Akon’s new five-acre estate with a pool, six-car garage and 1,200-bottle wine cellar was profiled in the AJC’s Private Quarters column three years ago, when it was listed for sale at $2.5 million.
Built in 1990 and set on 4.6 acres, Akon’s home located in the Atlanta National Country Club has six bedrooms, eight full bathrooms and two half bathrooms, swimming pool with a spa, and 8,697 square feet.
Its 20-foot by 30-foot kitchen features black granite countertops, a fireplace, four sinks and two ovens. The estate includes a caretaker’s apartment, a dining room that seats 12 people, a media room, and a paneled library with a coffered ceiling.
An inlaid marble floor and crystal chandelier grace the two-story entrance foyer of the 12,500-square-foot home. In addition to the bar and billiards area, the terrace level includes a spa, sauna and steam shower next to the fitness room.
