Only a few weeks after hitting the market, Elton John’s Atlanta condo sold for $7.225 million.
That’s a massive 45 percent over the ‘Rocket Man’ singer’s price per the listing agent via WSJ.
September saw Elton John’s condo go on the market for $4.995 million after the musician wrapped his farewell tour.
Park Place on Peachtree in Atlanta was an easy spot for the musician to fly to.
“The city adopted me and I adopted it,” John said.
He preferred the “courteous and friendly” feel of the city to the busy cities of Los Angeles and New York City.
“I like that Southern hospitality,” he told AD of Atlanta.
Chase Mizell of Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty was the listing agent.
While Elton John’s agent refused to identity the buyer, he did tell the publication that they are an Atlanta local and paid cash.
A quick sale for any market, the coveted four-bedroom gained “a ton of interest right out of the gate”.
Spanning 13,500 square feet, it boasts views of Atlanta’s skyline and the Buckhead, Georgia, tree canopy.
The lucky owner now also has a gym, massage room, and an onyx primary bathroom and balcony as well as expansive, shoe-lined closets.
Elton John’s 36th-floor condo has been refurbished many times over the years.
The floors at the time of sale were blonde hardwood and the condo has lots of open wall space to display the art-lover’s collection.
The ‘Candle in the Wind’ singer purchased a 2,500-square-foot duplex at the Park Place on Peachtree in 1992.
Not content with that space, he bought six five more apartments from the 250 in the building over the decades.
It’s one of the most expensive condo sales in Georgia’s capital, according to the local multiple listings service.
The most expensive was a condo at the St. Regis Atlanta.
It sold for $14 million in 2019.
John primarily lives in England but needed a home in the US while touring.
