The home at 205 West Paces Ferry Road, listed for $4.65 million, has three reasons why some folks may want to check it out.
1. It’s on this Sunday’s Buckhead in Bloom event, the Atlanta Preservation Center’s annual tour of homes. And it’s an appropriate spot, with the home on 2 acres and featuring a courtyard, garden, gazebo with granite countertops, an outdoor fireplace, and a saltwater pool and Jacuzzi. You can purchase tickets in advance at the Cathedral of St. Philip Book Store, Boxwoods Gardens and Gifts and The Swan Coach House, on at the home on the day of the tour (tickets are $40 for non-APC members, $30 for members).
2. It’s Philip Trammell Shutze original, built in 1936 and renovated and expanded to about 10,000 square feet four years ago by Harrison Design Associates. The front of the home was designed in the English Regency style; the back is the American Federal style.
3. It’s a bank-owned property, joining others of all price ranges in foreclosure on the market in Atlanta.
The seven-bedroom, 7 ½-bath home, known as The Thornton-Jones House, is listed by Russell A. Gray with Harry Norman, Realtors. There’s ample space for extras like a gym, steam, sauna and a massage room, which has one of the home’s eight fireplaces.
Don’t exert yourself too much this Sunday, though, and enjoy visiting a landmark that’s on the market.
