Elton John lists Atlanta apartment – Rob Report
He’s saying goodbye to Peachtree Road! After just over three decades of ownership, Sir Elton John has decided to give up his Atlanta home in the 40-storey Park Place high-rise residential tower in Buckhead. Records show the legendary English musician is asking just under $5 million for the condo, which is listed by Chase Mizell of Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty.
according to The Wall Street Journal And Buckhead.comwhich first reported the story, John initially paid $925,000 for the roughly 2,500-square-foot duplex on 36th Street.y The floor of the building is in the early 1990s. He then selected neighboring units to accommodate his extensive photographic collection, eventually demanding six condominium units spanning two levels.
In all, the four-bedroom, seven-bathroom residence features just over 13,300 square feet of living space highlighted by a spacious living room that could easily accommodate a grand piano, according to the listing, as well as a formal dining room topped with a gallery space. a wood-paneled office/lounge area and a large salon featuring floor-to-ceiling windows. There’s also a lavish master retreat equipped with an adjoining sitting area, a luxurious onyx-topped bathtub, and ample closet space. Elsewhere there is a gym and spa/massage room.
The star unit also comes with several amenities for a monthly HOA fee of $7,851, including nine reserved parking spaces, six private storage units and five dedicated wine storage units.
John (76 years old) told… Wall Street Journal He is selling because he no longer needs a touring base in the United States now that he has completed his farewell tour. He, his husband David Furnish, and their two sons reside primarily on a centuries-old estate in Windsor, England, west of London. They also own a house in Nice, France.
During his final concert in Atlanta last September, the singer and pianist addressed the audience about spending time in his southern city: “I’ve lived here for 30 years, and I’ve loved every minute.” “So, I will take you with me in my heart, in my soul, and I will never forget you.”
