WWII-Era Manse in Dire Need of a Decorator Holds Out for $3M

After spending nearly a year on the market in search of $2,995,000, Atlanta, Ga.'s so-called 'European Stunner' of a mansion might be due for a price cut, or maybe a little TLC from an interior designer. Though the loud shade of teal covering the kitchen, the shutters, and the French doors is certainly "stunning"—no questions there—but when paired with the verging-on-gaudy furniture choices, it gives the place a bit of a cramped, loony feel, and with over 9,000 square feet crammed onto 1.3 acres, it can't really afford to get any tighter. To be sure, this circa 1940 five-bedroom has a bunch of things worth keeping; hardwood floors, "many unique chandeliers," Sherle Wagner sinks, a "garden room," a hedge-lined pool, a two-bedroom carriage house. But spending season after season on the market without changing up one's approach might be the definition of real estate insanity. For now, check out the decorative craziness on the inside, including the mosaic-covered steps in the entryway and one tiny, resplendently pink sitting room.
