take a tour, or two, or three

looking at homes on the market in the atlanta area is one of my favorite things to do in my free time.  it’s almost an obsession.  i also love looking at the homes that are way…i mean WAY, out of my price range just for kicks.

here are a few that i came across recently.  listed at $4,995,000, the first house on our tour is only slightly out of my price range.  (YEAH RIGHT!)  this belgium-style 6 bed, 7.5 bath sits in a part of town that we atlantans like to call the mcmansion side of town.  {disclaimer: just so you know this will be the least expensive home featured on the tour today}.

the dining room in this home is quite stunning and as you know from this post i’m a sucker for horse art.

i’m so glad that whoever designed this house stuck to the art of simplicity.  this all neutral family room is beautiful.

isn’t this a cozy little nook.

i’m assuming this is the master bedroom since it was the only bedroom shown on the listing.  look how high the cathedral ceilings is.

care to take a swim…well take it in your back yard and then relax in the pool house.

our next estate tour is of a home located close to buckhead.  this 7 bed, 8 bath home is listed at $6,300,000.  at first glance you may think that it doesn’t look too much like a mansion.

if you stay on the tour long enough you will see it turn into one though.

as you walk through the entryway the grandness of this house starts to come to life.

there weren’t any bedrooms pictures posted with this listing.  sorry.

onto our final house on the tour.  i just put this one on the tour for kicks.  i think this is quite possibly the most expensive home listed right now in the atlanta area.  hope you’re sitting down for this one.  this estate is listed for $45,000,000.  yes, that is the correct amount of zeros.  i might as well be taking you on a tour of the biltmore estate.

here are a few exterior shots.

this house is not at all my style but i’m in awe of the massiveness of it.
