A Certified Historic Landmark Goes on the Market for $3,499,995

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this iconic neoclassical revival residence, known as Spotswood Hall, could be yours for $3,499,995.


The facade’s eye-catching pedimented portico boasting a quartet of massive columns offers a clue to this historic home’s architectural pedigree. Originally designed by A. Ten Eyck Brown in 1913, the stately mansion was remodeled by Philip Trammell Shutze 20 years later and, most recently, expanded by Norman Askins. Nestled on 2-plus acres at 555 Argonne Drive NW in Buckhead, the five-bedroom home provides 7,000-plus square feet of opulent living space on two levels highlighted by a grand staircase, a chef’s kitchen, a master retreat sporting dual baths and closets, an entry rotunda with an Asian-inspired mural by artist Athos Menaboni and even a putting green ideal for the avid golfer. “The charm and detail throughout Spotswood Hall is impossible to re-create,” says listing agent Kyle Baumann of Beacham & Co. Realtors. “The architectural significance means the next steward of this property will be owning a piece of history.”
