Renowned musician Elton John has put his opulent two-story condominium in Atlanta on the market, with an asking price of € 4,73 million. Nestled within the prestigious Park Place, a 40-story condominium in the heart of Atlanta, this lavish 13,332-square-foot unit offers a slew of high-end amenities, including an in-home fitness studio, a spa and massage room, and ample space to house an extensive wine collection.
Elton John’s real estate tastes exude timeless luxury, boasting features like onyx-clad bathrooms, floor-to-ceiling windows, and interiors meticulously designed by his frequent collaborators, Fred Dilger and Stan Topol.<Atlanta may seem an unexpected choice for the iconic pop culture figure, but his connection to the city runs deep.
Back in 1992, John purchased a modest 2,500-square-foot condominium in Park Place and subsequently acquired five additional units, creating this sprawling living space. Reflecting on his time in Atlanta, he fondly recalls the city's warmth and support, particularly during his post-rehabilitation period. He described the city as a place where he found authentic connections with people leading ordinary lives, and he reciprocated that affection by making Atlanta his home.
The centrepiece of the condo is undoubtedly its breathtaking views, offered through double-height, floor-to-ceiling windows that showcase Atlanta’s skyline. The living room exudes quiet luxury with its neutral palette, coffered ceilings, and tactile textures.
Even the home office in this residence defies convention, featuring modern wood panelling that would excite anyone about the nine-to-five grind. As a style icon, Elton John has ensured ample space for his extensive wardrobe, and his shoe closet is equally impressive.
The condo comprises four bedrooms: a romantic oasis with sun-drenched windows and a private terrace. John’s departure from touring has prompted him to put this magnificent condo on the market. It boasts a gym, a massage room, a formal dining room, a wood-panelled office and lounge area, and a grand salon with floor-to-ceiling windows. The primary suite includes an adjoining seating area and an opulent bathroom adorned with onyx. It also features expansive closets to house his vibrant clothing collection.
Additional perks include nine reserved parking spaces, six private storage units, and five dedicated wine storage units.
John’s decision to make Atlanta his home base during his U.S. tours was driven by its strategic location, allowing him to easily reach various cities across the country while returning to the comfort of his bed. His passion for collecting photography significantly expanded his Park Place residence into a gallery space with an impressive collection of works by renowned photographers such as Man Ray, André Kertész, and Berenice Abbott.
The condo’s elaborate Versace upholstery and decorations reflect John’s longtime friendship with the Versace family. The space also houses a piano, blown glass, books, antiques, and religious artefacts from his travels to South America and Mexico.
Now that John has concluded his touring career, he no longer requires a U.S. base. He and his husband, David Furnish, reside primarily in England and own an ancient estate in Windsor. They also maintain a residence in Nice, France.
While John will miss Atlanta and the friends he has made there, his furniture has been removed from the apartment, which has been staged for sale. His photography collection has primarily been relocated to England, and the fate of his furniture remains to be determined.
