The spread at 4100 Paces Ferry Road NW sits on 17 acres along the Chattahoochee River. Amenities include a gym, spa, home theater, underground ballroom with catering kitchen, formal and informal gardens, lighted tennis court, guard house and caretakers’ suite, according to the listing.

Here are some photos, supplied to the AJC last year when the property was listed:

“It is by far the most expensive home sold in Atlanta in over a year. In the past year, the second place went to 2000 Garraux Road which sold at $6 million in August of 2015 and is located by Tyler Perry’s back gate,” noted Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices agent Tina Hunsicker, who was not affiliated with the sale but congratulated the agents, with a different firm, who closed the deal.

The new owner is an “out of state buyer” who got a good value, Hunsicker said.

“Quite a deal for that volume of land in the most prestigious zip code in Atlanta – 30327,” she said. “The land alone sold for $9 million back in 2005 when Tyler bought it.  A 2-acre lot in this area is now selling for about $1.5 million and a 1-acre lot is selling for right around $1 million.  So this land could be broken up and sold for over $12 million.”

Perry’s current home was the site of a private party that we attended following the red-carpet screening of “Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor” in 2013.

No photos were allowed, and security was very proactive, with security guards and cameras at work.

As large and impressive as the house was, it definitely felt like a home, with photos of Perry and his mom and numerous friends placed in the library, kitchen and other areas.

Guests were ferried from the screening to the home afterward. Perry stood at the door and personally welcomed every person who arrived. The guest list included stars of “Temptation” – Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Lance Gross, Ella Joyce and Renée Taylor among them – who joined “Real Housewives” NeNe Leakes and Kandi Burruss (and maybe Cynthia Bailey; I saw her on the red carpet but didn’t spot her at the party).

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, who showed up as a surprise, also were at the party. I didn’t see them either and saw Kim only briefly as she was whisked past the press at the red carpet. (She had a role in “Temptation).

I love the privacy, nestled trees, security, driveways, brilliant architecture, design, and construction; pathways. If I had won the PowerBall; this estate would be in my ownership! However, God showed me a multimillion-dollar estate that I hope to move into at the end of this month. It reminds me of King Solomon's house according to 1 Kings 7:1 KJV.

That is a beautiful home and I love the privacy of it, but even if I could afford all that...I probably wouldn't enjoy it as much and I sure wouldn't want to deal with the property taxes and the maitenance of it.
