West Paces Ferry Road is unarguably Atlanta’s most prestigious street. Tourists don’t visit the city without taking a drive under its storybook canopy of grandfather trees to feast their eyes on the fabulous houses that line the world famous road. The Governor’s mansion, currently home to the Georgia Governor Nathan Deal and his wife Sandra, is just one of the many works of architectural art found on this gorgeous street. Currently, Beacham & Company has three listings on this classic street. As does every home on West Paces, each listings has a unique personality and story behind home that sets the house apart.
1955 West Paces Ferry Road redefines the phrase “one of a kind.” Surrounded by about 15 acres of nature, you’d never know this 3.5 acre estate was located at a premiere address in the heart of Buckhead. The current homeowners enlisted the help of Frederic Schwartz, a world renowned architect known for his ability to seamlessly blend art and architecture. With this particular project, the team had three objectives. To quote the homeowner, their goals were, “first, to design a floor plan that included no wasted space, would operate at peak efficiency and which would completely complement the wide ranging spatial needs of our growing and active family. Second, to build a unique living environment that takes full advantage of the unsurpassed beauty of one of the most dramatic and private properties in Georgia. Third, to construct a visually appealing home that fits our more modern tastes while complementing the surrounding, more traditional neighborhood.” The house’s design is rooted in classic modern architecture. Windows frame the backside of the house illuminating the inside with natural light and giving onlookers a stunning view of the home’s natural surroundings. In the evening, accent lighting brings the home alive, creating a gorgeous backdrop for nighttime entertainment or family living. The property’s professional landscaping features a resort-style heated pool that whisks sunbathers out of town without ever having to leave the backyard. Other highlights include a commercial generator, wine cellar, steam and sauna and fitness room.
