So what if the odds of winning 1.5 billion dollars were 1 in 292 million? It was still fun to think about all of the things you would do with all of those dollars (post-tax, of course). Other than paying off debt, most people I talked to mentioned some sort of real estate endeavor as their first move. A private tropical island here, a sprawling penthouse in Manhattan there, the $200 million dollar Playboy Mansion that is now for sale (and you’d still have enough money leftover for the amount of cleaning supplies that place would need). We’ve all imagined these luxuries, right?
Did you stop to think about what mega monstrosities you could purchase in your own backyard? The three priciest residential properties in Atlanta/metro Atlanta lie in the 30327 Zip Code, which happens to be the most expensive zip code in all of Georgia.
Topping the list at a whopping $48,000,000 is a quaint 7 bedroom, 8 bathroom (plus 3 half bathrooms) European estate off of Riverview Road. Spanning across 18.6 acres and built of limestone and brick, you will find perfectly manicured lawns, gates galore, a tennis court, a guest house, home gym, pretty much anything you can imagine so you would never have to leave your house. Ever. The home is closing in on 2 years on the market. As you can probably imagine, homes like these don’t just fly off the market.
Not far behind at #2 is, well, actually three houses on one property. For a cool $44,500,000 these West Paces Ferry Road stunners on 23 acres can be yours! Amenities include soccer field, lighted tennis court, field house, putting green, Olympic park fountain, garage built for a classic car collection, gazebo, aviary and each home has its own pool. Pictured in the listing are two swans and a peacock. No note of those being part of the sale, but everything is negotiable, right?
If homes in the $40,000,000 range are a little bit out of your budget then #3 might just be the perfect one for you. The $25,000,000 French Provincial home located on Paces Ferry boasts 7 bedrooms, 9 full bathrooms and 5 half bathrooms. Nestled on 17 acres on the Chattahoochee River this home includes an infinity edge pool, tennis court, full gym, spa, home theater, hobby house, underground ballroom WITH a catering kitchen (how cool is that?!), many different gardens, security guard stand, and the list goes on. Oh, how could I forget to mention? This is the Tyler Perry estate! Madea herself. It really is truly breathtaking (in pictures, at least).
Maybe you didn’t win the Powerball, but maybe you still want to buy one of these incredible homes. The Peters Company can help you with that! Give us a call at 404-419-3619 today!
