Real estate developer Lee Najjar’s Atlanta mansion has been re-listed for $22,500,000, down from its original asking price of $25,000,000. That’s not much of a price drop, but it’s a start. The huge 20,000+ square foot mansion was built in 2008 and is located at 490 West Paces Ferry Northwest Road in Atlanta, GA. The home boasts the original 1920’s facade with a coral stone clad exterior.  It sits on over 2 acres of land and boasts 9 bedrooms, 11 full and 4 half bathrooms, 7 full kitchens, 16 fireplaces, formal living and dining rooms, gourmet kitchen with breakfast room, family room with vaulted ceilings, ballroom, home theater with concession room, hair/nail salon, wood paneled office with coffered ceiling, smoking room, recording studio, gym, wine cellar, expansive terraces and patios, numerous outdoor living spaces and a huge swimming pool.

    I didn’t make it all the way through the listing photos before my lunch began coming back up on me. The outside isn’t terrible. The inside is hideous.

    I could go on for paragraphs and paragraphs but there’s no point. If they get $22 million for this I’ll eat my iPhone.

    Anything above $15 million and they overpaid. Not a fan of the house, inside or out. Something about the white with yellow stone and terracotta roof that scream Vegas. Interior does have some elements I like, but overall it’s too overwhelming and comes off as tacky.

    I hate this home. I have seen many pictures of the home before Mr. Najjar made his “improvements”. It used to be a beautiful 1920’s old hollywood spanish style home. It was really a great, unique house. Unfortunately, it is now ruined by pretentious nouveau riche owners. I’m also not a fan of men who cheat on their wives with reality t.v. stars, so I would probably hate it just because of the owner.

      I hear you LOUD & CLEAR, Architect 121! I would’ve honestly LOVED to have seen the house before Najjar F’ED it up, totally. I can imagine that it was a truly beautiful Mediterannean before he destroyed it. And you’re ALL exactly right…..the house looks like a Rococco version of a WHORE HOUSE from 1970, after you ate waaaaaaay too much BAD Italian food, and were being terrorized by Liberace’s GHOST!

        I used to live in Atlanta, and I loved this home before. I found a before picture on the internet. Here is a link:

          Looked so much more dignified before. And those towering trees are no longer there, are they?

            I don’t think so, though because I no longer live in Atlanta, I haven’t been back down this street since before the renovation. But it definitely looks that way from the picture.

          That picture makes me sad. Seeing the before and after it seems the same as taking Audrey Hepburn and turning her into Divine.

    I respect the amount of detail work put into the house.
    That being said, like TN, there is no part of Georgia that I would spend $20+ million.
    I bet it sells for between $8 million to $12 million.

      Yes, this house is about 4 or 5 houses over from the Governor’s Mansion.

      Yes, it is actually close to the center of Buckhead. West Paces Ferry is a pretty exclusive street, in a pretty exclusive neighborhood. Only Tuxedo Park and MAYBE Peachtree Battle are more exclusive. The Georgia Governor’s Mansion is practically his neighbor, and there are many $12,000,000+ homes around his.

    Oh dear, what were they thinking? Was this kind of decorating ever considered as nice? The back of the house (the windows/doors and everything) has real potential though…

    I think this was the house used in the movie “Zombieland” where they find Bill Murphy and accidentally kill him in the home theatre. I knew it wasn’t L.A. when I saw all the tall piney trees and not a single palm.

    The home feels kind of empty. And the kitchen is very untasteful.

      100% agree. I feel like if someone was cooking something and accidentally looked up they would be instantly hypnotized and the meal would be on the floor.

        I agree. Almost all of the rooms have very odd ceilings. And a black tub?

    I feel this house would appeal to someone from the Middle East, or a hillbillie whore, like the one from the real housewives he had an affair with, or maybe a rap star.

        I was gonna’ say Iranian or Iraqi or Saudi, Architect, but I didn’t want to sound like a racist ass, but…….you’re right, there’s no denying it. Waaaaaaaaaaay too may people of that nationality think that that SH*T is actually beautiful…..NOT ALL, of course, but waaaaaaay too many.

          I didn’t mean to sound racist at all, but I remember an interview he did with an Atlanta real estate magazine a while back when he talked a lot about his Indian heritage.

            Guys, no way in hell I’m a racist. People from different cultures have different likes and dislikes. For example in Greenwich, a house has to be stone and clapboard. The style is refered as Colonial Hedgefund Manager. In Texas it’s Spanish influenced. Most houses in Florida have a look that is rather unique. All I ment to say was that house was sooooooooooo different as to have rather limited appeal. An appeal that was limited the people from a different hemisphere and people that want something so unique as to be noticed.

        Indian?
        Middle East touches?
        That makes no sense.
        You do know Indians are not from the Middle East, right?

          Calm down, don’t have a hissy fit. I did not know where he was from, nor do I care. But I do think that this house is a little far out for most peoples taste.

    For all the loosers that have left jealous and pointless coments about this house saying..

    ”The inside is hideous”
    ”I think it’s ridiculous!!”
    ”Was this kind of decorating ever considered as nice?”
    ”made me want to throw up”

    You are all very very sad and terribly jealous people with major problems, this is a spectacular house. Just because all you loosers live in shoe boxes and cannot afford a place like this you attack the house, but I bet given the opportunity you would all live there in a heart beat, but no one would have the guts to admit the truth!!!

      Well said I actually like the house. I live in Atlanta & seeing the house in person, I can honestly say it’s beautiful. Everyone has their own style & taste but this house is far from hideous (in my opinion).

    Lord have mercy… can’t anyone tell the difference between an Arab and an Indian? Najjar is NOT indian.. and YES both the Indians and the Arabs love both gold and vibrant colors.. It’s just the cultures. We all have some ethnicity to us. Personally, I loved the house. I thought it was beautiful. I am half arab and half irish. It’s WAY too big for my liking, but I like it. That’s just me though.
