Full of character and charm, this classical Southern style home that was originally built in 1929 for legendary Atlanta-born golfer, Bobby Jones, has just hit the Buckhead market. Situated on over 1.6 acres in Tuxedo Park, one of Buckhead’s most prestigious neighborhoods, this 6-bedroom, 5 and 2 half bath estate exudes old world appeal throughout every room of the house.
Said to have been gifted to Bobby Jones from the City of Atlanta after his famous grand slam in 1930 and later becoming the home of a former Georgia governor, the Atlanta heritage this home holds is beyond question.
From the exterior, the classical Southern style influence in the home’s architecture is immediately apparent, from its towering columns to its expansive and beautifully landscaped outdoor spaces. Nestled among the trees and boasting a lengthy roundabout driveway, a pool with its own poolside cabana and a vast grand courtyard in the back, this home’s exterior is just as stunning as the interior.
The elegant living room, spacious dining area overlooking the pool, and charming breakfast room provide no shortage of space to entertain friends and family with ease. Stepping into the luxurious library, featuring a double-sided fireplace and wood-paneled walls, is like stepping back in time. It was in this room that Bobby Jones and Cliff Roberts developed the concept of the Masters Golf Tournament.
The lower level holds the primary suite bedroom and has its own private entrance while the upper-level features 5 other bedrooms, all with expansive windows and heightened ceilings. With ample indoor living space, plenty of outdoor areas to relax in, and a rich history dating back to the 1920’s, this newly listed Buckhead estate is the perfect place to call home.
