Featured Home: Knollwood – Renowned and Elegant Buckhead Estate (Wes Vawter)

May 14, 2010

3351 Woodhaven Road

 

A true Southern gem is hidden down a maple lined drive in the middle of Buckhead! Situated in TuxedoPark, Atlanta’s finest neighborhood, where magnificent mansions have been maintained and restored meticulously to keep intact much of Atlanta’s fine history. Knollwood was designed by Atlanta’s famed architect Phillip Shutze for the Kiser family in 1929. Originally you could see Knollwood from West Paces Ferry but now it is secluded down a private drive with its fountain visible from the street. It is a very impressive entrance to this private estate.

Living room

The house is built in the English Georgian style and sits perfectly atop a “knoll” allowing for maximum light and privacy from all directions. Although right in the middle of busy Buckhead, the property seems like an elegant home in the country. There is a remarkable feeling about this property. Knollwood has been selected many times to host some of Atlanta’s most prestigious fundraisers. This property is well known and well loved by generations of Atlantans.

 

Kitchen

The distinctive limestone portico and fountain set the formal exterior entry. The interior rooms are grand and elegant. High ceilings, thick plaster walls, elaborate moldings and perfectly portioned rooms make this house formal and friendly at the same time. The sense of proportion sets this house apart from all others. Philip Shutze was brilliant at this as we can see in the Swan House at the AtlantaHistoryCenter. The Swan House was built around the same time as Knollwood and in fact the original owners the Inman’s and the Kiser’s were friends.

Sunroom

The current owners of Knollwood have lovingly maintained as many of the historical details as possible, while updating the house to a modern family’s needs. Working with Norman Askins they have created a fantastic modern kitchen and keeping room with Subzero, Viking and Bosch appliances. The gorgeous living room and magnificent dining room have original plaster moldings and fireplace surrounds. The wood paneled library has a plaster cove ceiling. Off the kitchen is the butler’s pantry with details such as servants buzzers and plate warmers from the 1930’s. Shutters throughout the house still have the cranks to close out the Atlanta heat, although the house now has 7 air conditioning/heat zones. There is even an interior fire hose that has never been used but adds to the historical interest.

Mrs. Kiser was president of the American Garden Club and Mr. Shutze designed a flower arranging room for her on the lower level. Some of her original garden sites and structures are still intact on the property. Knollwood sits on almost three acres of mature hardwoods with gorgeous gardens, fruit trees, boxwoods and sloping lawns. There is a pool, pool house and a gazebo for outside living. Playroom and two beds/two baths with lots of living space occupy the third floor. On the second floor there are 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. All have high ceilings, large windows, gorgeous floors and can be connected for creative use of space. There are two wood burning fireplaces on the second floor. The main floor is spectacular and entertaining can be on a grand scale or very simple. There is a sunroom, wood paneled library, large entry foyer, morning room, butler’s pantry and the kitchen/keeping room on main floor as well. There are three fireplaces on the main floor and two powder rooms. There is a lower level with laundry, workout room and full bath; as well as a cellar below that for the mechanicals.

This is truly a unique and very special property. Elaborate and subtle details will surprise you around every turn. The house and its rich history cannot be duplicated. This is a rare and wonderful opportunity to purchase one of Atlanta’s finest homes.

Offered at $4,900,000

Streets of Buckhead construction remains idle — until early 2010

September 23, 2009

Submitted by Wes Vawter, REALTOR®

The restart of construction at the Streets of Buckhead mixed-use development is once again being delayed—now until early next year, according to developer Ben Carter.

Streets of BuckheadSo, although Carter had said activity would begin anew this month, motorists passing by the site on Peachtree Road, between East Paces Ferry and Pharr roads, can expect for at least four more months to see cranes standing still amid the Buckhead skyline and over gaping holes in the landscape and a partially completed parking deck.

Carter, who is no stranger to developing major shopping centers, says he doesn’t want to proceed with construction until he has more leases in hand and the economy is stronger, which he says is better for those tenants for which he has signed leases.

The project, dubbed the Rodeo Drive of the South, will feature top-end fashion boutiques and restaurants, such as Van Cleef & Arpels, Hermes, Oscar de la Renta and others, was originally scheduled to open this November. It now looks like Phase I will not open until January of 2011.
