House Envy: Living the high life—Mandarin Oriental’s penthouse is Atlanta’s priciest

The luxurious unit comes with all the amenities of a five-star hotel

Set high atop Buckhead’s five-star Mandarin Oriental hotel is the largest high-rise condominium home in Atlanta, a two-story unfinished unit that’s part of the final phase of The Residences at Mandarin Oriental. The penthouse, which is on the market, can be custom designed; or the buyer can use the floorplan from architect Robert Tretsch, director of Harrison Design’s Modern Studio, who was enlisted to create a design for the 10,000-square-foot space.

Tretsch’s floorplan reflects the luxury lifestyle of its prospective owners and includes a library, music room, fitness room, gourmet kitchen, keeping room, catering kitchen, and two balconies. He envisions a staff bedroom on the first floor and three guest rooms and a master bedroom upstairs, as well as upper and lower lounges. The two levels will be connected by a sweeping curvilinear staircase.

The master bedroom will feature two large closets, and the master bath will have an enormous shower with two shower heads. The spa, which will incorporate a sauna, steam bath, and soaking tub, will have floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the mountains of North Georgia. In fact, almost every room will come with a breathtaking view.

“This world-class home represents life at the top and is one of the most unique residences in Atlanta,” says Karen Rodriguez, listing agent for the property. “It also comes with all the personal services associated with a high-end, five-star hotel.”

Indeed, this prestigious address will offer an array of amenities, including a 24-hour concierge, a valet, housekeeping service, personal drivers, personal shoppers, and round-the-clock room service. The homeowners can dine at the Mandarin Oriental’s gourmet restaurant or have drinks in the lounge. They also will have access to The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, which includes a fitness center, yoga studio, steam room, saunas, and a climate-controlled swimming pool.

State-of-the-art security includes keyless fingerprint entry as well as a private parking garage and private elevators. And, for the busy executive, the hotel offers boardrooms and other event spaces for hosting meetings and private dinners.

This Buckhead penthouse is on the market for $7,000,000. For more information, contact Karen Rodriguez of GROUP KORA/Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Georgia at 404-563-1696 or
