and two more intimate living rooms, all with the tall curved French doors are full of detail and beautiful custom finishes.
The master suite is also on the main floor, again with doors opening to the terrace. Generous windows and French doors bring the outdoors inside.
Step into the master bath; you’ll find dual sinks, a deep soaker tub with a mosaic tile surround and separate spa shower, finished in a modern, serene palette, and a large custom walk-in closet.
Upstairs are three family bedrooms, each with an ensuite bathroom and substantial closet space. Every bedroom is unique, one with a Juliet balcony, another with an alcove for study or yoga; but all are in keeping with the southern French style of the home, with generous windows, crown molding, and custom lighting.
Outside, the cobblestone drive leads through a port cochere with doors leading to the kitchen, and continues beyond to the rear of the house where there is a detached carriage house with a finished office on the second floor.
The terrace overlooks the flat, professionally landscaped lot with the perfect site for a pool. There is a partially finished daylight basement with exterior access, ready to be completed as a wine cellar, home gym or theatre.
Paces Lake is one of Atlanta’s premier luxury communities right in the heart of Vinings. just steps from the shopping and dining of Vinings and a short drive to Atlanta’s most distinguished private schools, Paces Lake feels like a world apart.
I will have the home open for your viewing pleasure on Tuesday, September 18th from 11-230 if you can stop by! Alternatively, Call me to set up a time to view this spectacular property in person. It truly must be seen to be appreciated. I’d love to answer any questions you may have!
