Custom designed with no detail spared, this Buckhead estate set on a private hilltop feels worlds away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
“The floor plan flows beautifully for both daily living as well as for entertaining,” says listing agent Shanna Smith. “It is just as comfortable with a small, intimate group as it is with a large group.”
With its secluded, gated setting on 1 ½ acres and list of sumptuous features worthy of a five-star resort, this Howell Mill Road stunner is a retreat in every sense of the word. Conceptualized by power trio Keith Summerour of Summerour Architects, Rick Fierer of Bildon Construction and Barbara Westbrook of Westbrook Interiors, the 10,195-square-foot home, which was built in 2010, is unique in that its center point is set on a rotunda with a dramatic circular staircase leading to all levels and a rooftop cupola that floods the spacious interior with natural light. Additional architectural details including a Vermont slate roof, extensive stonework, soaring steel windows, exposed vintage beams, heart pine floors and custom ironwork are exquisite, with lush landscaping by Jeremy Smearman of Planters further elevating the grand property. Designed for entertaining, the home boasts a chef’s kitchen equipped with Gaggenau ovens, a Wolf range and Sub-Zero refrigeration; a loggia offering outdoor living space and an outdoor kitchen; a saltwater heated pool and spa; a state-of-the-art fitness room with steam shower; and a spectacular 5,000-bottle-plus-capacity wine cellar that was inspired by the wine cellar at Blackberry Farm—a sweet escape, indeed. 2640 Howell Mill Road, $6.8 million, Shanna Smith, Dorsey Alston Realtors, 404.229.7958, dorseyalston.com
