Descante, Estate of the Day
When I was a child it always seemed to me like it would be a good gig to write for soap operas. Scripting all those weddings and amnesia attacks and dramatic returns from the dead seemed like so much fun. And apparently, if you work at it long enough you can make quite a tidy profit. Behold the home of Bridget and Jerry Dobson who wrote for a variety of soap operas and created the soap opera Santa Barbara (perhaps most famous for launching the career of Robin Wright Penn). Mrs. Dobson later had a career as a painter.The Dobsons built their home in the Buckhead area of Atlanta in 1997. The massive home sits on four acres in Tuxedo Park and has been done up to the nines with the most lavish of details. It has seven bedrooms. 11.5 baths and an unabashedly classic and romantic style. It is listed at $19 million and the annual taxes alone are in the six figures. After the jump, the home that Bridget Dobson calls the house that fantasy built.
