This is the private home of Hubert and Norma Humphrey just outside of Atlanta, Georgia. Le Rêve! One of the most significant premier estates in the world! This European inspired home was designed by noted architects Norman Askins and sits on 78 gently rolling acres north of Atlanta. The property features a golf course, lake, tennis court, stables, guest house, home theater, 2 lane bowling.
The very wealthy Hubert Humphrey, a former freight train conductor who founded a marketing and mortgage company called World Leadership Group, spent three years building a dream mega-manse called Le Rêve, which was only completed in 2007. For some reason unknown the Humphreys have already put their recently completed “European inspired” behemoth up for sale with a blistering $45,000,000 price tag.
Designed by Atlanta architect Norman Askins, the four-floor mansion features a 28-foot foyer, two elevators, a 12-car garage, stables, a home theater modeled after the Fabulous Fox in downtown Atlanta, 17 bathrooms, 62 televisions, 300 miles of high-tech wiring and a collection of antiques, furnishings and custom paintings assembled by Norma Humphrey with her three-decorator team.
Le Reve’s 18-hole private golf course was added in 2005.
