Live Large and Make Real Estate Money Moves in Atlanta
They call Atlanta “the Hollywood of the South” for a reason, but even before big-time productions like The Hunger Games and The Walking Dead used Georgia as their backdrop, Atlanta has produced myriad famous personalities, including rapper Offset, who convinced his now-wife, musician and fellow rapper Cardi B, to move to Atlanta. Back in 2019, the couple bought a 22,000-square foot behemoth that shows just how much further your money can go in Atlanta versus other celebrity hotspots.
Buckhead: Atlanta’s Beverly Hills
Located in Atlanta’s high-end suburb Buckhead, the couple’s home is 22,000 square feet of opulence. And if “Buckhead” rings a bell, you likely recognize the neighborhood for its other celebrity residents, which has included Elton John, Tyler Perry, and Kenny Rogers. Rumor has it that Cardi’s property was listed at $5.8 million, but the final price paid remains a mystery. Still, that’s just $263.64 per square foot for some of Georgia’s most coveted real estate. Considering this puny 4,760 square foot property in Beverly Hills requires roughly $1 million more for a significantly smaller space, we’re confident the rappers are getting the most bang for their buck in the Peach State.
In proper Cardi B fashion, she offered a very candid tour of the main foyer, her kitchen, and one of the powder rooms on Instagram. She even gave a shout out to her real estate agent; how’s that for word-of-mouth marketing? Of course, if you’re not familiar with Cardi B, viewer discretion is advised for some profane language.
The mansion, which stands three stories high, also features a six-car garage, a classic wood-paneled study, a game room, a his and hers walk-in closet so big that they come with a ladder, and, of course, an epic pool surrounded by beautifully manicured landscaping. Not enough square footage for your liking? There’s always something bigger in Atlanta. You or your client could always one-up Cardi B with this 33,000 square foot monster.
