Atlanta's Best Historical Gem

Wendy Bowman | May 21, 2019 | Home & Real Estate

Here’s a peek inside this historical Buckhead home, where a bar from the SS Normandie sits adjacent to a spacious patio overlooking the grounds.

It’s rare enough to find an art deco-style home in Atlanta designed by the famed Philip Trammell Shutze. But when that said 1937 property has undergone an eye-popping revamp by global craftsmen with the renowned architect in mind, it’s a double win. The result? Pleasant Hill—set atop a 4 ½-acre knoll at 3655 W. Paces Ferry Road—where 99 percent of the original details remain intact sans an updated kitchen sporting Carrara marble countertops and a chef-designed La Cornue range. Among the highlights of the 7,000-square-foot abode, now on the market for $8.99 million: a quartet of custom Italian Murano glass chandeliers; a wine cellar with tasting area; and a top-floor entertaining space that opens via curved French doors to a rooftop deck and showcases a one-of-a-kind bar from the SS Normandie cruise ship.
