NeNe Leakes lists Atlanta House – DIRT


She only bought it just over eight months ago for $1.75million, but reality TV personality, actress, comedian and entrepreneur Nene Leakes has already knocked down her luxury villa in the Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead returned to the market at a profit of $2.5 million.

The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” OG, who deceased the drama series in 2020 and earlier this year for follow-up the companies behind the hit show, citing workplace discrimination, bought the townhouse in the months after her husband Gregg Leakes died in September. (As of late June, the trial was ongoing negotiated.)

That the SWAGG boutique owner, back on the reality TV carousel and currently doing her thing on the BET+ series “College Hill: Celebrity Edition,” decided to sell out so quickly may or may not have something to do with she The new boyfriend of dapper fashion designer Nyonisela Sioh, who doesn’t live in Atlanta but about 250 miles away in Charlotte, North Carolina.

One of the five-star hotel’s three private villas, the 4,000-square-foot townhouse’s three levels of living space sit atop a four-car secure underground garage where Leakes parks his Range Rover next to his over $300,000 Rolls Royce Wraith. (She is, after all, “rich, bitch!”) Guests arrive through the hotel and into a private gated courtyard, while a private elevator makes navigating the villa’s four floors in spiked Louboutins an easier and less painful experience than the stairs.

Wide-plank wood floors add coziness to the living room and dining room combination that showcases a high ceiling accented with cove molding, a well-stocked bar, and a minimalist fireplace wrapped in gray marble. Given his predilection for OTT luxury, it’s no surprise the decor is glamorous, with a curvaceous ivory leather sofa, two mirrored coffee tables, barrel chairs upholstered in alligator-patterned leather, and a chandelier. in the shape of a shimmering drum above the dining table.

Other highlights include a sparkling kitchen diner with snow-white cabinetry, cascading countertops and designer appliances, a downstairs study/office with access to the garden, and a family room.

There are three bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, according to listings held by Debra Johnson of Coldwell Banker Realty. They include a penthouse-level owner’s suite replete with a white marble bathroom, linear gas fireplace, small terrace, and spacious walk-in closet and walk-in closet. Also on this floor, and well suited to a “glamorous suite”, is a good sized room with a second kitchen as well as an adjoining bathroom and dressing room with washing machines.

Residents are pampered with a multitude of amenities, as told real estate agent.comthe first to experience the list, such a 24-hour concierge, indoor saltwater pool, full-service spa, state-of-the-art fitness center, and upscale restaurant that gives a French brasserie a fresh southern flair.

A few months after closing the townhouse, Leakes sold his 10,500 square foot mansion in Duluth, about 25 miles northeast of Buckhead, for $2.65 million; the sale price was a steep discount from the $4 million she originally wanted, but still a worthwhile amount compared to the nearly $2.1 million she paid in 2015.
