A much-filmed Buckhead estate that just listed for $4.5 million is slated to go up for auction next month at a minimum reserve price of $2.7 million.
The Georgian revival mansion located at 4455 Harris Trail in Buckhead was listed for $4.5 million on Oct. 12, according to Realtor.com. Listing agent Debbie Sonenshine said she had offers from two buyers pre-auction and they are being evaluated. One is from a local business owner and the other is someone moving from out of state, she said. If the offers aren’t accepted, then the property would go to a 72-hour online worldwide auction Nov. 17-19, with a reserve price, or minimum offer, of $2.7 million, with a 12% buyer’s premium. Bidders have to pay a $100,000 refundable fee to participate, and prospective buyers have to show proof of funds.
The eight-bedroom, seven and a half bath home encompasses 15,738 square feet and is surrounded by a private 2-acre lot with a gated entrance. The home was built by former three-time Super Bowl champion tackle Steve Wallace of the San Francisco 49ers and has been a favorite location for filming TV shows, movies, music videos and commercials.
The current owner is landscape designer and master planner Scott Hostetler of Hostetler Design Worldwide LLC, which has an office in Atlanta. Hostetler has worked on projects all over the world, including serving as designer of record for the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotels during phase 1 of Hong Kong Disneyland. Since 2017, he and his wife and three children have been splitting their time between Atlanta and Honolulu, he said. The children are in school in Honolulu. Hawaii was a logical place to have a second home between the East Coast and Asian destinations where he travels for work such as Shanghai and Manila, Philippines, he said. See more at ABC.
