740 Fairfield is an outstanding southern estate property featuring an extraordinary home on 3+ gated acres in the heart of Atlanta's posh Buckhead neighborhood. A long winding drive through the main gate takes you to the house which is all brick construction with hints of Charleston architecture on the main facade. Two large palm trees and a free-standing dovecote complete the effect. The 8200 square foot home's interiors are exquisitely crafted featuring an elegant entry foyer boasting a dramatic custom floor of black marble and custom-mitered dark cherry in a diamond pattern, along with a library that features maple flooring with birds-eye maple inlay. Brazilian cherry floors with a dark, rich stain grace the dining and living rooms. There are heavy moldings throughout, generous sized rooms with lots of light and many hidden porches and nooks to enjoy the outdoors. There is a den/study and guest suite/office both paneled completely in antique wormy chestnut and custom Danish cabinetry throughout the house. There is chef's kitchen, wine cellar, heated pool and pool house (with full bath, wet bar, and outdoor shower), outdoor kitchen/gazebo, koi pond and a heated/cooled three-car garage that doubles as an entertainment space. The entire property is lushly landscaped and the pinnacle of privacy. Built on 27 steel beams and poured concrete. Whole house natural gas generator. Five fireplaces.
