A luxurious English Tudor-style mansion in Atlanta’s affluent suburb of Sandy Springs has hit the market for just under $47 million. The sprawling estate, known as “Chestnut Hall,” offers opulent living spaces, extensive grounds, and a wealth of high-end amenities. Should it sell for anywhere near this price, it would set a new record for the most expensive residential real estate transaction in the Atlanta metro area.
The property was originally purchased by local businessman J.K. MacDonald in 1987 for $3.7 million. MacDonald, the founder of Media Marketing Services, undertook an extensive renovation and expansion of the premises in the mid-1990s. The resulting limestone and brick mansion features seven bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, and nearly 18,000 square feet of living space.
One of the standout features of Chestnut Hall is the grand entrance gallery, adorned with a French gilt bronze chandelier and a carved plaster ceiling inspired by Rome’s Vatican Museums. The mansion also boasts a formal dining room with velvet upholstered walls, a gourmet kitchen with top-tier appliances, and a 2,400-square-foot master retreat complete with a luxurious onyx vessel tub and a spacious closet for over 200 pairs of shoes.
The extensive grounds of the estate are adorned with antique statuary, Chestnut oak trees, and meticulously maintained gardens. Outdoor amenities include a saltwater swimming pool, a basketball court, a baseball setup, and various recreational spaces.
The listing for Chestnut Hall includes one year of estate-management services, adding extra value for potential buyers.
