Woodland Hills Manor
1690 W Paces Ferry Rd NW, Atlanta, GA 30327
From the listing with Kevin Knox: “Historical architectural styles are the most sought after in Atlanta. To maintain the true integrity of this desirable style, it’s often necessary to compromise on modern functionality. Not so with Woodland Hills Manor, which seamlessly combines the look and feel of an historic estate with a million dollar state-of-the-art technology system that controls everything from the sound system to security – even from your mobile phone.
Set high on a hill with commanding views overlooking a forest of mature trees, Woodland Hills Manor evokes memories of estates from the grandest traditions. The home is constructed from Wissahickon Schist, a special stone imported from Pennsylvania, and is accented further with Indiana limestone and traditional English roof tiles. Some of the windows are filled with leaded sashes using hand-blown bottle glass, while the larger arched windows are steel frame with German Restoration Glass. The impressive limestone front door surround protects the heavy oak door and its leaded glass panels and hand-carved linen-fold panels.
The entry hall welcomes you with thick quartersawn oak wainscoting panels. The centerpiece for this hall is the magnificent oak staircase with its 2-inch-thick panels in period style. On the other side of the foyer is the dining room which has a lofty cathedral ceiling banded by heavy timbering. Overlooking the room is a minstrel gallery, accessed by a hidden door from the second floor, which provides a place for musicians to perform while you and your guests dine. The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra has provided musical ambiance here on several occasions”
