Atlanta’s elite real estate market has had an exciting and unique opportunity arise of late: a modern mansion for sale in the upscale Midtown area that offers both contemporary extravagances as well as a uniquely warm southern charm. Located at 742 Courtenay Court and straddling not one but two lots, this five story, 7,800 square foot southern mansion is being offered to the public at absolute auction, selling to the highest bidder on May 8th, 2014 by Supreme Auctions in partnership with Pam Yarbrough of Harry Norman Realtors (a Christie’s International Real Estate affiliate).
Busy executives in the greater Atlanta metro area can join their cohorts from Coca Cola, Home Depot, Delta Airlines, AT&T and many other Fortune 500 companies in this popular downtown neighborhood that offers everything southern city dwellers expect: a quiet and warm community with proximity to work (downtown is a mere 15 minutes away) and easy access to culture and recreation. Interstates 75 and 85 are nearby, Piedmont Park is less than a half-mile walk or bike-ride away, Emory University and Medical Center is close, and the airport is within a short 20-minute drive. No need to be concerned with finding a parking space either, as this home sits in one of Atlanta’s most walkable communities; you can walk to Amsterdam Walk and Virginia Highlands for shopping at a multitude of boutiques or have a relaxing meal out at a wide selection of restaurants. Cultural hotspots and sports facilities are also within a few minutes’ drive.
Built in the “Streamline Moderne” style of the 1920s by Parker Construction and designed by world renowned architect John Busby (who is also well known for the design of the Atlanta Civic Center and Carter Center), this modern Atlanta mansion for sale has 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and features countless unique touches including marble floors, museum grade oak hardwood floors, custom maple cabinetry, interior emergency lights, motorized shades, stainless steel railings on the exterior, smart house controls for security, subzero wine storage with a 200 bottle capacity, and so much more. In fact, the current owners spent upwards of $5 million creating the perfect southern mansion that balances a clean, futuristic style with warm and cozy accents.
From its three-story entry foyer and five-story curtain wall enclosing a wood-and-steel spiral staircase to its natural materials, inviting nooks and built-in storage in each and every closet, the open floor plan stretches across four main floors, all of which are easily accessed via a commercial-grade elevator or stairwells with custom steel railings. The chef in the family will love its commercial-grade kitchen with granite countertops, Wolf commercial gas stovetop, two electric ovens, side-by-side Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer, double warming drawers, two separate prep areas with oversized sinks, and twin Miele dishwashers. The master suite is also a luxury retreat in its own right, with radiant heating under the bath’s marble floors, his-and-her vanities, a two-person shower with double heads, and even a Jacuzzi tub. This modern mansion for sale even features a mother-in-law apartment/nanny annex on the terrace level. Venture outside to discover balconies on the terrace and rooftop as well as a sparkling lap pool with cascading sauna, hot tub, and manicured lawn.
Enjoy the conveniences of living close to work with the ability to retreat to a luxurious modern relaxing home with ample room to entertain inside and out.
