Shutze-designed Buckhead mansion to be demolished, replaced

A 1938 Tuxedo Road mansion in Buckhead, designed by renowned architect Philip Trammell Shutze and recently purchased by the CFO of Cox Automotive for $2.2 million, appears destined to be demolished and construction of a 10,000 square-foot replacement.

Plans submitted to the city of Atlanta also show that some 60 trees will be removed along with the historic home, according to a report by Curbed Atlanta.

In preparation for the demolition, there reportedly was an estate sale last weekend at the home, featuring wares such as a “camel back chippendale sofa,” large brass eagles and loads of books.

Schutze designed The Swan House and Garden Hills Elementary School, among many other Atlanta homes and buildings.
