Sir Elton John, the legendary English musician known for hits like “Rocket Man” and “Your Song”, is parting with his sprawling Buckhead condominium. Priced just shy of $5 million, this esteemed residence is situated in Park Place, an iconic high-rise residential tower representing the epitome of Atlanta’s luxury real estate. Set on Peachtree Road, Park Place has a reputation for providing both opulence and privacy, making it a favored choice for the city’s elite. John’s condominium, his haven for over three decades, underscores this legacy of elegance.

According to property records, John acquired a duplex on the 36th floor of the Park Place building in the early 1990s for $925,000. The 2,500-square-foot duplex was subsequently expanded as he purchased neighboring units. Over time, his love for the city and desire for more space prompted him to consolidate six different units across two levels and transform them into his ideal living space. This strategic combination was partly due to house his vast collection of photography.

Now, this grand dwelling stands as a testament to luxurious living. Spread over 13,300 square feet, the condominium comprises four bedrooms and seven baths. The interiors are marked by a large living room, effortlessly housing a grand piano, a nod to the musician’s renowned career. Adjacent is a formal dining room, complemented by an overhead gallery space, perfect for art and photography enthusiasts. The wood-paneled office and lounge offer a serene workspace, while the grand salon, featuring unobstructed floor-to-ceiling windows, provides panoramic views of the city.

Of particular note in the condominium is the master retreat, the epitome of luxury. A sanctuary in itself, it features an adjoining seating area, a lavish onyx-clad bathroom, and generous closet spaces. A dedicated gym and spa/massage room add to the plush amenities of this dwelling.

The property’s premium value is also attributed to the additional amenities financed by a monthly HOA fee of $7,851. These include nine reserved parking spots, six individual storage units, and five exclusive wine storage units essential for wine aficionados.

Now 76, Elton John shared with The Wall Street Journal that his decision to sell the property comes from no longer needing a US touring base. With the culmination of his farewell tour, the need for an American residence has diminished. John, his husband, David Furnish, and their two children primarily reside in a historic estate in Windsor, England. They also maintain a residence in Nice, France.

John’s emotional connection to Atlanta remains undiminished despite the sale, so this parting is somewhat bittersweet. Reflecting on his three-decade-long association with the city during his final concert last September, John said, “I’ve lived here for 30 years, and I’ve loved every minute. So, I will take you with me in my heart, in my soul, and I’ll never forget you.”

Chase Mizell of Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty holds the listing for this magnificent condominium. This sale marks the end of an era for John in Atlanta but opens the door for a new owner to possess a piece of music history in one of the city’s most coveted residential towers.
