It is an iconic home at the corner of Davis Drive and Northside Drive. From this vantage point passing motorists catch a glimpse of “Round Hill”, home of the late Charlie Loudermilk. A front lawn longer than an NFL field is lined by an avenue of trees on either side, framing a stately limestone facade and a life-size statue of a Buck. Like the man for whom this sprawling estate was built, it is larger than life.
Situated on a serene 14+ acres at 825 Davis Drive, it is the largest property available in the Buckhead area and is being offered for sale for the first time ever by Buckhead Realtor, Ben Hirsh. “It is a real honor to be chosen to represent such an amazing property,” said Hirsh. “I had the privilege of knowing Charlie and spending time with him here at his home. He loved this place dearly, and I look forward to finding the next owner who will make it their home.”
The home was designed by William T. Baker for Loudermilk with significant influence from Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello in Virginia, at twice the scale. “The scale and quality of construction of this home is extraordinary,” said Baker. “The quality and quantity of hand-carved limestone, the slate roof from Vermont, and wood-mould bricks would be very hard to replicate today. Even if you could, it would cost well over $1000 per foot to build.”
The 15,000 square foot home was constructed by Jerry Bonnor and completed in 1999. The grounds include 14+ usable acres. Paths winding through the wooded property connect various improvements which include a fishing pond, waterfall, greenhouse, garden beds, an old log cabin that was once a hunting lodge, and a barn.”This is an heirloom-quality property,” added Hirsh. “A rare opportunity that you have only one shot at.” For more photos and information, contact Ben Hirsh and click here.
