Dexter Scott King, the son of civil rights icons Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King, has closed on a $1.8 million home in an affluent uptown district of Atlanta, according to Curbed Atlanta.
King, who sold his $4.8 million four-bedroom, six-bath Malibu mansion last year, has been on the West Coast since 2000. King said in an email last year that he and his wife, Leah Weber King, want to spend more time in Atlanta, possibly to heal the troubled relationships he's had with his siblings.
“My wife and I have been discussing for quite some time the idea of returning to Atlanta,” King said. “And with the present efforts to bring about resolution, lasting peace and healing within myself and my siblings, now seemed the perfect time.”
The 7,451-square-foot Mediterranean-style Buckhead home has five bedrooms and 5½ baths. The half-acre corner lot includes a two-story covered loggia with outdoor fireplace.
