This landmark Buckhead home, known as “The Villa,” was built in 1930 in the classic Mediterranean Revival style. Construction consists primarily of stucco over block walls, with wrought iron highlights and a red barrel tile roof. A comprehensive renovation under the guidance of renowned Atlanta architectural designer, William T. Baker was completed in 1995, at which time a separate two-car garage was also built. A second renovation of the kitchen and lower level was completed in 2017. All of the modifications, including the generous large-paned French doors, floor-to-ceiling and traditional casement windows, evoke a strong sense of the past and respect the appeal of the original home. The signature rooms on the main floor are the dramatic living and dining rooms, featuring vaulted ceilings bridged with beams suspended on original ironwork supports, an historically inspired limestone fireplace, and tall windows allowing light to pour in. The state-of-the-art eat-in kitchen combines storage and function with a professional chef’s attention to detail, featuring Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances. There is also a fireside family room on the main floor as well as a guest’s powder room and an additional half bath off of the laundry room. Upstairs are the owner’s suite with a sitting room, a luxurious private bath and walk-in closet, plus two additional charming ensuite bedrooms. The terrace level hosts a wine cellar and guest quarters where a secondary living room (playroom), bedroom and full bath allow guests to enjoy their private area. The beautifully landscaped one acre property includes numerous patios and gardens, a cascading fountain, and a pool and pool house in the back yard. Throughout the property you will find original statuary and decorative iron gates which epitomize the home’s Tuscan roots and establish The Villa as one of Buckhead’s predominant Mediterranean Revival gems located in one of Atlanta’s most charming neighborhoods.
