Chestnut Hall is a vast estate set on more than 18 manicured acres in Atlanta’s prestigious Buckhead and Sandy Springs neighborhoods. The property features a 17,000-square-foot mansion with seven bedrooms, eight full baths and three half-baths, and is offered fully furnished with museum-quality antiques, priceless paintings, valuable tapestries and rare antiquities collected from around the globe, some dating to the 4th century B.C.E. This is a rare opportunity to own a collector’s dream residence.
Grand iron gates open to expansive manicured grounds and formal gardens dotted with exquisite 18th and 19th century European statuary. A long private driveway leads to the majestic limestone and brick home, which is a tasteful blend of English Tudor and country French architecture.
Imposing doors imported from Paris reveal a spectacular foyer and art gallery with a magnificent carved plaster ceiling, inspired by the Braccio Nuovo at the Vatican Museum. The far end of the gallery opens to a 2,500-square-foot limestone terrace with imported Jerusalem stone floors that overlook sweeping views of the stately grounds.
The 2,400-square-foot master suite includes a bedroom, sitting room, his and her custom closets, and an elaborate bathroom featuring Herbeau fixtures, an onyx bath tub, custom designed waterjet marble floors and separate steam showers.
Additional spaces include a magnificent library, 16-seat dining room, 1,700-square-foot fitness center with commercial equipment, luxurious spa, children’s playroom and outdoor playground. A large Pebble Tec®-surfaced saline swimming pool and pool house are set in a picturesque area of the property. A separate one-level four-bedroom, three-bath home is ideal for guests, extended family or an estate manager.
