Best-Selling Author Emily Giffin Wants $9M for Her Elegant Atlanta Estate

Perched along a tree-lined street in the affluent Atlanta district of Buckhead is the home of best-selling author Emily Giffin. Known for her novel turned rom-com Something Borrowed, who wouldn’t want to borrow this home? Now asking $8.995 million, this might be ‘The One & Only’ opportunity to nab the author’s classic beauty minutes from downtown Atlanta.

The circa-1929 Georgian Revival is surrounded by sprawling greenery across five acres. Originally built by famous Atlanta architect Philip Trammel Shutze, the home has seen extensive renovations in almost 100 years yet still maintains its historic integrity. At various points, Architects Spitzmiller and Norris and Stan Dixon played a heavy hand in changes, along with designers Amy Morris and Beth Webb.

The facade greets you with beautiful brick and tall columns accented by a teal blue door, opening to the home’s foyer. There, find a romance novel-worthy winding spiral staircase with a custom iron-wrought railing and archways featuring custom glass overheads. The kitchen has been completely modernized with updated appliances as well as Calacatta gold marble countertops and painted black and white wood flooring by artist Raymond Goins. Living areas prioritize traditional elegance and comfort, brimming with marble fireplaces, vaulted ceilings, and built-in bookshelves.

The main floor holds the primary suite, and despite being around the central living spaces, it is certainly a private retreat. Designed for relaxation,it includes separate closets and a spa-like bathroom featuring a free-standing tub. Upstairs holds the additional four bedrooms and five bathrooms.

Coming with plenty of nooks and crannies to explore, the main house and 1,800-square-foot guest house provide nearly 9,300 square feet of interiors. With grand rooms and terraces, plus a pool, the estate is more than equipped for any occasion.
