A Buckhead mansion that originally belonged to a bank president is on the market for the first time in its 79-year history.
Boxwoods Gardens & Gifts owners Dan Belman and Randy Korando have selected Harry Norman, Realtors agent Rebie Benedict to sell their home in Buckhead, and it’s listed for $1.895 million.
Fulton Federal Savings Bank President and Chairman W.O. DuVall built the home at 526 W. Wesley Road in 1940. He and his family lived there until Belman and Korando purchased it nearly 30 years ago.
“We actually found it at an estate sale,” Belman said in a news release. “We were driving down West Wesley 26 years ago and saw one of the signs on a light post that said, ‘Estate Sale.’ We went to see if there was anything cool to buy, and we ended up buying the house.”
Sitting on a 0.75-acre wooded lot, the home has four to five bedrooms; 4.5 bathrooms; a unique rooftop terrace overlooking the ultra-private backyard with professional landscaping; a custom-built stone grotto; upper-, middle- and lower-level slate patios; a fish pond and walking paths.
“The moment you approach the home, which is in the heart of Buckhead, you are instantly wowed by its ivy-color façade, brick and limestone,” Benedict said in a news release. “From the beautifully orchestrated gardens to the enchanting wine cellar, every part of this home is truly spectacular.”
