House of the Day: Classic Mansion Is a Walk in the Park

You can keep all the shiny white condos and McMansions sweeping Atlanta, because this regal yet classic property embodies everything that we love about real estate.

Set on over 10 acres and nestled amongst a forest of trees in Tuxedo Park, the $14.9 million 'Rhododendrun Hall' in Atlanta, Ga., is the furthest you could possibly get from your standard contemporary. Without sacrificing luxury (don't worry, city rats: you still get state-of-the art amenities -- an in-home gym, a theater and a swimming pool) this unique estate channels Old World elegance, from antique hardwood detailing, to soaring cathedral ceilings and wood-burning fireplaces. We love the rich, bold colors throughout. See for yourself.

It's no surprise that this 11-bedroom, 10-bathroom home is considered one of the "finest estates ever available" in Atlanta. One look at all that luscious green grass and those gorgeously leafy trees and we were done for ... or maybe it's just because we're from New York.

Mark Bhaggan from Sotheby's International Realty has the listing.
