‘Engulfed by Opulence’: $45M Mansion Is Georgia’s Most Expensive Home

A mansion built a couple of decades ago evokes the grandeur of days of yore. Designed to look historic, the regal residence is the most expensive home in all of Georgia.

Measuring over 13,500 square feet, the Georgian-style estate in Bolingbroke, GA, is on the market for $45.25 million.

“There’s so much to see. Essentially, you’re engulfed by opulence. The craftsmanship makes you feel like you kind of step back in time,” says Donda Combs , a sales representative for the home.

The listing agent is Susan Ayers with Clickit Realty.

Known as Great Hill Place and completed in 2002, the home features seven bedrooms and eight full bathrooms. Most importantly, it sits on a 329-acre parcel about 70 miles south of Atlanta .

While the property’s scale is difficult to capture in listing photos, “I describe it as palatial,” says Combs.

Then you turn your eyes to the sky and see an intricate dome featuring murals of cherubs hovering far, far above.

“It is 85 feet from the ground to the dome,” Combs explains. “You can’t zoom back far enough to show those hand-painted murals, with all those windows at the top.”

The third story of the mansion, a massive rooftop deck, surrounds the dome’s rotunda.

In the main bedroom, the huge bathroom has an elaborate ceiling mural.

The current price represents a nearly threefold increase on the list price of early 2021. It was listed for $15.25 million in April and $18.75 million in September. The mansion came back on the market in October with a much steeper asking price. Combs says the large increase is because both she and the homeowner looked at what the home really cost to build. “It’s extraordinarily defensible, where we are priced,” she says, adding that the original price didn’t take the property’s outbuildings or many land improvements into account. “I am really comfortable with it.”
