A rare and expansive 11.7-acre property in the heart of Buckhead is set to come to market, marking its first availability in a century. Located at 350 West Wesley Road and priced at $8.8 million, this property is one of the largest parcels to become available in Buckhead in recent years. Situated just a few blocks west of Peachtree Road, this picturesque, hilltop property has been home to five generations of a prominent local family.

The property, positioned on the north side of Haynes Manor, offers walkability to various local attractions, including the farmers market, Bobby Jones Golf Course, and the Atlanta Beltline. The home on the property was built in 1912 and has been owned by the same family since 1927.

Elizabeth Ramsey, whose grandfather purchased what was formerly 100 Wesley Avenue 97 years ago, highlighted the property’s unique attributes. “The property is not only exceptional for its size and location but also for the peace and serenity it delivers. There’s so much greenspace there,” Ramsey said, noting that the vantage point “up on the hill” adds to its unique standing in the area.

Ramsey reminisced about the property’s charm, recalling how her grandparents had a stable on the property and would ride horses to what is now Lenox Square and the Buckhead Theater. She recalled how the home and surrounding land has been a source of joy for the family for five generations. “It is now time to let it go, and we are hopeful that the families who build their home on this land will feel the same sense of connection that we have for so long,” she added.

The family has enlisted Ben Hirsh of Hirsh Real Estate to market the property. “The expansive parcel presents various opportunities, including an expansive country estate, a multi-home family compound, or a cul-de-sac development,” Hirsh explained. The property is zoned R3, allowing for lot sizes of less than half an acre. “This is likely the last opportunity to acquire a parcel of this size in the historic core of old Buckhead,” noted Hirsh.
