Location: Atlanta, Georgia
The Skinny: The listing proclaims this home a "European masterpiece," though the impressive list of included luxury amenities speaks more directly an American who wants to be able to golf, swim laps, watch movies in a cinema, and play billiards with his bros, all without leaving the house. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Stripped down, semi-ascetic living has its place, but if life were all Swedish furniture and Italian cabinetry, all the time, what an aesthetically-pleasing drag that would be. As amenity-filled as it is, the $10M manse is still designed to be durable because, as an Architectural Digest article on the house points out, the owners are a sprawling family with three kids, two English mastiffs, and a Chihuahua. Reclaimed wood beams, oak paneling, and fieldstone exterior walls are just a few of the building materials used to protect the place from marauding canines and grubby-handed children wielding crayons.
