On The Market

Pinestream Road, Nw
Atlanta, Georgia

Pedigree: In 1923 local architects Neel Reid and Philip Shutze collaborated on this manor in the Buckhead district. Modeled after a 16th-century Italian villa, the gracefully proportioned neoclassical home is considered one of the city’s finest, especially for the foyer’s mural by noted artist Allyn Cox and the library’s unique inlaid-wood ceiling.

Property Values: Urban development has whittled the formerly 100-acre grounds down to just one and a half.

Talking Point: Neighbors refer to the house as the Pink Castle because of its distinctive stucco façade, which was at one time a rich shade of burnt sienna.
