This “French Cottage”-style manor, as it’s described by architects Spitzmiller & Norris, sits in the Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta. It was decorated by designer Suzanne Kasler and featured in House Beautiful magazine. When a little birdie told me that it’s on the market, I had to take a look!
It may have been inspired by traditional French Normandy cottages, but it’s larger than most with 6 bedrooms, 8 full baths, and nearly 6,500 square feet. The gated property is listed for $3.1 million.
This photo of the entry hall and a couple other photos were taken by Frances Janisch for HB. The rest are from the Sotheby’s listing.
The walk-in butler’s pantry is to-die for:
The master bedroom:
The house has 6 fireplaces.

There’s been a lot of discussion here and on Facebook about the fact that there are only shutters on one side of the house in front:
A reader named Manuel even took it upon himself to fix the asymmetry in Photoshop. Here’s how it looks with shutters on both sides:
What do you think? Like it better with them or without? (Thanks, Manuel!)
