Emily Giffen’s Brookhaven Manor

Jon Real Estate Leave a Comment

Taking a break from articles about economic implosion in Greece and political instability in Syria, I spotted an interesting tidbit on Atlanta real estate in today’s Wall Street Journal.  Evidently Emily Giffen, one of the world’s most successful “”chick-lit“” authors, is selling her Brookhaven home.

According to the WSJ:

The owners say that visitors to this traditional looking brick home in the historic Brookhaven neighborhood often ask when it was built, and are surprised to hear that the house only dates back to 2000. The original owners built the house to look like the older homes in the area and thus chose a slate roof, mature landscaping and antique doorknobs from a Chicago hotel. The owners, who were expecting twins when house hunting, also liked that the house needed little work. The family room opens onto a garden with a plunge pool, an outdoor fireplace, a grill area and a one-bedroom guest cottage with a bath. There is guest suite over the garage.
