Top 8 Most Expensive Buckhead Home Sales of 2017

2017 was a banner year for real estate in Buckhead. Many high-end homes over $5 million that had been on the market through the real estate recession sold. With these homes cleared out of the market, luxury home sales in Buckhead are now are now on better footing due to lower inventory.

Even though it was a great year overall, 2017 sales did not surpass the top two sales of 2016, which included Tyler Perry’s $17.5 million home and my sale of Villa Juanita for $7.2 million.

Below I have compiled a list of the top 8 most expensive home sales in Buckhead during 2017. Enjoy the birds-eye view and my comments on each.

421 Blackland Road in the Tuxedo Park neighborhood sold for $7,150,000 in February 2017. That started the year off right for the real estate market in Buckhead, and the sale managed to hold the title as the highest of 2017. Surprisingly, the new owner decided to relist the home for $10.5 million after owning it for just 50 weeks, which could make it a top sale for 2018.
435 King Road, also in the Tuxedo Park neighborhood, traded for $6.4 million in March and was immediately renovated and expanded by the new owner. It is a private resort with indoor and outdoor pools, an indoor basketball court, and many other outstanding features.
2022 West Paces Ferry is a stately 1930’s home at the end of West Paces Ferry Road in the Paces Neighborhood. Its six acres borders the Chattahoochee River. Its six acres borders the Chattahoochee River. While the home might lack flash, it more than makes up for it with good old charm and snagged a $6 million sale.
The home at 1150 West Garmon Road, the 2015 Holiday Showhouse, combines an old-world exterior with a modern interior. The home is located just outside the official Buckhead boundaries in the Sandy Springs ITP neighborhood. It closed for $5,275,822 and the new owner immediately began building an addition and improving the lot.
3496 Knollwood Drive, located just around the corner from the Governor’s Mansion, never did hit the MLS but managed to sell for $5,000,000 in an off-market sale. The 1945 home recently underwent an extensive renovation that transformed it into an attractive Cape Dutch style.
391 Argonne Drive in the Arden/Habersham neighborhood was just two years old when it sold in October for $4,800,000. This photo was taken when construction was still underway.
This 1926 Georgian home designed by Neel Reid sits on a beautiful 2-acre lot surrounded by mature oaks. 2922 Andrews Drive is in the beautiful Peachtree Heights West neighborhood and closed for $4,710,000 in November.
With over 18,000 feet of living space, this home is filled with amenities that range from a home hair salon to a lavish theater. 1001 West Paces Ferry Road in the Kingswood neighborhood closed at $4,695,000. You may view the property video and photos at
