One of my lottery pipe dreams would be to restore the old Craigie House (also known as the DAR building) on Piedmont Rd across from the Driving Club. I adore that place, but it is in miserable shape now.

I wish something would happen with that house. I see it when I walk to the park, and it looks so sad.

A penthouse at the top of Vinings Mountain (Mt. Wilkinson?), or elsewhere in Vinings.

I could have a hell of a time with a water-balloon launcher from up there.

If money were REALLY no object, yet it would HAVE TO be Atlanta, then I guess Buckhead.
Kids to Westminster, house somewhere on West Paces Ferry, vacations in Europe. WTH.
I'd go all the way to town.

Otherwise, if money were no object and it was still "a free country", I'd be out of the country.

Southern Europe (France, Italy or Spain) ...we would be there in seconds flat and would never look back.

But money IS an object - BIG object; so back on Earth again.

A penthouse downtown. I used to live in a really nice joint downtown on the 10th floor and my view was crazy. BUT, the cost was killing me.

I'd buy the building where I work and turn the top floor ... no, make it the top three floors ... into a penthouse.

Even though it's not in the best location by some measures (not far from the Cumberland Mall), it does have a wonderful skyline view!

I'd keep my current house as well. I love it and its location, and there are times when I'd rather be settled in a smaller home in a wooded area.
