    Definitely a Handyman’s special LOL, with that in mind I doubt seriously they can get that 2.65 million.

    16,000 sq ft would probably take another $2 million to make it livable. Seems very generic though. S. Florida has its faux-Mediterranean, and Georgia has this style (which I’m blanking on right now).

      Chateauesque? Tudor? (Seems they don’t require exposed exterior beams.) European?

        All real estate agents claim exterior beam homes to be Tudor when it is NOT TRUE. That style is really Elizabethan Half-Timber. (I took Architectural Styles as part of Interior Design before I got my Real Estate license).

        As others have stated, the home above is Tudor (which you can usually define by long, narrow chimneys & chimney pots – besides the building material).

        Someone said this before on this group, if you really want to correctly identify architectural styles, you must look at a lot of homes. It’s better to see them on an architectural website, because r.e. agents can be wrong! (and often are). Read a lot – if you don’t have books, Wikipedia is an invaluable source for all kinds of information. The other day I was curious to see if I could find out the order in which Star Trek shows followed TNG. There was a main page with everything you’d want to know & a page on each additional series and movie. Usually I’d use The Internet Movie Database for that sort of thing, but didn’t need to. 🙂

      It’s Tudor Revival, or Mock Tudor if you prefer.

    I am really liking this home although the exterior is a little cold… I agree that it is priced to high, but I think that it could easily be made livable.

    It’s a nice enough house but doesn’t seem like anything special. When it’s finished it looks like some of the spaces could be really nice. The price seems very high for an unfinished house. I’m guessing someone could make a pretty good deal with the bank and get it for much less.

    I don’t think any sane person would take the risk of taking on a project like this unless they know exactly what they’re doing. Apparently the finishing costs of a house are as high as the building costs; the last 10% cost as much as the first 90% or something like that

    I drive by here almost everyday as i live in Buckhead. It is truely a beautiful home and fits as english tudor style mansion guys. This home was once at $15 million and the bank’s loan fell through and the builder had to let it go.

    One reason I wouldn’t mind living in ATL is because they have big beautiful affordable homes. I even see homes that are finished that are this cheap and very beautiful.

    Tony Reaves was the original builder for this home. He is an outstanding builder with a good reputation in the one to five million range. He was basicaly acting as a GC for an investor on this “spec” home that was started in 2007. Believe it or not 2.6 mil would be a fair price for this home. There is a couple of hundred thou in the roof and gutters alone. It is true ,especially on these custome homes that the last 20 percent of the home costs as much or more than the first 80 percent. With our economy tanking in 2008 the investors slowed progress and eventually stopped all together earlier this year due to “lack of intrest”. They finally decided to let the bank have within the last month. JD

    The house is absoultely gorgeous. I walked thru it this past weekend. It still has a lot of work to be done. The rooms are Baronial in size and Master bdrm. is stunning.

    At $2.650m that is a steel of a deal.
