For centuries, Georgian architecture has stood the test of time as one of the most revered and enduring residential styles. Originating in 18th-century Britain during the reigns of the first four King Georges (hence its name), Georgian design emerged as a graceful departure from the extravagance of the Baroque style. Focusing on balance, proportion and symmetry, the style combines grandeur and elegance through clean lines and harmonious composition.
This style quickly crossed the Atlantic to the American colonies, rapidly becoming the aesthetic of choice for the country’s early leaders and elites. From Independence Hall to Virginia’s sprawling plantations, colonists embraced the prestige of symmetrical facades, stately columns, and meticulous proportions.
Today, Georgian’s balanced layouts, dramatic pillars, and focus on proportions seamlessly blend historic roots with contemporary versatility. Timeless on the exterior yet modernized within, Georgian homes offer spacious, light-filled interiors easily adapted to suit today’s lifestyles.
While much of the Georgian architecture across Georgia graces the coastlines and Savannah’s historic streets, a few hidden gems can be found in the city of Atlanta, like this opulent, on-the-market home located in the heart of Buckhead. Situated on a cul-de-sac in the exclusive gated community of West Paces Park, this newly listed four-bedroom estate is a prime example of Georgian-style architecture’s enduring allure.
The exterior’s stone structure, slate roof with dental molding, and front courtyard offer a glimpse into the luxuriousness of the home’s interior.
Inside, this Georgian gem spans three finished levels, boasting impressive features at every turn. Soaring 10-foot ceilings on all levels complement the marble entry hall, and rich hardwoods can be found throughout the home. The living and dining rooms are perfect for entertaining, while the office, complete with built-ins and a fireplace, provides an ideal space for a remote work lifestyle.
The heart of this home lies in its well-appointed features. The kitchen is a chef’s dream, boasting modern amenities and a spacious design. A cozy fireplace in the keeping room adds warmth, while the butler’s pantry allows for ample storage and kitchen space.
This home offers four large bedrooms, each with ensuite baths, offering both comfort and privacy. The primary suite is a true sanctuary, featuring a custom closet and a generously sized bath for unwinding after a long day. The finished terrace level adds even more versatility to the home, offering flex spaces that can serve as an additional sleeping area or entertainment space. The terrace level is completed by a state-of-the-art home theater, a wine cellar, and a fully equipped home gym.
The home’s backyard is equally inviting, featuring a saltwater pool, a beautifully landscaped yard and flower gardens, and outdoor entertaining areas that make the expansive 1.74-acre lot the perfect place to call home.
