Built on the cusp of the Depression by the president of Georgia Power Company, this stone estate still reflects the craftsmanship and attention to detail of a rich man's "Roaring '20s" home. Located in Atlanta's storied Buckhead neighborhood, the house has been restored and updated by the current owners, who added a Viking grill, revamped the kitchen to include a magnificent La Cornue range, and filled the house with a dazzling array of antique furniture. The impeccably landscaped grounds include a guest house, boxwood gardens, a pool with stone patio, and four garages. Now on the hunt for its next industrialist owner, the mansion is listed for $7,900,000.
